While studying abroad, it's critical to have a solid health and accident insurance policy in place, as well as coverage for emergency evacuation and repatriation. Although your health insurance provider may cover you when traveling (not all do), there are a few things that travel insurance will cover that health insurance will not. The following are some of the various topics covered:
- If your flight is delayed or canceled, you'll be covered.
- Luggage that has gone missing
- Personal items that have been stolen
- In the event of a medical emergency or a natural disaster, evacuation is required.
