If you are the parent of a student studying abroad, this may be the first time that you are apart from your son or daughter for such a long time. It is natural to worry about their health and well being, many parents even decide to pay a visit overseas to check up on their child. If you are planning to do the same, before leaving, you want to be sure that you have adequate travel medical insurance coverage for your trip.
Many domestic health insurance plans do not provide coverage while you are overseas, or provide limited coverage. Therefore, before leaving the country, you will want to make sure that your current health insurance plan will cover you internationally. If it does not provide sufficient coverage, you should purchase a short-term health insurance plan.
