Medical Insurance

Comprehensive international medical insurance is available to all students enrolled in an Arcos Learning Abroad program. Coverage is provided through International Student Insurance. The policy covers qualified medical expenses during your official program dates.

The policy includes:

  • Medical Expenses Benefits

  • Accidental Death Coverage

  • Emergency Medical Evacuation

  • Repatriation of Remains Benefits

  • Trip Interruption Benefit

Using Your Own Medical Insurance Policy

Often students already have very comprehensive international medical insurance through their primary provider or through their home university. It is not uncommon that the home university requires their students to use their international medical insurance plan. To verify your coverage, first call your insurance provider and ask if you are covered internationally and in what capacity. Provide your insurance company the exact dates of the program in which you are enrolled. If international coverage is provided, get the details from your insurance provider in the event you need to go to the doctor while abroad. Once you have this information, then also ask your study abroad office what their policies are for international medical insurance while abroad.


The health insurance plan covers students if they were to contract COVID-19 while on the program.

Additional Days of Insurance Coverage

If you plan to extend your time abroad outside of your official Arcos Learning Abroad program dates, and would like international medical insurance coverage for those additional days, please contact us. We can extend your policy dates at an additional cost per day. This amount will be added to your program invoice.
