It is the responsibility of the au pair to familiarize themselves with the policy coverage and exclusions.

What doctors can I see?
Although you can see any doctor, AVI-International/SelectCare Worldwide highly recommends that au pairs go to doctors that have a relationship with AVI-International/SelectCare Worldwide. These doctors will usually bill the insurance company for services on behalf of the au pair.

Your costs are also likely to be higher.
