Please inquire with CIEE to confirm exact dates of coverage for your program. A complete description of the group sickness, accident, and travel insurance policy, including information on filing a claim, is provided with the visa application paperwork.

The iNext group sickness, accident, and travel insurance policy is designed as an additional or supplemental policy only. The policy does not include coverage for routine physical or dental examinations, pre-existing conditions, or preventative medicine. Participants are not covered for injuries resulting from acts of war or other political unrest such as riots and demonstrations.

If you are covered by a personal insurance plan, CIEE recommends that you continue this coverage while abroad. Prior to departure, you should contact your current insurance carrier concerning coverage for accidents, illnesses, and liability cases that occur outside the United States. Check your policy's limitations before making any assumptions about coverage. Most U.S. based insurance companies will not cover property lost or stolen overseas. It is important that you read all policy information carefully and note exactly what coverage is provided; note items that are excluded from coverage. CIEE strongly recommends that coverage, beyond that which is provided as part of the program, is secured and understood by the participant before departure.
