Will my free insurance from my home country cover me while I study in the US?

As an international student in the USA, you will need to get student insurance in the USA. Your domestic insurance will most likely not cover you while you are in the US. Most universities have standard visa and insurance requirements for students. All of the student plans offered by VisitorsCoverage meet the specific requirements for student visas set by US universities, but also be sure to check with your school to ensure there are no additional requirements that need to be met. You can purchase any of the student insurance plans on our Student Insurance Plans page. If you need more information or need help selecting a plan, feel free to email us at support@visitorscoverage.com or call us at 1.866.384.9104.
