Travel Health Insurance Application Form

Complete this form to register for the University's mandatory international travel health insurance.

THE FORM IS FOR SCHOOL OF MEDICINE STUDENTS AND FACULTY ONLY. If you are not in the School of Medicine, please contact the Study Abroad office for more details. IF YOU ARE A UNC RESIDENT PHYSICIAN, click here to access the resident form.

Students are required to purchase travel health insurance through UNC School of Medicine if they are receiving academic credit or funding from UNC, or if they are acting in the role of a medical student.  For example, students are required to purchase travel health insurance through UNC if they are participating in a program like Himalayan Health Exchange, Child Family Health International , UNC Project Malawi, or any other program where the student is identified as a medical student – regardless of funding or academic credit. If none of these categories applies to you, you are ineligible for the special UNC rate at HTH, but can call them directly at the information below.

If you would like to have additional coverage beyond the maximum coverage dates stated below, you can contact the insurance provider, HTH, directly.

The current rates are as follows:

Full Coverage = $1.42 per day
Faculty/Staff Coverage = $2.95 per day

For more detailed information on costs, see the HTH rate sheet (being updated).
