How to File a Claim

In the event you require medical attention while abroad, under most circumstances you will pay for any medical expenses out-of-pocket and submit a claim form directly to the insurance provider for reimbursement. If for any reason you are not able to pay for the medical attention received our onsite staff can pay the medical expenses on your behalf. You must reimburse them before your program end date. To file a claim, please submit the original, itemized receipts along with a claim form. Claim instructions are found in the Sol Student Zone. To file a claim, you will need your full name, SSN and passport information. Claims must be filed within 60 days date of your policy end date. This insurance policy does contain pre-notification requirements. You need to notify the insurance provider in advance (within 48 hours for emergencies) for any hospitalizations or surgeries as well as other items listed on your identification card or in the policy description.

Using your own Medical Insurance Policy

Often students already have very comprehensive international medical insurance through their primary provider or through their home university. It is not uncommon that the home university requires their students to use their international medical insurance plan. To verify your coverage, first call your insurance provider and ask if you are covered internationally and in what capacity. Provide your insurance company the exact dates of the program in which you are enrolled. If international coverage is provied, get the details from your insurance provider in the event you need to go to the doctor while abroad. Once you have this information, then also ask your study abroad office what their policies are for international medical insurance while abroad.

Additional Days of Insurance Coverage Abroad

If you plan to extend your time abroad, outside of your official program dates, and would like international medical insurance coverage for those additional days, please contact us. We can extend your policy dates at an additional cost per day. This amount will be added to your program invoice.
