A. International Health Insurance and International SOS Emergency Assistance Program

Tulane University United Healthcare

Tulane University’s United Healthcare (UHC) student health insurance provides coverage for students travelling abroad and claims are reimbursed at the Preferred Provider Level.  Under this insurance program students pay the upfront cost for visits to health providers and then apply for reimbursement.

GeoBlue Insurance

Tulane University’s Office of Insurance and Risk Management suggests GeoBlue insurance for those travelling abroad with the Payson Summer Institute program.  GeoBlue provides coverage through a network of health providers.  The program offers weekly coverage to suit travel needs. Upfront costs for visits to GeoBlue network health providers are covered by this plan and do not require reimbursement.  Network health providers can be found through m-passport once enrolled in the program. 

International SOS Emergency Assistance Program

All Tulane University students are enrolled in International SOS Emergency Assistance Program but must register to create a new ID for the emergency and travel locator.  This is to help emergency evacuation personnel locate and organize the evacuation of individuals during emergencies abroad.

Further information regarding insurance coverage can be found at Tulane University’s Office of Insurance and Risk Management Webpage.
