Vehicles

For vehicles purchased, leased, or rented in a foreign country, drivers must purchase local auto insurance covering collision and comprehensive damage to the vehicle and liability coverage for injury or property damage to third parties. Emory will pay for or reimburse you for international car rental insurance if you are on university business overseas.

Please contact Kevin Wysner in the Office of Quality and Risk to discuss your specific international vehicle insurance needs. Arranging new coverage may take several weeks, so please plan accordingly.

Malpractice

For Emory-affiliated health practitioners, please contact your departmental chief business officer and Kevin Wysner to discuss the particular requirements for your planned activities in a foreign country.

Property

Please contact Kevin Wysner in the Office of Quality and Risk to discuss any real estate owned or leased by a program in a foreign country and the necessary property insurance requirements.

Health

For Emory employees, Emory’s Aetna POS health insurance plan covers emergency care in most foreign countries, but pre-authorization is required otherwise. If you have alternative health insurance, please call and confirm international coverage. Emergency medical evacuation services are provided through International SOS. Please complete your Emergency Record in ISOS with an emergency contact in the U.S.

Workers' compensation

Worker’s compensation insurance is dependent on several factors, such as the length of time an employee or contractor is working on location each year. Please contact Kevin Wysner in the Office of Quality and Risk regarding the variety of staff working on your international project to ensure that you meet the appropriate insurance coverage for each of them.

Other local insurance requirements

Please contact Kevin Wysner in the Office of Quality and Risk before beginning a global program to determine any local or international insurance requirements needed for your particular activities or assets.
