International Medical and Accident Insurance

CSB/SJU policy requires students to maintain enrollment in their primary health coverage plan during their time abroad. In addition to their primary U.S. health insurance plan, the Center for Global Education will automatically enroll study abroad students in comprehensive international medical and accident insurance provided by Zurich Insurance Company.  This insurance policy provides tele-med medical & mental health services, along with coverage for in-country medical care. In addition, this insurance covers emergency medical evacuation, natural disaster and political unrest evacuation, and repatriation of remains. This insurance goes above and beyond U.S. healthcare coverage.  The cost of the international travel insurance is determined by the length of the program and will be incorporated into the overall cost of the program. For more details regarding the coverage of the plan, please view the policy brochure.


This international insurance policy will only cover students during the official program dates.  If students plan to travel after their study abroad program, we encourage them to secure additional international health insurance coverage for any leisure travel outside the official program dates.  If students wish to purchase additional insurance coverage, they can select a policy of their choice.  One option is to visit Gallagher’s website to explore leisure travel extension insurance or e-mail [email protected] to learn more about additional coverage.
