International Health Insurance

Fordham BackPack

All study abroad participants should be covered by a comprehensive international health insurance plan while abroad. Students participating in a Fordham-run semester program (Fordham in London, Fordham in Granada, and Ubuntu in S Africa) or one of Fordham's short-term undergraduate programs sponsored by the International and Study Abroad Programs Office are automatically enrolled in a comprehensive plan for their time abroad through Gallagher and Co. Once you are enrolled in the insurance you will receive an email from with your policy information and ID card. Please be sure to open the email when you receive it and keep your ID card with you at all times before, during, and after your trip. 


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, including trip cancellation insurance, through Gallagher here.

Once you are enrolled in a plan with Gallagher, you will receive an email with information regarding your health insurance card and how to access your insurance benefits.
