DePaul purchases travel health and accident insurance for all students for the duration of their study abroad programs. There is no additional charge for this service and the coverage is required.
Learn more about our insurance carrier, CISI (Cultural Insurance Services International) at their website and by reading our CISI Brochure & Claim Form and the myCISI Participant Guide.
If you have your own insurance or are covered by a parent or guardian, then CISI acts as additional coverage.
The myCISI mobile app allows students to view their travel insurance documents, check in during an emergency, find medical providers abroad, access telehealth services, view travel alerts and warnings, submit claims, and more.

CISI coverage includes mental health crisis intervention over the phone, if you need to immediately speak with a mental health provider. There are also remote telehealth services available through the "Doctor Please!" app, for virtual consultations regarding minor medical issues.
Under the CISI policy, any treatment for COVID-19 is covered as other illnesses, including testing, doctor visits, and hospitalizations. CISI will not cover testing that has not been recommended by a health professional (e.g. for peace of mind or to reduce the mandatory quarantine period).
