MEDEX Secure Travel Assistance Program Enhancements

Effective September 1, 2007, legal dependents traveling with Yale faculty or staff on University business will be automatically covered under the University MEDEX program and no longer need to enroll.

For personal travel, faculty and staff may continue to enroll dependents at $4.00 per person per month by contacting MEDEX directly.  Complete details and instructions can be found on the Risk Management website under “Can I add Dependents?”

For University programs wishing coverage for non-Yale affiliates, chaperones, volunteers or guides who intend to travel with a University travel group, “Small Group” coverage is available at $4.00 per person per month. 

The “Small Group” program also allows continued coverage for graduating seniors who intend to travel after graduation due to the award of a Yale grant or fellowship at no additional cost.  To ensure continued coverage, Fellowship sponsors should complete the “Small Group” form for those graduating seniors in need of continued coverage and submit to MEDEX.   The complete details, instructions and form can be found on the link above.
