All students are enrolled in the HTH worldwide health plan. Some program provider such as CIEE or IFSA-Butler may provide an additional health insurance for the duration of their study abroad program. The Global Education Office recommends that students also retain at least one policy of domestic health care coverage in addition to the international coverage for the same duration. This will insure that students are covered from the moment they enter the United States in the event that they need to return before a program's end.
We recommend that all students get standard check-up exams prior to studying abroad. This includes physicals, dental and vision check ups. Be sure to schedule these appointments well ahead of your departure in case there is a need for follow-up (such as a cavity that needs to be filled).
