In recent years, there have been more and more international students from Australia coming to study in the United States. In 2011 there were over 3,700 Australian international students in the US. Many of these students are athletes who will be playing in a school sport such as soccer. Many international student insurance plans do not include intercollegiate sports coverage, that’s why International Student Insurance is now featuring our Australian athlete student health insurance plan. This plan is designed to meet the needs of international students from Australia who will also need coverage for any school sport related injury.
Our Australian athlete student health insurance plan is called the Student Health Advantage plan. This plan will provide coverage for up to $5,000 per injury or illness relating to intercollegiate and interscholastic sports. Not only does this plan provide coverage to students while on the field but it also provides great coverage for sickness or injury that might occur while off the field as well.
This plan will provide medical coverage up to $500,000 and features a low $5 co-pay for treatment received at the Student Health Center.
Other benefits on this plan include:
- In-patient and out-patient doctor/hospital visits
- Physical Therapy
- Prescription Medication
- Mental Health (including substance abuse)
- Emergency Medical Evacuation/Repatriation
- Pre-existing conditions coverage after 12 months
- And more…
Australian International Student Athletes can purchase this plan for as little as one month of coverage or as much as 12 months. If the plan is purchased for a full 12 months, it will be renewable the following year up to a total of five years.
