Alternate Health Insurance Options for International Scholars

Insurance Plans for International Scholars

The following organizations provide insurance plans for international scholars. The Institute does not deal directly with these organizations nor have any connections with them. This information is provided simply to present other insurance options available. Please be careful in reading these plans as many provide only urgent and emergency coverage and no coverage for routine medical and have exclusions for pre-existing conditions. Also some plans specify that they have the option to return you to your home country for treatment once you are stabilized if that is determined to be the most cost effective alternative.
