How do I choose student insurance for Mexico?

Can I be covered by social security in Mexico as a foreign student?

Mexico’s social security system, comprising the IMSS (Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social) and the ISSSTE (Instituto de Seguridad y Servicios Sociales de los Trabajadores del Estado), is mainly aimed at Mexican salaried workers and resident foreigners. As a foreign student in Mexico, you will not be covered by IMSS or ISSSTE. In addition, the Mexican public health system can be characterized by long waiting times for medical treatment, and some medical conditions are not covered.
As an international student, you’ll have no choice but to take out private health insurance tailored to your situation. Get a free quote for your international student insurance today!

How much does international student insurance cost in Mexico?

Depending on the benefits you select, your age and the length of your stay, you’ll have several options to choose from. You can choose between basic and comprehensive coverage. Note that healthcare costs in Mexico are on the rise, partly due to our proximity to certain countries, particularly the United States. This increase underlines the importance of choosing comprehensive health insurance. Opting for insurance from a Mexican insurer could cost you twice as much.

How can I be insured as a student in Mexico?

To obtain insurance as a student in Mexico, you have a few options to consider. First of all, you can check whether your Mexican university offers student health insurance. However, you should be aware that this option does not usually cover all your healthcare costs, especially outside your study institution, where you may need them most.
A more comprehensive and secure alternative would be to take out international student health insurance. The latter offers appropriate medical coverage not only in Mexico, but also during your travels abroad, which is particularly advantageous for international students. It covers all your medical expenses and repatriation if necessary. Before making a decision, ask for a quote for your international student insurance, so that you can fully understand the cover offered and choose the option that best suits your needs and budget.
