International Student Insurance


Hi, I'm coming with my wife to study in UCLA, post grad program. I'm from Belarus, she's from Vietnam. Insurance is mandatory, but UCLA's prices are just incredible. I found 370 and 300$ price for both per semester(3 months), but I don't know if it's applicable with UCLA, they have a lot of restrictions(in attachment). Could u provide me with this info? The plan must: 1. Have no per-medical or per-mental health/substance use disorder condition maximum benefit limits 2. Cover services related to suicidal conditions, including attempted suicide or suicidal thoughts 3. Cover medical services for injury from participation in all types of recreational activities or amateur sports 4. Have no pre-existing condition exclusion or limitation; if the plan has a pre-existing condition waiting period, that period has expired 5. Have no lifetime maximums on benefits 6. Have a complete master policy written in standard English with benefits expressed in U.S. dollars 7. Have a claims payment office with an address and phone number in the United States 8. Pay at least $50,000 annually for medical evacuation 9. Pay at least $25,000 for repatriation of remains


There will be no plans that we can offer you to meet this criteria. 

You would need to purchase from your University to be compliant.
