- Repatriation of remains in amount of $7,500
- Expenses associated with medical evacuation in amount of $10,000

Many exchange students receive health insurance through their home country. Any exchange student who is not covered by a qualified plan from one’s own country will need to enroll in Augsburg’s international student health insurance plan through HTH Worldwide.
