Ohio University Insurance

All students participating in Ohio University study abroad programs are provided comprehensive medical insurance by the university.

Ohio University has worked with University Health Plans (UHP) to establish a unique insurance program with Nationwide Life Insurance Company for students abroad on Ohio University-sanctioned programs. 

UHP works seamlessly with the premier international services provider, International SOS (ISOS), who will be there for OHIO students when emergency medical, personal, travel, legal, and security assistance services are needed when traveling overseas on a university-sanctioned program. A summary of benefits is available at ohio.edu/goglobal.

To reach the Ohio University emergency line, please dial 1 740 593 4583.

In medical situations, International SOS should be called immediately to advise on the situation and arrange direct payment to the medical care provider.

Ohio University students will receive an International SOS card with the number to call in order to arrange payment. It is important to call in advance in order for payment to be arranged with the medical provider.
