The product – designed between two life and medical providers bnl and InterGlobal – is available to residents of Bahrain who are enrolled in full time education abroad or international students who come to Bahrain to pursue further studies. The Plan will be exclusively sold by bnl – as the licensed insurer.
The International Students Plan provides comprehensive protection against the cost of in-patient, daycare and out-patient medical treatment in the student’s country of study. The Plan also includes access to expert security advice through security specialists’ red24. Premiums for the International Students Plan are affordable by virtue of the fact that cover is provided only while in the country of study.
Students studying abroad may have grown up in countries where they have access to free medical cover. Some medical insurance plans don’t always extend to medical treatment which may be required while students are abroad but with the International Students Plan, the cost of medical treatment is covered.
bnl’s spokesperson, “It is a common requirement that students studying in a foreign country often need to provide proof of medical insurance to obtain their entry visa for the country in which they intend to study. With the International Students plan, students can not only arrange their insurance prior to departure to obtain their visa, but also can specify a future date for commencement of their policy so as to ensure that the cover commences when they arrive in the country of study.”
Spokesperson from InterGlobal, also added:
“The International Students Plan is the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain. It has been implemented in various countries around the world, providing students and their families with the comfort and peace of mind of knowing that premium health services are readily available to them without the extraordinary costs attached.”
