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 upon returning to the United States.
Scholastic Emergency Services: 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 Scholastic Emergency Services (SES), 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. Normally benefits are subject to supply limits (up to 31 days), however students can get a "travel override" for up to a six-month supply. Present your prescription, proof of travel and your United Health Allies ID cards to a Medco pharmacy. If you do not use a network pharmacy, you will be responsible for paying the full cost for the prescription.
