By registering your travel you will also be able to request CISI international health insurance enrollment coverage. CISI is not considered comprehensive travel insurance, but may be used to cover the cost of i.e.: cancelled travel or lost luggage. This insurance is meant to supplement, not replace, travelers’ regular insurance plans. The cost of the insurance can be paid for by check or money order in the CIE Study Abroad Office, or invoiced to a department or unit on campus.
Processing of registrations and insurance is not done same day. If traveling alone or with other UWM faculty or staff, you must register at least one week prior to departure. Requests within five business days of departure may be subject to a $15 rush fee. Please plan accordingly.
- UWM faculty and assistants who conduct UWM research abroad
- UWM faculty and staff attending international conferences
- UWM faculty and staff serving as part of an official UWM delegation abroad
- UWM faculty and staff traveling for other university-related purposes
If you are unsure about your eligibility you should e-mail email@example.com with the information indicated below no later than one week before your scheduled international travel if traveling alone or with other faculty/staff, and no later than three weeks before departure if traveling with students.
- Travel Dates
- Destination(s) – include day-to-day itinerary if available
- Purpose of travel
- Relationship to UWM
Following receipt of registrations, faculty/staff will be labeled as “applied” until all necessary information is collected. CIE reviews the information submitted to determine eligibility and follow up on missing materials. Review criteria include, but are not limited to, having a clear connection to UWM travel-related business, and whether or not the university will be able to ensure adherence to legal and risk management principles.
Following review, faculty/staff will have a status of “confirmed,” and they will then be contacted by CIE with CISI insurance materials and about payment for coverage.
- One week: $24
- Two weeks: $32
- Three weeks: $42
- Four weeks: $50
- + $33 for each additional month
Any questions regarding insurance coverage costs should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proxy Travel Registration
Proxy registration is available for those who wish to register travel as well as request CISI insurance on behalf of someone else. You will be able to log in using your own credentials, search for them by name, and then input the required information. Click the button below to get started.
Once enrolled in the insurance, you will receive information regarding access to the CISI health insurance online portal. There you will be able to:
- View/print/e-mail your ID card, coverage brochure, consulate letter and claim form
- Purchase extra insurance for a period of personal travel
- View/update your online account profile information
- Search for hospitals and clinics overseas
- Find valuable travel-related information
Seek medical assistance for any incident that you think may require service. CISI will not cover expenses for follow-up medical service in the United States if an incident report was not filed while abroad.
Most hospitals, clinics, and doctors abroad will not accept CISI insurance at the time of service. This means that you (or the sick or injured student) will have to pay for the medical care, then later submit a claim form for reimbursement (paying for medical service fees is not the responsibility of UWM or the Study Abroad Office). To ensure that you are reimbursed, it is very important that you keep all medical service receipts.
