UnitedHealthcare Global for faculty, staff and students
When traveling abroad on University business, Cornell faculty, staff and students are provided with travel assistance services through our program with UnitedHealthcare Global. (Create a free user account at UHC Global using the Cornell United Healthcare Global ID# 343211). UHC Global supports Cornell travelers with travel assistance, medical assistance, and medical, security and natural disaster emergency evacuation. The services provided by UHC Global do NOT include health insurance.
If you are injured or become ill while traveling, you should use your own health insurance to cover medical expenses and expect to pay out-of-pocket. UnitedHealthcare Global can assist with hospital payments, but you remain responsible for the expenses incurred.
NOTE: If you are traveling for personal or non-university business, please contact UnitedHealthcare Global Sales at 1-800-732-5309 or go to www.uhcsafetrip.com if you would like to purchase a similar program.
Some countries require proof of coverage before issuing a visa; contact Risk Management and Insurance (607-254-1575) for confirmation of UHC coverage.
