For course enrollment, Universidad Torcuato Di Tella requires that all of its incoming students submit proof of having health insurance valid in Argentina. This must be obtained prior to arrival in our country and must be active from the first to the last day of the study period at UTDT.
Coverage must minimally include all of the following services:
medical diagnosis and treatment
hospitalization and surgery
mental health treatment (i.e. sessions with therapists) and hospitalization
first aid and transportation to a hospital or clinic
treatment of chronic diseases
repatriation of mortal remains
The University suggests that students obtain the services provided by William Hope because this company provides a comprehensive student plan that does not have any deductibles or copayments. Also, it includes services that many other providers do not cover such as dental care, discounts on medicines, orthopedic devices, and visual aids. This plan also includes travel assistance. The 2023 monthly cost is U$D 85 if paid via credit card prior to arriving in Argentina. This amount will be reduced to about 50% if paid by cash in Argentina at the William Hope offices due to the blue exchange rate.
Should you choose not to obtain the William Hope services, the only alternatives that UTDT will accept are listed below. No exceptions will be made.
- Allianz Care Core Plus plan or higher
- April International Comfort plan or higher
- Geo Blue Standard Medical Coverage or higher
- HanseMerkur Reiseversicherung AG – Tariff premium or higher

Important! Each student is solely responsible for choosing and obtaining international health coverage that meets their needs and complies with UTDT´s requirements. In no event shall UTDT be liable for expenses, losses, or damages arising from the student´s medical coverage choice or its performance.
