Health Insurance Policy

All students are required to have medical, dental and mental health coverage that is acceptable in the study abroad country throughout the duration of their stay abroad. Some host programs might include a health fee in their charges. Others will not accept personal insurance in lieu of their own policies, and the student may be required to purchase the program insurance. Also note that some of these policies cover the students only while they are on the program and are not valid if the student chooses to travel after the program ends or before the program officially begins. 

Students and their families are responsible for ensuring adequate coverage while abroad.  

Please note that Bryn Mawr College provides free travel health insurance for medical emergencies abroad. All students traveling for a College-sponsored program outside of the United States are eligible. Coverage isn't eligible for international students traveling in their home country. No action is required to enroll in the College's travel health insurance program.

All students should remain enrolled in their domestic health insurance plan while abroad.
