HDFC Life International has launched a comprehensive US Dollar Student Health Insurance Plan, under the plan name ‘Global Student Health Care’. The plan is designed for students who are presently pursuing higher education abroad or aspire to pursue higher international education. It is a comprehensive plan that offers a host of benefits and features designed to address diverse healthcare needs and potential health contingencies.
The Global Student Health Care plan offers comprehensive coverage, allowing worldwide access to top-notch medical facilities outside the home country, with an extensive network of hospitals, clinics, doctors and professionals.
The plan enables customers to access top private medical facilities and services while avoiding the conventional hassle of going through lengthy appointment wait times, as seen in various countries. Enhancing the usefulness of this plan is its cashless facility that makes the claims process convenient for the student.

The Global Student Health Care plan encompasses a spectrum of medical needs, from routine check-ups to unforeseen emergencies. The plan provides default dental coverage and also covers home doctor visits, alternate medicine, and much more. In response to the escalating healthcare costs in popular student destinations such as UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Australia, etc., this plan emerges as an ideal solution for Indian students abroad.
