Coverage Abroad - Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

Medical and mental health providers abroad typically do not bill insurance companies. Students will pay out of pocket for services and bring back documentation (ex. invoices) to submit to their insurance company after they return to the United States.

For students who are on the DU Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), medical charges for covered services incurred in a country outside the United States are reimbursed by the SHIP at 80 percent of the actual rate billed by the service providers. All other Plan provisions, including plan deductibles, apply.
