Health Insurance-Study Abroad - Carnegie Mellon University

Health Insurance

Below are some companies offering health and travel insurance options for student purchase.   Feel free to compare, though always first check with your current health insurance provider to confirm and understand the coverage they offer.  Questions to ask -

1. Do I have coverage for the country(ies) to which I am traveling?
2. What is the process if I need to see a doctor abroad?
3. What is the process if I go to a hospital abroad?
4. How is payment/reimbursement handled?

Remember, health insurance and travel insurance are very different.  We require both for CMU students studying abroad.  Visit Travel Insurance Review's website, for some helpful guidance.
