Overseas Programs will enroll all WU-approved study abroad students in a basic accident and sickness plan through HTH Worldwide, a leading provider of international health insurance. This plan should be seen as supplemental to the student’s existing domestic health coverage, not as a replacement.  We do not recommend a reduction or suspension of existing domestic coverage in light of enrollment in HTH insurance.
