BYU offers two premium traveler’s insurance plans through GeoBlue to help protect BYU students and BYU employees while traveling abroad. These premium GeoBlue international insurance plans include 100% coverage of up to $250,000 for medical care and medical evacuation, and $100,000 of security, natural disaster, and political unrest evacuation coverage. There is no deductible.
To qualify for GeoBlue international insurance, you must be a BYU student or fulltime BYU employee, and you must have continual primary insurance coverage through a primary insurance provider. GeoBlue only covers you during your time abroad. It does not cover continual medical care after you return to the United States.
Full-time BYU Employees
This GeoBlue "Corporate Traveler" insurance plan is only for full-time BYU employees (Faculty, Admin & Staff) who are going abroad on BYU business (research, conferences, work-realted projects, etc.) without students. BYU students are not eligible for enrollment in this plan.
Please keep in mind:
- You must be a full time BYU employee to qualify for coverage under this plan.
You must have continual primary insurance coverage, such as DMBA, while you are abroad in order to qualify for this Corporate Traveler's plan.
- If your primary insurance is through DMBA and you are leaving the DMBA coverage area for 90 days or more, contact the the BYU Benefits Office and review the BYU Benefits Services Out-Of-Area Coverage document.
- The Corporate Traveler plan is only for international travel less than 180 days per trip.
- This plan does not cover dependent children, though it does cover your spouse. You do not need to register your spouse.
- It is your responsibility to seek reimbursement through GeoBlue for any out-of-pocket medical expense you pay for during your time abroad. BYU will not reimburse you for these expenses. In order to receive reimbursement through GeoBlue, you must obtain itemized receipts for all medical and medication expenses you pay for out of pocket.
- This plan does not cover dental care.
BYU employees do not need to pay for this insurance plan. The university covers the cost for all full-time BYU employees, but in order to access GeoBlue resources, each employee will need to individually register with GeoBlue.
