International private medical insurer InterGlobal has launched two new international private medical insurance (PMI) plans, designed to provide comprehensive protection to students studying abroad from under £40 a month.
The new International Students Plans are available either as individual or group schemes. They provide comprehensive protection against the cost of inpatient, daycare and outpatient medical treatment in the country where the student is studying. The standard plan also provides access to emergency dental treatment, family assistance, emergency medical evacuation and red24 security assistance, while the International Students Plus plan additionally provides maternity care, cover against loss of tuition fees and coverage for personal belongings.
Stephen Hartigan of InterGlobal says, “We have designed these plans to meet the needs of students studying abroad, comprehensive cover at a very reasonable cost. As the vast majority of students only study in a single overseas country we have limited the cost by simply providing protection in the country where they are studying. Both plans provide an excellent level of PMI protection to students and also include access to expert security advice through security specialist red24. We believe these new single country student plans will appeal to parents whose children are studying abroad for the first time. They are also suitable for more mature students as well, with cover available up to the age of 35 for students and their dependants.”
