International Travel Insurance

For Work-Related Travel Outside the USA

Faculty and staff members assigned for work purposes to travel outside of the USA are required to register for the Aetna World Traveler plan. This plan provides coverage for work-related activities such as attending conferences, visiting other universities, and other official duties abroad. Click here to download the brochure below. 

For Personal Travel

Please note that the Aetna World Traveler plan is exclusively for work-related travel. If you are planning a vacation or personal trip to a destination outside the USA, you are not eligible to register for this plan.

However, as a Blue Cross Blue Shield member, you can rest easy knowing that over 90% of doctors and specialists across all 50 states accept your coverage. This ensures access to quality care even during international travel. For more information on your benefits coverage, please visit this dedicated site or contact the benefits department.
