Students Participating in Non-Affiliated Programs or Independent Travel
It is important to realize that most U.S. insurance coverage is not recognized abroad. Therefore, Texas State Education Abroad strongly recommends that you acquire sufficient health and accident insurance for the entire period of your trip. Ask your education abroad program provider if you will have insurance coverage while participating in the program; if so, request a detailed description of this policy. The following insurance companies provide health insurance to education abroad students (these options are presented as a reference, and it is not the intention of Texas State Education Abroad to recommend any of these companies):
Betins International Health and Travel Insurance
Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI)
