International Travel

UNM provides two options for travel insurance:

Supervised UNM Sponsored Field Trips

The insurance coverage provided by UNM's insurance carrier, the New Mexico Risk Management Division, does not cover the cost of medical bills which may be incurred by a non-employee participating in a UNM-sponsored field trip. The only exception to this is if the University or one of its employees is found to be negligent and if this negligence results in injury to a non-employee.

As a result, the Department of Safety & Risk Services is pleased to offer medical insurance coverage for non-employees participating in and traveling to and from University of New Mexico sponsored/supervised field trips. This insurance should be purchased for all students and other non-employees. The coverage does not need to be purchased for employees since employees are covered by Workers' Compensation for any injury that occurs while performing duties within the scope of the employee's job at UNM.

The cost of coverage for one person for one day is 90 cents. The cost for three people on a 3-day trip is $8.10. Use the Requset for Group Accident Insurance Coverage Form to request the insurance coverage. The request form must be received by the Department of Safety & Risk Services prior to trip departure. Please note that the rate is per person.
