For those who don’t have health insurance…
We’ve also been getting a few questions about health insurance so we are going to pass on all our knowledge on this topic!
First of all, YOU MUST have health insurance as soon as you step on campus; from September 25 (arrival day!) until December 31 (or if you can only get a 3 month package, December 25th will work too, we will definitely leave before Christmas).
For outreach, the campus will get health insurance that is generally with a company called Talent Trust so that we are covered all over the world! This WILL be included in the outreach fees. It will cover you for all of outreach AND for debrief week when you’re back in Kona.
A great place to start to look for insurance would be to google missionary health insurance (we cannot recommend any specific insurance company due to liability issues) or look at local insurance companies and ask for estimates. Don’t stress about it, it won’t be a huge extra cost but again it is REQUIRED.
FOR INTERNATIONALS: You will most likely have health insurance covered in your travel insurance, so just make sure that it is.
Let us know if still have any questions,
Love from the application office CommTrans Staff!
