Health Insurance

UTDT requires that all exchange students are covered by an Argentine health insurance that must be obtained prior to arrival in Argentina and must be valid from the first to the last day of the semester. It must include medical diagnosis and treatment, preventive medicine, hospitalization and surgery, mental health treatment, dental care, first aid and transportation to a hospital or clinic, medical equipment and appliances, treatment of chronic diseases, paramedical services, medical evacuation and repatriation of mortal remains, and Covid-19 coverage.

Exchange students and free movers should buy the health insurance after receiving their acceptance email and before their arrival in Argentina, and will need to submit proof of insurance for enrollment by the first week of the semester.

The University suggests the plan provided by William Hope, because it does not have any deductibles or copayments, and all medical costs are included in the monthly fee. The monthly cost for 2022 is U$D 85. For details on the coverage, please download the Plan Description. For questions about the plan, please contact Fernando Ceccardi: obtain this insurance, please complete this form after being accepted. 

Other suggested providers are CEMICOSDESwiss MedicalGalenoMedicus and any other local insurance that covers all the requirements listed above.

Students with pre-existing conditions should indicate this in their applications and contact us prior to arrival to discuss their medical needs and insurance coverage. 

Exchange students who fail to show proof of adequate health insurance by the first week of classes will not be allowed to enroll at the University.
