Cultural Insurance Services International

Postby MistyAnn » Mon, 01 Nov 2010 07:10:02 -0500

My son is going to a university in Sweden in January for 6 months and we are trying to check all the boxes for what a student needs when attending university in another country. I am considering CISI (Cultural Insurance Services International) for an international short term health insurance policy and wondered if anyone has an opinion about this company?

I am also going to purchase an Air Rescue Card from this company: http://www.travelassistnetwork.com/student.aspx and ask the same question if there is an opinion on this company?

There are so many companies on the web and not many places to find out if they are legit or not.

One more question: What is the best way to handle money over there - should he open a bank account over there or just use credit cards or travelers checks?

Thank you for any advice!

As compared to a regular insurance plan, vision insurance is really quite cheap and can give you a lot of benefits if you suffer from poor eye sight, or there is a history of eye related problems in your family. You can either get vision insurance as a standalone plan, or you can get it as an add-on to your regular insurance plan. In case of the latter, you will have to pay a small fee in addition to your regular costs.pool supply

I think you are choosing the right insurance plan by selecting vision. They really give us an affordable yet qualitative insurance.

Hi Everyone,

Coverage for vision is typically excluded from most individual international plans, as it drives the cost of the premium up, making it expensive. However, these plans will still provide coverage in the case of an accident or injury to the eye.

Coverage for routine eye exams and contact lenses/glasses can be found with annual renewable, major medical plans. Major medical plans are usually more comprehensive since you're meant to be covered on a long-term basis.

You can read more about the differences of short and long term coverage at this link:
