View Full Version : Study Abroad

08-12-09, 06:00 PM
Hello I am in the midst of preparations to study abroad in the UK for a year and am having a hard time figuring out just exactly how I will be getting my medication while over there. I doubt my family Health Insurance will cover costs while living abroad so I am at a bit of a loss. My doctor mentioned that he thought one of his clients was having their medication shipped over by a pharmacy but that sounds a bit outlandish/illegal. Can anyone give me some insight here?

I'll be interested in the answers that you get because I have a son that will probably face the same problem.

Won't your doctor and family work with you on getting your medication to you? I don't think your health insurance cares that you are overseas if you get the meds in the States and have them sent to you.
