International health insurance provides medical coverage for the duration of travel, medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, and travel assistance.




JWU uses two different international health insurance carriers, GeoBlue and AIG/Chartis.

Travelers choose the type of insurance based on their status and purpose:

1. Students & Faculty/Staff Leaders

For students on JWU-sponsored programs (including internships) and JWU faculty/staff members leading or accompanying students.

Fee: There is a fee attached to GeoBlue.

Budget: In most cases, the JWU-sponsoring program will be expected to cover these expenses, and travel budgets should be built accordingly.




2. Other JWU Business

For faculty and staff traveling on other university business, who are not accompanying students.

Fee: There is no fee associated with AIG/Chartis.

Coverage: Travelers are automatically covered.
