International Insurance Information

UMaine requires all study abroad students to have international medical and accident insurance coverage during the entire length of your study abroad program period.


U.S. medical insurance is generally not accepted outside the United States, nor do the Social Security Medicare and Medicaid programs provide coverage for hospital or medical costs outside the United States. 


Direct Exchange Programs

Students will receive coverage through the "UMaine System On Call International Global Assistance and Insurance Program."


Recommended Programs: API, CIEE, CISAbroad, IES, ISA, SIT and USAC provide travel and health insurance coverage as part of the program cost. 


Other Programs: Discuss with the Study Abroad Advisor.
