This webpage provides guidance to University Travelers before they depart for University Travel.  

UMass International Travel Insurance Card

The University's International Travel Insurance coverage and emergency services are available to all University Travelers on approved International University Travel. Under this coverage, University Travelers have access to 24/7 global medical, security and emotional support assistance through our third-party provider, International SOS. 

All University Travelers should download the International Travel Insurance Travel Card and keep it with their travel documents. 

Please log into the University International Travel Insurance webpage for more details.

In addition, Travelers should contact their personal health insurance provider to understand changes in coverages while traveling abroad, and whether any additional coverage should be obtained. Additional coverage, other than that provided by the UMass International Travel Insurance, is at the Traveler's own expense.
