Health Insurance

Education Abroad Health Insurance Policy, Claim Form & Medical and Travel Security Assistance

Every participant on a CU Boulder education abroad program is automatically enrolled in Education Abroad's Travel Accident and Sickness insurance coverage, which is a limited accident and health insurance policy*. Most students are also covered under another insurance policy through their on-site provider (SAS, ISA, SIT, CIEE, etc.), host country or host university. That insurance usually applies first in case of incidents and the Education Abroad insurance serves as a secondary policy.

Since insurance coverage is provided while you are on your program abroad, you may be thinking about dropping your current coverage. We recommend that you maintain Affordable Care Act-compliant health insurance at all times (even during your time out of the country). You should contact your insurance provider with any questions about your specific policy. Education Abroad does not sell insurance or in any way guarantee payment of benefits. Do not make any assumptions about your coverage and maintain coverage at all times while you are in the U.S., before, during, and after your program.

For more details, please read the Accident & Health Insurance section in the CU Boulder Education Abroad Handbook.

To use the Education Abroad insurance, after consulting with on-site staff, you may call International SOS (+1-215-942-8478) for support.
