International Health Insurance

Students Participating in Texas State Faculty-led and Exchange Programs
If you are participating in a Texas State Faculty-led Study Abroad Program or in a Texas State Exchange Program, you have health insurance and travel assistance coverage through HTH Worldwide (HTH) and International SOS (ISOS). Please refer to the Health and Safety Abroad page for more information on this coverage. Please note that policy coverage from these companies only includes the dates within your program period; if you choose to travel on your own before or after your program period, you will not be covered. Texas State Study Abroad recommends that you purchase health coverage for the additional time abroad; refer to the following section for information on purchasing additional coverage.

Students Participating in Other Study Abroad Programs or Independent Travel
It is important to realize that most U.S. insurance coverage is not recognized abroad. Therefore, Texas State Study Abroad strongly recommends that you acquire sufficient health and accident insurance for the entire period of your trip. Ask your study abroad program provider if you will have insurance coverage while participating in the program; if so, request a detailed description of this policy. The following insurance companies provide health insurance to study abroad students (these options are presented as a reference, and it is not the intention of Texas State Study Abroad to recommend any of these companies):


Travelex Insurance Services, 800.228.9792

International Student Identity Card (ISIC)

Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI)
