Housing Preferences | Preferencias de alojamiento
You will be living with a señora, frequently single, though not always. If single, she is likely to be divorced or a widow. Some of the host families include young children, older children, or no children at all; some have pets, while others do not; some host just one student, and others host several. Many families would like you to integrate into family life, while others accept you more as a boarder, but still as a member of the household.
Please respond honestly to the following items. Every effort will be made to meet as many of your preferences as possible, but please understand that not all preferences can be met. Your adjustment to this new experience will involve some changes of habit and/or diet. Try to remember that a student who is flexible stands a better chance of being content in the homestay.

(Health, Accident, Medical, Hospital)
All program participants MUST be insured. This is for your own protection. If you do no currently have insurance, you must purchase, you must purchase adequate coverage beyond that provided by the International Student Identity Card (ISIC). Inexpensive insurance plans are available on a short-term basis.
You are required to have medical insurance for your entire time abroad. Be aware that most insurance policies in the U.S. are of the refundable variety; that is, you pay the doctor and /or hospital oversees, save the receipts, and return these to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please insure that you have extra cash on hand or a credit card for medical emergencies. If possible, take along your insurance company’s claim forms. Consider some supplementary emergency medical coverage if your insurance policy does not include medical evacuation and repatriation benefits.
My insurance Carrier has certified to me that the following polity, which is currently in force, will cover me while out of the country.
