Insurance & Travel Abroad
Please familiarize yourself with the differences in how student insurance may be used, whether traveling abroad, on a vacation or as part of a College-sponsored study abroad program.
Oxy Study Abroad Programs
Students studying abroad are required to assure adequate access to care prior to waiving the Oxy plan by contacting the International Programs Office.
Non-Oxy Study and Travel Abroad Programs
Students seeking medical attention outside the United States will likely be asked to pay for any medical care at the time they receive it. The student must then seek reimbursement from United Healthcare within 90 days.
Frontier MEDEX: Global Emergency Medical Assistance
Students insured by this plan with United Healthcare will be covered for repatriation of remains, emergency medical expense benefit, and travel assistance services through Frontier MEDEX, the 24-hour worldwide assistance service. Please go to Gallagher to review the student insurance brochure.
Whenever possible, students should get their prescriptions filled before they go abroad. Students can fill out a "prescription override" form by visiting www.gallagherstudent.com/oxy and selecting "pharmacy program."
All benefits are subject to satisfaction of specific benefit limitations, maximums and co-pays as described in the policy. The Master Policy on file at the College contains all of the provisions, limitations, exclusions and qualifications of your insurance benefits, some of which may not be included in this handout. The Master Policy is the contract and will govern and control the payment of benefits.
