Medical Insurance

Comprehensive international medical insurance is included for all students enrolled in an Arcos Journeys Abroad program. Coverage is provided through International Student Insurance. The policy covers qualified medical expenses during your official program dates.

The policy includes:

  • Medical Expenses Benefits

  • Accidental Death Coverage

  • Emergency Medical Evacuation

  • Repatriation of Remains Benefits

  • Trip Interruption Benefit

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.


The health insurance plan covers participants if they were to contract COVID-19 while on their program.

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.
