When traveling abroad on University business, Cornell Faculty, Staff and Students are provided with travel assistance services through our program with UnitedHealthcare Global.  UnitedHealthcare Global supports Cornell travelers with Travel Assistance, Medical Assistance, and Medical, Security and Natural Disaster Emergency Evacuation.   The services provided by UnitedHealthcare Global do not include health insurance.  If you are injured or become ill while traveling, you should plan on relying on your own health insurance to cover medical expenses.   UnitedHealthcare Global can assist with hospital payments, but the traveler remains responsible for the expenses incurred.

Information about the program can be found at: Global Cornell, click on “Access UHC Global Now”

NOTE: If you are traveling for personal or non-university business, please contact UnitedHealthcare Global Sales at 1-800-732-5309 or go to if you would like to purchase a similar program.

If you need information on health insurance for your trip, employees should contact Benefit Services.  Students should contact the Office of Student Health Benefits .
