FrontierMedex provides coverage from the first day of the month your program begins and ends on the last day of the month during which your program ends. You are not covered by FrontierMedex for dates outside of that period.
Should a medical emergency arise, you must call International FrontierMedex as pre-approval is required for medical evacuation. The contact information for FrontierMedex is 1-410-453-6330 (collect call). You should identify yourself as a Cornell student and provide the Cornell group number #343211
You are required to register your travel in the Cornell Travel Registry website before leaving for your international internship. You will NOT be permitted to study abroad until you have registered.
