Student International Travel and Health Insurance

The University offers students and employees traveling abroad on University-authorized educational or work experiences a program of insurance through International SOS (ISOS). ISOS helps students and employees traveling abroad on University-authorized educational or work experiences with a 24/7 resource - on call, online and even on the ground - to help with any medical, security and logistical questions, concerns and situations that may arise. International SOS is NOT health insurance. Rutgers Department of Risk Management & Insurance provides ISOS services free of charge to its students, faculty and staff.  No registration is necessary for ISOS.  Certain services are subject to the authorization and approval of Rutgers Risk Management. Click here for information on the ISOS website.   Please contact the GSBBS at RWJMS office (732-235-5016) to obtain the password.

HTH is international health insurance.  HTH assists in providing health networks and medical care outside of the US.  Rutgers requires all international STUDENT travelers to purchase the HTH international health insurance.  It is optional for faculty and staff.  HTH health coverage currently costs $38/month (no prorate) to Rutgers students/faculty and staff.  Registration for HTH is done through Rutgers Dept. of Risk Management & Insurance.  Contact Steven Martini by email or 848-932-3008 for assistance.
