Healthcare for students: Three international student insurance plans
Are you planning to study abroad? In many instances, medical insurance is a requirement before you can enrol in university.  Insurance plans will vary but you will need one that fully covers your time abroad or risk becoming crippled with bills in the unfortunate event you fall sick or are injured. Healthcare can be mind-blowingly expensive or affordable, depending on the country you are studying in, but having health or medical insurance is one less financial worry to have. Some include mental health and maternity care benefits, return of mortal remains or local burial/cremation benefits, so be sure to comb through the information accordingly. So, if your institution doesn’t already offer a health insurance plan, here are some worth looking into to get you started. Just be sure to check that they meet your school’s requirements. The StudentSecure insurance is an international student health insurance for full-time students or scholars studying outside their home country.
