*A pre-existing condition is any condition:

  • that existed (with reasonable medical certainty) 12 months prior to your effective date of coverage, whether or not it was known to you

**The acute onset of a pre-existing condition means a sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence of a pre-existing condition which occurs spontaneously and without advance warning in the form of physician recommendations or symptoms, is of short duration, is rapidly progressive, and requires urgent care.

The acute onset of a pre-existing condition must occur after the effective date of the policy. Treatment must be obtained within 24 hours of the sudden and unexpected outbreak or recurrence. Chronic or congenital conditions or pre-existing conditions that gradually become worse over time will not be considered acute onset

Why Do I Need

International Student Health Insurance?

There are several reasons to consider an international student health 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 Student Zone, 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.
