Please note that international insurance coverage is not designed to substitute for any domestic health plan in which a student or employee is enrolled. Rather, it is meant to be supplemental to a domestic health plan, and it only provides coverage for a student/employee when traveling outside the United States. For information on the University’s Health Insurance and insurance requirements please contact Health Services at: 401-874-4756 or health@etal.uri.edu.
