University employees may use their employee health insurance when outside the U.S. In addition to this medical insurance, the Texas A&M System has contracted with Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) to provide emergency services for any employee abroad on university business. There is no additional cost for this emergency service. Faculty and staff who wish to purchase supplemental medical insurance through CISI to compliment their existing medical insurance may do so by contacting the Study Abroad Programs Office at 979.845.0544 or at studyabroad[at]tamu.edu.
In addition, some life insurance and travel agency insurance programs offer other types of travel assistance. Check with your other insurance carriers for more information.
