Here To Help
Student health insurance is crucial to make your trip safe, which is why we provide you with a first class coverage plan. We also give you a variety of health and safety information and tips before you leave and when you arrive at orientation. Remember, we know what it’s like to be away from home, and know that you don’t have to be sick to feel bad—so we’re here to help you through any homesickness or mental blues you might be having throughout the time in your host country. Don’t be shy, just talk to your friendly program director.
Taking Care of Your Health
Feeling sick and need a doctor?
Let your program director know! He or she will assess how urgent your situation is and even come along to the doctor if you like. You can also call the number provided by StuCard with any medical questions toll free 24/7!
Having an emergency?
At orientation, we’ll review all topics of health and safety, including emergency numbers and procedures. Be sure to check out your LCA student handbook before your departure. Most housing is equipped with a phone, making it easy to dial your program director 24/7, even if you don’t have a cell phone while abroad.
Find insurance paperwork daunting?
Remember, the StuCard provides you with a toll free emergency phone number. You can speak to a professional that will provide assistance any time of day. Keep in mind that you’ll also have LCA on hand to help with your paperwork—just ask!
Specific medical needs or health concerns?
When you’ve been accepted, we’ll ask you to complete a detailed medical form. On this form, you can give us all the information we’ll need to make sure your stay abroad is comfortable and well prepared from a medical standpoint.
Need specific medication?
If you know you’ll be on your usual medication(s) abroad, visit your doctor before you leave to see if he or she can prescribe you extra medicine to take along. To make sure you don’t have problems at the border or customs, be sure to take a copy of your prescription or a doctor’s note with you. In addition, it’s wise to ask your doctor what the generic name of your medication is in case you need to stock up while in your host country.
Food allergies or a particular dietary restriction?
Keep your food preferences and allergies in mind when you’re thinking about where to live. If you’ve got a lot of restrictions, it might be best to live somewhere where you can make your own meals. For LCA planned meals, such as the welcome and farewell dinners, make sure your program director is aware, so we can try our best to meet your needs! The same goes for our vegan and vegetarian friends out there as well.
