Georgetown University (GU) requires students enrolled in a study abroad program to be enrolled in the Study Abroad Student Health Insurance Plan arranged by CISI Insurance Worldwide, an insurance agency. In addition, most full-time students must be enrolled in another health insurance plan that covers medical expenses with an unlimited maximum benefit in the United States.
These requirements enable:
- Students to obtain the necessary health care while abroad;
- Students to return to the United States with medical assistance when medically necessary;
- Students to obtain the necessary health care upon their return home; and enables,
- Georgetown University to facilitate emergency services abroad with one common company on the student's behalf when necessary.
