GeoBlue Study Abroad (Overseas Policy)
This plan is available for short term educational or research related abroad experiences. It is also available on a voluntary basis to Brown University study abroad participants. Please note that while the on-line enrollment refers to study abroad, GeoBlue uses that terminology to apply to overseas activities related to academic or research pursuits. (You should not waive out of the Brown Student Health Insurance Plan if the GeoBlue Study Abroad Insurance Plan would be your only source of health insurance coverage).
*The online enrollment process is not necessary if you are being enrolled as part of a group or program traveling abroad. Please check with your trip leader if you have any questions.
