Health Insurance

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

All students who participate in an education abroad program sponsored by CU Boulder Education Abroad are automatically enrolled in the Travel Assistance and Travel Accident and Sickness insurance.* We recommend that you maintain personal health insurance at all times (even during your time out of the country). For more details, please read the Accident & Health Insurance section in the CU Boulder Education Abroad Handbook.

To use the insurance coverage, after consulting with on-site staff, students, assistants, faculty and staff, may call  International SOS (+1-215-942-8478) for support. International SOS can advise you on your medical or security questions. If costs are incurred, International SOS will work with CU Boulder Education Abroad's insurance company** to cover the expenses.
