Everything you need to know about international student insurance

Why should I take out international student insurance?

Are you going to study abroad? Don't forget your international student health insurance! The fact is, once you travel overseas you will no longer be covered by your country's Social Security or healthcare system. By taking out international student insurance, you benefit from a healthcare solution that:

- is tailored to your budget and the healthcare costs of your destination country
- covers you in your country of nationality, residence, and during your travels
- covers hospitalization and healthcare costs which can be very high in some countries
- includes a repatriation benefit, useful in the event of an accident that requires medical repatriation to your country of nationality or residence

Am I covered by Social Security during my stay?

This will highly depend on your home country and its agreement with your country of destination, if there is an agreement at all. If there is one, then your healthcare expenses abroad may be covered, but usually only for a certain period of time, and often only partially. However, healthcare costs vary greatly from one country to another and can quickly rise, especially in the private sector (where the quality of care is generally higher than in the public sector). You will only be reimbursed up to the amount agreed upon with your destination country, which may still leave you largely out of pocket.

How do I request a reimbursement?

Thanks to the Easy Claim app, you can request your reimbursement in a few clicks from your smartphone or tablet. It doesn't matter how high your bill is!

What should I do in case of an emergency?

We can be reached 24/7 at the emergency numbers listed on your insurance card. It is available in your Easy Claim app and downloadable to your wallet. You’ve been urgently hospitalised? Our teams get in contact directly with the hospital in order to provide care.
