GeoBlue for Employees

Northwestern faculty and staff traveling internationally on Northwestern/university business will be automatically covered by Northwestern's business traveler insurance plan (“the plan”) provided by GeoBlue. However, completing a one-time registration is necessary to maximize employee benefits and access provider details. Pre-registration will expedite any need for services during travel. No travel dates or destinations are required to register. 

"Northwestern/university business" is international travel in support of one's Northwestern duties and responsibilities. Such travel should be funded by Northwestern through operational or grant funds. Examples include conference attendance, data collection, collaborative research, short-term teaching or research assignments, recruitment, and site visits as well as employees who accompany students abroad for research, study or volunteer activities supported by Northwestern.
