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 policyat no cost to them.  If you are faced with the need to obtain medical care outside of the United States, be sure to communicate with International SOS using the phone numbers on the ID card. They will guide you to a medical provider within the plan so you will not incur any out of pocket expenses such as copays or deductibles.

This accident and sickness insurance policy is not a replacement for your required health insurance. It is a supplimental policy provided free of charge to you.

Individuals can enroll and pay online. This coverage is optional, to reduce out of pocket expenses associated with your private health insurance.
