If you're a U.S. citizen traveling with InterExchange you are required to have travel medical insurance during your program. Your policy should have at least $100,000 coverage and include emergency evacuation and repatriation. We also recommend that you consider a policy with a low (or zero) co-pay and deductible.
International Student Insurance
International Student Insurance offers coverage for non-students as well. It's easy to plug in your details and get a quote for your specific program duration on their site.
World Nomads makes the otherwise boring topic of travel medical insurance seem almost fun, with helpful resources, a blog, travel contests and scholarships.
ISIC Card or IYTC Card
The International Student Identity Card (ISIC), or International Youth Travel Card (IYTC) for non-students is essentially a one year membership card that gets you discounts on various travel-related things around the world, like museum entries or train fare. Most of their cards include travel medical insurance for the full year. "Premium" and "Explorer" levels offer upgraded coverage preferred by InterExchange.
InterExchange is not an insurance broker or advisor. Please consult a professional insurance agent before making decisions regarding your travel medical insurance coverage.
