In Case of Emergency

An emergency is a situation immediately affecting the health, safety and/or security of a participant on a UMSL study abroad program. Always carry the below contact information and insurance cards with you while traveling. If you are impacted by an emergency situation, you have a number of support resources available to you.  In case of an emergency abroad, you should follow these steps:

  1. Get immediate assistance. View emergency numbers based on your host country.
  2. Notify your faculty-director, on-site coordinator, or host institution. They should be able to offer additional assistance in cases of emergency.
  3. Contact the appropriate insurance provider:
  • For medical emergencies: GeoBlue can help you locate a medical facility, offer translation services, and guarantee payment. Members should go immediately to the nearest physician or hospital and then contact GeoBlue's Call Center (call collect): +1.610.254.8771 or Toll Free Inside the U.S.: 1.800.257.4823 or
  • For emergency evacuation/security services: UHC Global. If you have a security travel problem (such as medical, security, or political evacuation), call UHC Global by using the phone numbers listed on the back of your ID card. If you are in a country not listed, call the Baltimore, Maryland, Emergency Response Center collect (1-410-453-6330). A coordinator will ask your name, your University name, UHC Global ID number (330321) and a description of the situation. A multilingual coordinator will immediately render whatever assistance is necessary and will monitor your case until the situation is resolved.
  • You can review coverage and policy information here. Make sure to keep all receipts for any expenses paid out of pocket to submit for reimbursement to GeoBlue or UHC Global.

      4. Maintain good communication with the following contacts as necessary:
