Life in the United States: Insurance
Have you decided to travel or stay up to 30 days longer in the US after your program end date?
If so, you must have medical insurance coverage for this period. Insurance is required if you do not select the first available departure date after your program end date or if you do not already have the Travel & Sports insurance package or comprehensive insurance coverage, and if you cannot provide proof of other insurance coverage. Au Pair in America can provide you with an extension of your current Insurance Plan at a minimal cost.
The extra month of insurance coverage will extend all your current benefits: Medical Coverage for each accident or illness; Team Assist Emergency Medical Coverage; and the Personal Liability Benefit. (Please note: Some limitations and exclusions apply. Refer to your Plan of Insurance summary for further information.)
Additional benefits of extending coverage:
- Should you have an accident during your travels, your Emergency Medical Coverage will remain in effect. This coverage will provide for medical evacuation to the nearest appropriate facility and medically necessary repatriation to your home country. (See Plan of Insurance brochure for further details of coverage.)
- If you do not purchase this coverage and suffer an illness or injury, no coverage will be provided to you. This is against program regulations. You must have insurance coverage for your travel month. We will not purchase a return flight for you without insurance coverage for your travel month.
- For a minimal cost, you can have the peace of mind that in the event of an accident or illness, you will be covered.
We will provide this coverage at a cost of $150.
