- Health Insurance Coverage in Europe: Participants in the Prague Program must have an insurance plan that provides coverage while in Europe. If you feel your current insurance is not adequate, please research a plan that is. View the Health Insurance Requirements section.
If you don't have the mandated coverage required for participation in the program you can purchase supplemental insurance coverage through your insurance agent, or buy the EC Aetna Student Health Plan summer coverage for $455 if you are an undergrad. If you are a graduate student the cost is $676. The coverage runs from 5/1/14 - 8/14/14. In order to purchase the EC Aetna summer insurance plan, you will need a letter from your current insurance carrier stating that your insurance plan only covers you for emergency care in Europe, and not preventive care. Bills@emerson.edu will ask for this letter when you email them about signing up for the summer health insurance plan. Please email email@example.com to sign up for this coverage.
