Student Health & Wellness
CEA believes the health and wellness of students during their time abroad has a measurable impact on their cultural adaption, as well as their academic success. Students who are struggling with their health may miss class, be less involved in the local community, and miss out on having a positive cultural experience because they simply are not feeling good.
The CEA Health & Wellness Profile is a required task for students to complete through their MyCEA Account. They must also self-report their medical conditions, medications, allergies, dietary preferences, and request special accommodations for the classroom, housing, or mental health.
In recognizing the holistic nature of the student experience, CEA supports all aspects of student development through the lens of physical, emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual, and occupational wellness. CEA excursions, academic activities, student engagement events, and office hours are tools CEA onsite staff use to foster student connectivity and understanding about personal wellness.
CEA onsite staff will refer students to local caregivers according to a student’s need or preference. CEA partners with Cultural Insurance Services International, a healthcare services provider with many years of experience, to provide coverage for a student’s emerging health needs during their CEA program. This plan enables a student to seek care at any medical provider with no co-payment, or a low co-payment ($50 Barcelona), and then seek reimbursement for those out-of-pocket healthcare and pharmacy costs. In case of serious injury or illness requiring hospitalization, care is coordinated with a guarantee of payment so no out of pocket expenses are necessary for the student experiencing the healthcare emergency. CISI/CEA student health insurance covers a student from the program start date till the end date. Coverages include:
- Medical Care: Up to $500,000 (London)/$250,000 (other CEA locations)
- Mental Illness: $2,500 Outpatient/$25,000 In-patient
- Dental Emergency: $500 pain relief/$250,000 max per occurrence
- Accidental Death & Dismemberment: $10,000
- Personal Liability: $100,000 max per occurrence
- Medical Evacuation: $250,000 max per occurrence
