Xavier University offers travel insurance through Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) to faculty and staff who travel internationally for Xavier business. It is $37.50 per month of coverage.

Please see this document for details: 2019 Policy_Brochure.pdf

You can self-enroll for the period of travel by following the instructions in this document: CISI Self Enrollment Checklist.pdf

The attached self-enrollment guide is for when faculty are traveling on their own (i.e. for research or a conference) and want to purchase coverage.  Xavier’s medical insurance policy treats international travel as out-of-network and so we suggest including this purchase in any international experience.
