Residents are required to purchase GeoBlue International Travel and Emergency Health Insurance through UNC School of Medicine if their travel is related in any way to their medical training.

If you are traveling for leisure in a non-UNC/H role, you are NOT eligible for the GeoBlue UNC group plan. However, you can contact the insurance provider, GeoBlue, directly to inquire further.

Policy rates for GeoBlue are as follows:

Resident Full Coverage = $1.50 per day
