The Student Insurance Program offers 2 types of insurance solutions for covering illness and healthcare costs
SIP complement to mutual health care cover: If you already have a basic mutual healthcare cover (or if you are entitled to a European Health Insurance Card when visiting countries in the European Economic Area and Switzerland), the SIP Complement option will top up your medical costs in full for a covered accident/illness after the allowance refunded to you by your mutual healthcare fund. Please verify if your primary cover effectively offers reimbursement in your country of destination.
SIP Integral : If you are not a member of a mutual healthcare fund (if you don’t have a basic mutual healthcare cover), then you need the SIP Integral option. Now, if you are a member of a mutual healthcare fund or if you have a basic mutual healthcare cover, please verify if your primary cover effectively offers reimbursement in your country of destination. If not, you will need the SIP Integral option. With SIP Integral option, all the treatment costs for a covered accident/ illness will be refunded to you in full from the first euro, with no maximum amount (hospital stay in a common room).
Whatever the insurance solution you go for, all the cover guarantees in your insurance package remain totally intact.
SIP will reimburse your medical expenses with no maximum amount and without deductible.
