Benefits Notice: Hosting Visitors from Outside the U.S. for the Holidays?
If you are expecting visitors from outside the country, consider buying insurance to cover unexpected or emergency medical expenses since most personal and national health plans provide limited international coverage, if any. Gateway Visit America offers a low-cost, comprehensive package of benefits and services to persons visiting the United States on a temporary basis. Coverage periods range from 15 days to 6 months. Along with basic accident and illness coverage, it includes travel assistance services as well as repatriation and evacuation coverage. To learn more about who is eligible, how much it costs, and how to enroll contact Human Resources for a brochure at (858) 784-8487 or email benefits@scripps.edu.
