International Student Insurance Plan Updates for 2013

shutterstock_114874591Just in time for Spring, our international student insurance plan updates for 2013 are complete! The Student Secure plan and Atlas Travel plan now offer even more comprehensive coverage for the new 2013-2014 school year at a reduced rate, meaning it is going to give students access to great international insurance options. Both plans have received enhancements offering greater coverage with less out of pocket expense- not only does this provide students with more coverage for less- but now we meet even more school’s insurance requirements. Some of the plan change highlights include the following:

Student Secure Plan: The Student Secure plan is the most sought-after student insurance plan that we carry, and for many reasons. It provides coverage that will meet most school insurance requirements, and goes beyond the coverage basics with benefits like maternity, mental health, organized sports and pre-existing condition coverage.

Each of these levels are now available to those who have a valid F1 or J1 visa- even if they aren’t a full time international student or scholar! Also, the Budget and Select level have both expanded their sports coverage and include even more intercollegiate, intramural and interscholastic sports.


  • Deductible reduced to only $25 ($50 out of network)
  • ER deductible reduced to only $100
  • Pre-existing condition waiting period reduced to only 6 months
  • Mental health coverage increased to 80% (60% if out of network)
  • Monthly rates as low as $52


  • Deductible reduced to only $45 ($90 out of network)
  • Pre-existing condition waiting period reduced to only 6 months

  • Up to two children can be added to your plan for free, when two parents are on the plan as well
