Travel Assistance Services

Assistance Services are offered through GeoBlue by calling the provided toll free number (800) 257-4823 or international collect (610) 254-8771. As the name implies, these are services provided by the insurance company to their clients.  However, any cost arising from the subsequent provision of a third party service or product is not covered by the insurance. For example, if your passport is stolen, you may call for assistance and the provider will advise how to replace it; the cost of replacing the document is not covered by the insurance. 

The cost of subsequent third party services for medical care and cases requiring emergency medical evacuation, security evacuation, or repatriation of remains is covered by the insurance policy. However, the insurance company must be notified and pre-approve all care and transport.

GeoBlue also provides web-based medical, safety and security resources. Once a student is enrolled, resources may be accessed:  GeoBlue.
