Why do I need student medical insurance?

Having student health insurance is critical when studying abroad and overseas. Often, primary health insurance plans don't cover medical expenses if traveling abroad. Meaning, if you become ill or get hurt when traveling, you'll be responsible for medical expenses. Many schools, visa programs, and host countries may require student travel and health insurance.

Liaison Student provides comprehensive international health insurance coverage, an extensive network of medical providers abroad, and 24-hour travel assistance for students traveling abroad.

Who can buy a Liaison Student Travel Health Insurance plan?

You may buy a plan for yourself, your spouse and dependents if you are:

  • A full-time student, faculty member, or scholar;
  • Involved in full-time educational or research activities;
  • Traveling outside your home country*; and
  • At least 12 years old and younger than 65 years of age.

You should list yourself first on the plan as the primary insured.

*What is my home country? For non-U.S. citizens, home country is the country where you have your permanent residence. For U.S. citizens, home country is always the United States.
