Overseas Supplemental Insurance

All students studying abroad are required to have overseas supplemental insurance to cover any accident or sickness that may occur. Most study abroad programs provide supplemental insurance for the duration of the study abroad program. Information about overseas insurance plans may be found on the specific study abroad program provider websites.

For those programs that do not provide insurance, Stonehill College will purchase insurance through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) on behalf of each student and provide an emergency card and information on the insurance plan. Students are not able to use the International Student Identity Card (ISIC) to fulfill the mandatory overseas insurance coverage requirement.

More information about the insurance coverage (including the Claim Form) may be found on the following website:


If an accident or emergency should occur abroad, students should seek treatment or care immediately, inform the on-site Directors and advisors, contact the Office of International Programs, and inform their parents/guardians. In addition, students must inform their overseas insurance carrier about any incident where medical treatment is provided. An emergency card will be provided by your study abroad program and will have a phone number that may be called 24/7 in the event of an accident or injury. The insurance company may be able to directly pay the expenses for medical care to the health provider or hospital, but in most cases students will need to complete a Claim Form and submit all receipts for medical treatment for reimbursement. Claim Forms will be made available to students through their study abroad program and/or insurance carrier. Students with questions about their particular coverage should contact their study abroad program provider directly for more information.
