Provost Rankin and I are pleased to announce that University of Maryland international travelers on university business will automatically be enrolled in UMD's comprehensive international health insurance, including medical and security evacuation, administered by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). This collaborative effort by the Office of International Affairs and the Department of Business Services will provide UMD travelers with coverage while traveling abroad at no charge to the traveler or the traveler's department.
This insurance coverage will be provided for UMD international travelers (excluding travelers on Education Abroad trips) who are originating from the U.S. and who have their Travel Approval Request approved by 6:30 p.m. three days before the trip departure date. Covered travelers will receive a CISI Identification Card via email prior to their departure date.
A summary of coverage and information about how to use CISI services are available on the CISI website. UMD travelers should direct questions regarding coverage and available services to CISI at 800.303.8120.
