Membership Services

Whether minor or serious, International SOS is available to help you 24/7 during and after a medical, mental health, or security incident abroad.

International SOS is not:

International SOS does not provide health insurance coverage or travel agency services.

  • International Insurance: International SOS is not international health insurance. It is an assistance company helping to connect you with essential information and services. However, it works with Notre Dame’s insurance partners, like GeoBlue, to coordinate referrals, payment and assistance for covered events behind the scenes for a seamless experience. Before you leave, check with your health insurance provider about your international coverage options.
  • Travel Agency: If you need assistance booking general travel logistics, such as flights and hotels, please visit Notre Dame's Travel Services website.

*While the University has a comprehensive membership with International SOS, some International SOS services may be outside the scope of Notre Dame’s membership and carry additional charges for you or your insurance provider. Should you request a service which has an additional charge, International SOS will inform you in advance and require a personal credit card for these services.
