As we continue to navigate the complexity of international travel in the midst of COVID-19, we recognize there are many uncertainties our students will be faced with. To help alleviate your concern and to provide our students and their families with options, CCSA offers this resource page with useful information for both our students and those who support students through the study abroad process. This resource page provides information about what to look for when researching this type of insurance so you can determine what is best for you.

All CCSA programs include international health insurance along with limited travel coverage. The travel portion covers things such as travel delays and cancellations (e.g., due to illness). It is in effect only outside the United States and during the on-site portion of the course and travel days.

A popular option for peace of mind is “cancel for any reason” (CFAR) insurance, which enables an individual to be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses paid before the program start date. This tends to be individual insurance and cannot be offered directly through CCSA.

Each plan is different but common elements include:

  • Window of time to purchase the CFAR after you make a payment for your program.
  • The amount that can be reimbursed.
  • The expenses that can be claimed.
  • Claim process and proof of expense.
  • Window of time you have to make a claim.
