International Travel Insurance


In order to ensure that Alvernia’s international travelers have adequate insurance, all University travelers are required to enroll in the Chartis Travel Guard - WorldRisk Foreign Commercial Insurance.  Employee premiums are paid by the University, but students will be billed a $30 fee. 

The policy provides protection for travelers in the event of a sudden illness or serious injury.  In many countries, payment is required prior to receiving medical treatment and Travel Guard will help with payments and coverage includes medical evacuation for extreme cases.

Students that carry Alvernia’s student health insurance from USI Affinity also have a helpful traveler's assistance service called Europ Assistance USA.  This company is a service provider and not an insurance company, therefore any third party expenses incurred must be repaid by the student.

Contact the Director of Procurement & Risk Management with questions.
