Insurance Packages

The freedom to relax and enjoy life as an Au Pair in America, worry free!

Keeping safe, legal and protected is important during your au pair year. You do not want to worry about medical bills during the best year of your life! Healthcare in the United States is expensive and the medical system may be very different from that which you are used to at home. Therefore, it is important that you understand the Insurance Plan and the options offered by Au Pair in America.

To ensure that you start your experience off safe and protected, we ensure that all our au pairs are automatically covered by our Basic Insurance Plan. You then have the option to upgrade your Basic Insurance Plan or add additional packages for when you go travelling during your additional travel month or if you are planning on playing any type of sport whilst in the USA.

Our range of Insurance Packages ensures that you are well protected and covered in case of any emergencies. Our Insurance Packages are offered by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI), the leading provider of study abroad and international student insurance coverage. CISI is part of AIFS family and since 1992, we have insured over 1 million international students and cultural exchange participants worldwide. Our relationships with financially stable insurance carriers permit us to provide you with wide-ranging coverage you require.

Your local Au Pair in America interviewer will be able to explain the packages in detail and provide you with full information. It is important that you understand your options to make sure that you have a safe and worry free time in the USA.
