Travel Health Insurance Application Form
This form helps to sign you up for the University's 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 PHYSICIAN RESIDENT, 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, Interhealth South America, International Health Partners , IFMSA 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 uneligible 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, Highway to Health, directly. For an overview of what this insurance covers, please see the HTH study abroad brochure.

Full Coverage = $1.42 per day
