The Cigna Global policy covers participants for unexpected injuries and illness that may occur while studying or traveling outside their country of residence.
Using Your Own Medical Insurance Policy
Often families prefer to use their existing insurance for overseas coverage. Before making that decision we ask that you call your provider to confirm 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 decide to use your existing policy you will need to get the details from your insurance provider and provide a copy to us.
Additional Days of Insurance Coverage
If you plan to extend your time abroad outside of your official Arcos Journeys Abroad 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.
