LeadAbroad takes many preventative steps to keep participants safe and healthy on our programs. In addition, we know unavoidable medical issues may arise while abroad and therefore we include an international medical insurance policy in the program fee. We also strongly encourage participants to maintain comprehensive health insurance while abroad. This is particularly important for pre-existing conditions but is also beneficial if the participant has an injury or illness while abroad and requires further treatment upon return home.
For a description of the coverage included in the policy, please review the policy below:
As with all insurance policies, there are standard deductibles and certain exclusions to the coverage which are listed in the Description of Coverage. It is important for students to read and understand the policy coverage and exclusions prior to traveling abroad.
If you incur medical expenses during your time abroad with LeadAbroad and would like to file a claim for reimbursement after returning home, please complete the claim form at the end of the document linked above.
