Long Stay Travel Insurance
PASS4Soccer have teamed up with two Long Stay Travel Insurance (LSTI) supplies in the UK to make sure our clients are adequately covered while in the USA.
The University you attend will ultimately decide what type of cover is needed. If the university cover you for any soccer related injuries while training or playing, Option 1 should provide the cover you need. If the University require you to have your own cover for sports related injuries, you may wish to look at Option 2.
Please note, the two options described below are offered by different companies. Please speak to each company about the policy they offer.
Quality cover with some unique features is available to PASS4 clients, families and friends along with excellent service relevant for studying in the USA and elsewhere to the independent traveller, gap-year travel, back packing, working abroad and for all EU residents.
The PASS4soccer package is essential as it has the flexibility of providing cover off-campus and will complement the Health Insurance offered by individual Universities.
A major plus is the advantage of greater repatriation benefits and parent visits if hospitalised, cover if you are already abroad and annual renewals. Look carefully at the costs; a student departing in August and return during May (10 Months) can be efficiently covered for as little as £216.
The difference between Personal Health Insurance (PHI) promoted and sold by US education institutions and LSTI is that insurance underwriters will decide based on various factors whether treatment will take place in the USA or in the case of serious injury repatriation back to the UK may be necessary.
Please note however that this travel and long stay study abroad insurance cover does not provide any benefits for private health care.
It should be noted that once you are Repatriated to your Country of Normal Residence, there is NO cover for any ongoing Medical Expenses that are incurred in your Home Country.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Long Stay Travel Insurance (LSTI) does not cover students while playing/training for their university or college soccer team. Universities and colleges should have their own special athletic cover for their sports teams and student athletes. A student must check with their university or college prior to purchase of the insurance that they have a policy in place to cover you while you are playing for their team.
STUDY ABROAD COVER
For under 25’s only, a discounted premium, for official study and work experience abroad. Applicable to scholarships in the USA where you must intend returning back to the UK during academic years.
