Health & Safety FAQ

  • Does NYU Provide International Health Insurance?

Yes, NYU provides all students studying away on an NYU Global Program with GeoBlue Health Insurance.  You will receive an email prior to departure. It is important that you take the time to read all of the information in this email. Before you depart, you will need to activate your access to the tools and information provided for you on GeoBlue’s website, including your Well Prepared Profile. You must also print your health insurance ID card from the site before you go. This is very important, as this card is your proof of coverage.  NYU Shanghai international students will remain on the HTH NYU Shanghai Global Plan.

  • Do I need to maintain my home insurance? 

You MUST maintain your domestic health insurance when studying away with NYU. The International Health Insurance provided by NYU covers you ONLY outside the U.S. while participating in the program, so if for any reason you needed to go home for care you want to make sure there are no gaps in your coverage.
