Repatriation insurance

Recommended Posts

What are you guys doing about insuring yourself to get home in the event of illness?

My school insurance covers my expenses while I'm at uni in teh US, but if I have an accident or get so sick I can't study anymore I'd like to know that my paren't won't be up for a $50,000 bill to get me home to our beloved universal healthcare system safely.

I've been looking for policies that just cover this, with no luck.

Any ideas? I'm Australian.

I have never heard of this type of insurance but perhaps you could look for a personal insurance rather than a medical plan that would cover these types of expenses? Or, possibly your parents could get some kind of umbrella policy in Australia that would cover you in such an eventuality? Hope it works out and hope you never need the insurance!
