Medical Insurance

Comprehensive international medical insurance is available to all students enrolled in a Sol Abroad program. Coverage is provided through International Student Insurance. The policy covers qualified medical expenses up to $200,000 USD during your official program dates and has no deductible.

The insurance policy includes:

  • Medical Expenses Benefits
  • Accidental Death Coverage
  • Emergency Medical Evacuation
  • Repatriation of Remains Benefits
  • Trip Interruption Benefit

Please refer to the Insurance Policy Brochure for policy details.

How to File a Claim

In the event you require medical attention while abroad, under most circumstances you will pay for any medical expenses out-of-pocket and submit a claim form directly to the insurance provider for reimbursement. If for any reason you are not able to pay for the medical attention received our onsite staff can pay the medical expenses on your behalf. You must reimburse them before your program end date. To file a claim, please submit the original, itemized receipts along with a claim form. Claim instructions are found in the Sol Student Zone. To file a claim, you will need your full name, SSN and passport information. Claims must be filed within 60 days date of your policy end date. This insurance policy does contain pre-notification requirements. You need to notify the insurance provider in advance (within 48 hours for emergencies) for any hospitalizations or surgeries as well as other items listed on your identification card or in the policy description.

For all claims information please refer to the SOL Student Zone.

Using your own Medical Insurance Policy

Often, students enrolled in our programs use their existing insurance policy. After applying to our program, your parents can state which policy you will use when they complete our "Insurance Verification Form". Some families may choose to use their own insurance policy, therefore please make sure you select that you do not need our policy when you complete your Sol Abroad forms. 

Additional Days of Insurance Coverage

If you plan to extend your time abroad, outside of your official 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.
