Health and Safety/Emergencies Abroad
International Health Insurance
The Study Abroad Office enrolls all students in a comprehensive international health insurance policy through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). This is a requirement and currently costs $250 per semester (less for short-term programs). Although some students may be doubly-covered by insurance in countries that require students to enroll in country-wide insurance (such as France, Germany, Japan, Australia, etc.), please note that this health insurance requirement cannot be waived.
Current AY 2018-2019 Policy available for download:
Prior to the official program start date, students can access their insurance card, insurance policy, confirmation of coverage, claim forms, and other resources at the CISI site. Students should be able to access the insurance card and information about how to make a claim and use the insurance through the CISI website. To begin, create an account from the home page (top right - “Login to myCISI") to access the policy, card, and forms.
If students find themselves in an emergency situation overseas, they follow the emergency instructions on their insurance card (call 1-312-935-1703 collect from outside the US or email firstname.lastname@example.org). All students have the same emergency phone number to call.
In addition, myCISI apps are available for both iPhone and Android.
