Health Insurance

Health Insurance Requirement

In order to comply with the guidelines established for Study Abroad programs, Northwest requires that all Study Abroad participants verify their enrollment in an ample health insurance policy that will provide them with comprehensive coverage while they are abroad that is equal to or greater than the coverage provided by the HTH Worldwide Blanket Student Accident and Sickness Policy.

Whether students are enrolled in the Northwest Missouri State University Student Health Plan, a plan through a parent's employer, or another type of plan, it is essential to be familiar with the existing coverage and the procedures required while overseas. Most domestic health insurance policy may not cover the insurer while overseas, as many policies have strict coverage limitations, or only cover medical emergencies abroad

If students find that they do not have insurance that will provide them with coverage abroad that is equal to or greater than the HTH Worldwide Sickness and Accident Policy, they must agree in writing to purchase the HTH Worldwide Blanket Sickness and Accident policy for Study Abroad.
