International Health Insurance for Participants


Overseas health insurance coverage is required for all participants of WSU faculty-led Study Abroad programs. For most programs the Office of Study Abroad and Global Programs will enroll students and faculty members in an international travel health insurance plan through GeoBlue Worldwide Health Insurance for Higher Education. The cost for this coverage is often included in the program fee. Refer to the specific program page to see whether it is covered in your program fee or not.

Also, if you are a Wayne State student traveling independently, and wish to purchase insurance, you may do so.

Our office will process the insurance for you, once you have made the full payment via CashNet.  After making the payment, you must submit the GeoBlue Enrollment Form to the Study Abroad Office. Once you have received your insurance card, we encourage you to check out the amazing resources on their website: https://geobluestudents.com. (You will need your insurance card in order to login.) You can use this site to find out how to say medical phrases in the language of your destination, as well as schedule appointments with doctors, view local health and safety information, and personalize the site to your interests.

Please note that program coverage is effective only while overseas. Coverage is not provided for international participants while returning to their home country. It is important to retain your US health insurance during international travel periods in the event of medical evacuation.
