Brown University Study/Travel Abroad Insurance (Outbound Travelers - Traveling Overseas)
Effective July 1, 2018, Brown University students, faculty and staff traveling abroad on behalf of Brown University (i.e. study abroad, research or business travel) are automatically enrolled in a blanket study/travel abroad accident and sickness insurance policy. If you need travel, medical, or security assistance or have any questions, please contact International SOS 24/7 Assistance using the phone numbers on the ID card.
To obtain a verification of coverage letter for this policy, please email us at email@example.com.
Leisure Travel Abroad Insurance
If you plan to include personal time (vacation, visiting family, non-Brown related travel, etc.) pre-trip or post- trip, you might want to consider purchasing supplemental coverage to your private health insurance to reduce co-pays, out of network expenses, etc. Gallagher partners with Seven Corners, Inc, who offers all types of personal travel insurance. Individuals can enroll and pay online. https://www.gallagherstudent.com/products/leisure-travel-insurance/. This coverage is optional, to reduce out of pocket expenses associated with your private health insurance. We suggest you contact your health insurer prior to traveling abroad, to see what coverage you have available while you are outside of the country.
