It is essential for students to have proof of medical insurance cover recognized in China, while applying for a study permit. China Health Insurance has extensive experience in providing international health insurance plans to expatriates residing in China.
In China the cost of high quality healthcare services are comparable to the USA. In many cases, bearing medical expenses by oneself can be risky and expensive. Hence, it becomes important to guard against the burden of exorbitant medical bills.
It is advisable that international students make the necessary financial arrangements for the medical aid cover, prior to coming to China. Should the student rely on sponsorship, he/she should ensure that the sponsor is informed off this requirement at the onset of the sponsorship or an admission offer from an institution. Most institutions do not accept a letter from the sponsor in lieu of payment. Payment for the required medical aid cover fee is usually made directly to the medical aid Company, exclusive of the tuition fees.
