Organized Sports Coverage

Most colleges and universities have insurance requirements that international students must meet before they are able to enroll for classes. International students participating in sports must have insurance that also includes sports coverage. Students looking for a student health insurance plan that will cover them during their studies outside of their home country and that also includes organized sports coverage might be interested in the Student Secure plan.

The Student Secure plan comes in three levels: smart ($200,000 in coverage), budget ($250,000 in coverage) and select ($300,000 in coverage). The budget and select level of this plan have organized sports coverage for basketball, baseball, cross country, dance team, football, golf, kickball, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track, volleyball, weight training and wrestling.

Covered individuals on the Student Secure plan who are participating in intercollegiate, interscholastic, intramural or club sports will have medical expense coverage up to $5,000 per injury or illness.

The Student Secure plan automatically includes the organized sports coverage without an additional fee. This means that as an international student participating in your school’s sports, you can have the coverage that you are not only required to have, but the coverage you will need for your active lifestyle. The Student Secure plan gives international student athletes the chance to focus on what really matters: their game. International individuals who are on OPT and maintain a valid F1 visa are also eligible to purchase this plan.

A few of the other benefits included in the Student Secure plan are doctor visits, emergency medical evacuation, emergency dental, accidental death and dismemberment, local ambulance, emergency reunion, repatriation of remains, maternity and mental health.
