Medical insurance is offered to all international students at CEDEI, and although we do not discourage purchasing additional coverage, it is not necessary. Additionally, group coverage may be provided by your University of College for some programs , while for others, students should purchase an optional, voluntary plan. Should you need medical attention in Ecuador, the bill must be paid on-site, and a you will be reimbursed a certain percentage of the costs at a later date. If you have any questions regarding CEDEI's insurance policy, please contact the International Department.
