The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee partners with MEDEX Global Group to provide athletes and USOPC staff with travel insurance and assistance competing or traveling abroad. MEDEX Plus, MEDEX Safetrip, and TravMed Abroad are available to athletes and their families.

Athletes enrolled in the Elite Athlete Health Insurance program automatically receive MEDEX Plus coverage with no purchase necessary. The EAHI program provides comprehensive travel assistance, as well as emergency medical evacuation and repatriation for any location in the world. To request a MEDEX identification card, contact your EAHI administrator.

MEDEX SafeTrip and TravMed Abroad
Athletes who are not enrolled in the Elite Athlete Health Insurance program and would like to purchase travel insurance – or additional coverage for their family – may enroll in the MEDEX SafeTrip or TravMed Abroad programs. Available for a nominal fee, these programs provide the same quality of travel and medical assistance that are offered through the EAHI program. Requests for MEDEX Plus, SafeTrip, or TravMed Abroad coverage must go through your respective National Governing Body.

For more information, contact either your EAHI administrator at 800-933-4473, ext. 3, or Viola Cruz, USOPC manager of benefits at
