Health Insurance Abroad
University of Michigan International Travel Policy
U-M students, faculty and staff traveling abroad for personal/leisure reasons are strongly encouraged to register their trip in the Travel Registry and to purchase the Personal/Leisure health insurance plan.
See University Health Service Travel Insurance Information for coverage details and instructions for purchasing or signing into insurance.
Other University of Michigan Student Health Insurance Plans
Both the Domestic Student Health Insurance Plan and the International Student/Scholar Health Insurance Plan provide worldwide coverage, but students using those plans outside the United States usually must pay medical costs up front then file a claim with the insurance company to have those costs reimbursed. U-M students traveling abroad for University-related purposes cannot substitute those plans for the U-M Travel Abroad Health Insurance plan.
