International Health Insurance
All study abroad participants should be covered by a comprehensive international health insurance plan while abroad. Students participating in a Fordham-run semester program (London Centre, Granada, and Pretoria) or one of Fordham's short-term undergraduate programs sponsored by the International & Study Abroad Programs Office are automatically enrolled in a comprehensive plan for their time abroad through GeoBlue.
If you are not participating in one of the programs mentioned above or are a Fordham faculty member, staff member, or student traveling abroad for another purpose, you can purchase an international health insurance plan through GeoBlue's website. You can enroll online here or enter the Fordham group access code MFV-38920 when prompted to during the enrollment process.
Once you are enrolled in a plan with GeoBlue, you will receive an email from GeoBlue with information regarding your health insurance card and your GeoBlue portal access and mobile phone app. Through the GeoBlue portal, you will be able to find a network of doctors who accept the GeoBlue plan, along with medical vocabulary translations, medication information and the ability to have GeoBlue pay a provider directly in place of filing a claim. For instructions on accessing your health insurance benefits, please review the Member Guide.
Your family can access this same information through the GeoBlue Parent website.
For a brief summary of the features and benefits of this plan, please review the policy brochure.
If you are unsure whether or not your program includes health insurance coverage, please contact the Office of International and Study Abroad Programs.
