UnitedHealthcare Global​ Travel Assistance

All Yale College students are covered free of charge by UnitedHealthcare Global's travel assistance plan. UHC Global Travel Assistance is not health insurance and should not replace adequate insurance coverage.* Instead, UHC Global can provide specific services to support you while traveling, from assisting with a lost passport to providing a medical referral to evacuating you from the country when necessary. A complete description of their services is on their website.

You have online access to UHC Global with your Yale NetID and password. After logging in, you will be able to print out a UHC Global card, which you should take with you abroad. If you ever lose your card, you can always log in and print out another.

Please make certain your family knows about the UHC Global service, and that they have the website link or a copy of the card. It is also helpful to inform your study abroad onsite program staff onsite that you are covered by this service.
