The University of Utah strongly encourages international travelers to purchase international insurance coverage, and has partnered with Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) to allow University members to enroll in comprehensive coverage. This University of Utah group insurance policy is not available to the public, and University travelers must follow the directions found in the CISI Enrollment Instruction document (attached) in order to receive the comprehensive benefits available to University members.
Travel insurance is a University of Utah approved travel expense, and as such, will be reimbursed upon approved request either before or after the trip. Attached are the CISI Enrollment Instructions as well as the CISI Summary Contact Sheet. Again, employees must follow the directions provided in in order to enroll in the comprehensive University coverage.
