Business Travel – International Medical Coverage

As of February 1, 2013, Tulane University has arranged with Aetna World Traveler SM to provide specific gap coverage for benefit eligible employees and their dependents who travel overseas for University business for short durations of less than 6 months.

Currently, if you are a benefits eligible employee traveling overseas for less than 6 months then you are only eligible for emergency care while out of country.  This coverage is designed to provide emergency and non-routine (urgent) care coverage for you and your dependents in the event of an illness while overseas for this shorter period of time.
