Travel Insurance

Faculty Travel Health Insurance Information


For short trips this travel insurance coverage is available. The cost is approximately $4.00 per day for travelers under 70 years of age, slightly higher for over 70. The service is comprehensive and very reliable. This is the policy UNM recommends for all short-term international trips for both staff and faculty. For details and application forms, see

BETA (Basic Emergency Travel Assistance)*

This is a policy option for travelers who believe they have sufficient international health and accident coverage, but do not have medical evacuation and repatriation. This company offers a policy that provides minimal medical evacuation and repatriation, but no other coverage. Details are available

*NOTE: although this is the cheap alternative, it also provides the least coverage.

For general information on insurance and liability at UNM, visit UNM Department of Safety and Risk Services.
