Health and Travel Insurance

Types of Insurance

Health Insurance provided by JMU

Students enrolled in JMU study abroad programs will be covered by a medical insurance policy administered by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) for the period of time that they are participating in the JMU program. This is basic health coverage of up to $250,000 and covers medical evacuation. More information concerning the insurance plan will be distributed with your orientation materials. Insurance cards and information regarding your plan will be sent via email before your program begins. Additional information and support services can be found by using the CISI Client Portal. Click here for portal access information. Cancelling your current US policy is not advised. Disruption of coverage could cause problems when reinstating. Click here for policy information.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

In addition, students are strongly encouraged to purchase travel and trip cancellation insurance that would provide monetary support for non-refundable expenses and service charges imposed by public carriers and travel suppliers, including baggage loss or delay. JMU does not represent or act as an agent for, and cannot control the acts or omissions of, any host institution, host family, transportation carrier, hotel, tour organizer or other provider of goods or services involved in the program. In the event of a voluntary withdrawal, JMU may be unable to refund student fees; however, students may make claim for unrecoverable expenses through a travel insurance provider.

List of Providers

This alphabetical list of insurance providers is compiled as a resource. JMU does not endorse any of the insurance companies or their services with the exception of CISI for health insurance for study abroad program participants.
