The Program requires that all students maintain health insurance coverage that is valid in the US and abroad.  Students may be covered under a domestic health insurance plan with international coverage, or a supplemental international health insurance carrier. Particpants are stongly encouraged to check with their current insurance carrier to see what kind of coverage is offered abroad, as some policies will provide it, but as reimbursable costs.  Please refer to this checklist of questions to guide your conversation with your current healthcare insurance provider.
