Long Stay Travel Insurance
PASS4Soccer have teamed up with two Long Stay Travel Insurance (LSTI) suppliers in the UK to make sure our clients are properly protected while in the USA.
The University you attend will ultimately cover you for any soccer related injuries while training or playing, Option 1 should provide the cover you need. If the University requires 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 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 campuses.
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 approximately £257.
The difference between Personal Health Insurance (PHI) promoted and sold by US education institutions and LSTI is that UK 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.
You can view and purchase the STUDY ABROAD scheme via our website link.
Health Insurance will be provided by your University/College in the USA but may vary in cover and benefits accordingly. Please ensure you check this out. The STUDY ABROAD scheme will supplement and provide the additional flexibility that you will need for your travels and includes £10,000,000 emergency medical, £5,000 cancellation/curtailment and £2,000 personal possessions cover.
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.
