Insurance in Ireland

Want to know what to do in case you get sick? Follow the link above for a copy of our informational packet that describes the overseas insurance, and includes a claim form.

You may need to pay for medical services up front and then submit a claim to CISI – you cannot simply hand your insurance card to the Doctor’s Office. It is important to be sure to keep any receipts from medical services rendered to submit with your claim form. This plan covers you worldwide, and serves as your primary insurance provider.

In addition to the CISI insurance coverage, you also have access to a 24-hour travel assist hotline. For information on coverage and instructions on submitting a claim, using the 24-hour hotline, and what is covered, see the information provided in the CISI Packet, which is linked in your Portal.

IMPORTANT NOTE: TRAVEL INSURANCE

Please note that the insurance provided for you via CIS Abroad is NOT travel insurance – there is no travel insurance included with your program. The insurance provided is MEDICAL/HEALTH insurance. We strongly recommend that you research travel insurance to decide if it is something that you would like to secure for yourself.

As travelers we want you to be prepared. We know that during your program you’ll have all sorts of trips/adventures planned and we want to ensure that you can do as much as you want without the stress! 9 times out of 10 trips go exactly as planned without hiccups, however when those hiccups do happen we want you to be covered!
