Excellent health care is available in or near all of our program sites. Although many students have health insurance which can be used internationally, Arcadia automatically enrolls all students (except those going to New Zealand) in a health and accident insurance plan.


  • Arcadia's plan is offered through HTH Worldwide and underwritten by BCS Insurance Company, Oakbrook Terrace, IL
  • Arcadia automatically enrolls all students (except those going to New Zealand) in this plan.
  • Students attending programs in New Zealand will be provided with the New Zealand government's mandated insurance plan. Please contact the New Zealand program manager for more information.
  • The plan is effective throughout the duration of the participant's program.
  • There is no deductible per injury or illness, and the maximum medical expenses of the policy for accident or sickness is $500,000.
  • Additional information about the HTH Worldwide plan will be emailed to students upon acceptance to an Arcadia University program.
  • A copy of Arcadia's insurance certificate with HTH Worldwide is available.
  • The plan also provides for political and natural disaster evacuation services with Drum Cussac (DRUM).

The College of Global Studies engages in regular reviews of its insurance coverage to ensure that the highest standards of quality are met and that the program is easy for students and their parents both in the U.S. and overseas.

Student Information

Arcadia automatically enrolls students for HTH Worldwide insurance coverage once they’ve been accepted into their program. Once enrolled, HTH Worldwide will send an e-mail to the student with information about coverage, their individual ID number and certificate number with HTH. Students can then print an ID card and activate their "Well Prepared" personalized profile.

Parent Information

HTH Worldwide also has a website with information for parents. Once the parent has created a sign-in with their son's or daughter's e-mail address, they will have access to provider information and health and safety services. In order for a parent to gain access to any personalized information on "Well Prepared," they must request access online from their son or daughter.

Travel/Personal Property Insurance

Arcadia strongly encourages students to obtain insurance against theft and/or damage to personal effects for the period of time they will be abroad. Arcadia University does not provide insurance for possessions. (Note: students participating in programs in New Zealand will have some property coverage through the insurance mandated by the NZ government)
