Medical Emergency Insurance
The University of Central Oklahoma requires all faculty, staff and students to have adequate medical insurance while traveling or studying abroad on university-sponsored programs.
Policies purchased through UCO offer core benefits and reasonable group rates provided by International Student Insurance, a NAFSA Global Partner and an accredited insurance agency with an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.
The plan is designed to assist you in the event of an unexpected accident or injury while abroad, including coverage for medical expenses, emergency and political evacuation, repatriation of remains, emergency reunion, lost checked luggage, and other related benefits. The cost varies per individual as the plan is based on a daily rate as well as gender, age, and length of coverage. A full list of benefits can be found at Schedule of Benefits.
When students are accepted into a semester or yearlong exchange partner program, they should communicate their travel dates to the Centre for Global Competency. Once your insurance has been processed, you will receive a confirmation through your UCO email address. All individual student insurance charges will be placed on the student’s bursar account. Insurance requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the departure date to ensure coverage.
Visit the International Student Insurance Student Zone to find more information about seeking treatment, finding a provider, filing a claim and printing your insurance card.
Any questions or concerns about insurance may be sent to the Centre for Global Competency.
