As the cost of healthcare continues to rise, we are seeing an increasing number of school and group insurance plans, such as our primary student health plan, remove the option to include spouses and children (dependents) from coverage. For most international students, this has no impact. However, if you have dependents and plan on bringing them with you, you will need to obtain alternative coverage for them.
There are plans with dependent coverage available, and they include the following:
The Atlas Travel medical plan is great for dependents who are needing a year or less of coverage. It offers up to a $2,000,000 policy maximum with various deductible options to choose from.
The Patriot Travel plan is great for dependents who are needing up to 2 years or less of coverage. It offers up to a $2,000,000 policy maximum with various deductible options to choose from.
The major medical insurance plan offers annually renewable coverage for dependents, with an extensive range of benefits designed for those needing longer term coverage.
