*A pre-existing condition is any injury, illness, sickness, disease, or other physical, medical, mental, or nervous disorder, condition, or ailment that, with reasonable medical certainty, existed at the time of application or at any time during the 12 months prior to the effective date of this insurance, whether or not previously manifested, symptomatic or known, diagnosed, treated, or disclosed to us prior to the effective date, and including any and all subsequent, chronic or recurring complications or consequences related thereto or resulting or arising therefrom.

**An acute onset of a pre-existing condition is a sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence that is of short duration, is rapidly progressive, and requires urgent care. A pre-existing condition that is a chronic or congenital, or that gradually becomes worse over time, is not acute onset of a pre-existing condition.

The Acute Onset of Pre-existing Condition benefit will only apply if all of the following conditions are met:

a) The Acute onset of a Pre-Existing Condition does not directly or indirectly relate to a chronic condition or congenital condition;

b) Treatment must be obtained within twenty-four (24) hours of the sudden and unexpected outbreak or reoccurrence;

c) You must be under eighty (80) years of age;

d) You must not be traveling against or in disregard of the recommendations, established treatment programs, or medical advice of a physician or other healthcare provider;

e) You must not be traveling with the intent or purpose to seek or obtain treatment for the pre-existing condition;

f) You must be traveling outside your home country

 

Certain types of medical expenses are excluded from coverage under StudentSecure international student insurance. Some exclusions are listed here. Refer to the Description of Coverage for the complete list of exclusions.

  • Pre-existing conditions are excluded during the first six (6) months of coverage under StudentSecure Elite and Select and are excluded during the first twelve (12) months of coverage under StudentSecure Budget. Pre-existing conditions are excluded throughout coverage under StudentSecure Smart, except charges resulting directly from an Acute Onset of Pre-existing Condition, an Emergency Medical Evacuation, or Repatriation of Remains.

NOTE: A pre-existing condition is any injury, illness, sickness, disease, or other physical, medical, mental, or nervous disorder, condition, or ailment that, with reasonable medical certainty, existed at the time of application or at any time during the 12 months prior to the effective date of this insurance, whether or not previously manifested, symptomatic or known, diagnosed, treated, or disclosed to us prior to the effective date, and including any and all subsequent, chronic or recurring complications or consequences related thereto or resulting or arising therefrom.

Why Do I Need

International Student Health Insurance?

There are several reasons to consider an international student insurance plan like StudentSecure for your overseas studies:

  • To Meet Visa Requirements: Most countries require international students to possess a valid student visa. Some visas require proof of insurance that meets specific requirements. StudentSecure meets the insurance requirements of most visas, including the J-1 visa.

    As a StudentSecure policyholder, you will have access to a visa letter you can use as proof of coverage. You can download your visa letter through the Member Portal, where you can conveniently manage your policy online.

  • To Meet Your Study Abroad Program or School Requirements: Your program or university may require you to have valid student health insurance that meets requirements. Many programs and schools provide their own insurance plans, but oftentimes allow students to purchase alternate coverage that meets requirements.

    Upon purchase of a StudentSecure policy, we will help you provide proof of coverage that meets requirements to your program or school. Simply submit a request for a waiver form and/or visa letter to [email protected]. We will send completed copies of the form(s) to you and your school.

  • To Cover Unexpected Medical Expenses: Your regular health insurance may not provide adequate coverage while you are outside of your home country. International student health insurance like StudentSecure can provide travel assistance and help mitigate unexpected medical costs.
