UnitedHealthcare Global Insurance


Medical Coverage

UNL Education Abroad purchases UnitedHealthcare Global (UHCG) coverage for each participant traveling outside the United States for all UNL Education Abroad programs. UNL Education Abroad arranges premium payment with UHCG directly. Students are instructed to log in to the website (https://www.uhcsafetrip.com) to become familiar with the provider’s resources and download their electronic insurance card. Active UNL faculty/staff members are covered by a comparable policy through UHCG.

Students and leaders may use the UHCG website or contact the UHCG Emergency Response Center to find a doctor in the network that allows direct billing. The website contains many other useful resources including translations for common conditions and medication names in your destination.

Claims for medical care may be submitted online at https://www.uhcsafetrip.com. Each student is responsible for submitting his/her own claims, and should keep all receipts and medical documentation.

Emergency/Natural Disasters

The UHCG student and faculty/staff policies also offer Emergency/Natural Disaster services and evacuation coverage. In the event of an emergency, faculty leaders should contact UHCG for assistance. UHCG will then take all appropriate actions to assist the members in getting to the nearest safe haven. Contact UHCG by calling +1.800.527.0218.
