Miscellaneous Insurance Coverages

Aircraft Non-Owned

If you pilot a personal or a rented aircraft, you should be aware of the University's policy for using this mode of transportation when conducting University business. The employee piloting an aircraft — while permitted with authorization — is not a recommended mode of travel.
However, if you find it necessary to travel by private airplane, here's what you need to do:

  • Get approval. You must have approval from your dean/vice provost or director.
  • File a Certificate of Liability Insurance. At least 10 business days before taking off, you MUST file with the UM Office of Risk & Insurance Management a certificate of aviation liability insurance showing the Curators of the University of Missouri as an additional insured with minimum limits of $2,000,000 per person, per occurrence and property damage.
  • Get insurance. Because the university will not be responsible for damage to the aircraft, it is recommended that you arrange for physical damage (hull coverage) insurance in all cases.

The Business Policy Manual addresses this mode of transportation in Section 504. For questions regarding this policy, please contact Risk & Insurance Management.

However, the first $200 of medical/dental benefits will be paid by this policy without contribution from other available insurance coverages.

  3. Complete the sponsoring Department information.
  4. At least 10 days before camp begins submit a copy of the report to Risk & Insurance Management at risk@umsystem.edu and save a copy.

There is a National Association of Notaries that offers a bonding program. For details, call 800-US NOTARY. The employee pays the premium and gets reimbursed by his or her department. Employees should not purchase the professional liability coverage.

Student Health Insurance Plan

The UM System believes it is important that students have insurance while they pursue their studies in the event of an unexpected illness or injury.

Through a competitive bid process, the university is able to offer a program that adequately covers its students and meets the following goals:

  • Provides reasonable financial security for students in case of serious illness or accident;
  • Offers good benefits at a competitive cost;
  • Complies with the US Federal law – Affordable Care Act (i.e., no maximums on essential health benefits, no cost share for preventive care, removal of pre-existing limitations); 
  • Meets J-1 visa requirements; and
  • Includes medical evacuation, repatriation, etc. – not a standard offering in health insurance plans.

While there are lower cost options and short-term plans available in the marketplace, many of them do not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and have several limitations (i.e., will not cover pre-existing limitations, do not have unlimited maximums and have several exclusions). 

Health care in the US is very different than health care in other countries. Many countries have a universal health program in place and the cost of care is much less than in the US.   Similar to other universities, enrollment in the plan is required for international students (unless the student is eligible for a waiver).

The UM System’s student insurance program is reviewed each year to make sure it offers the best program for its needs at a competitive price. Research shows that when comparing the UM System’s plan to other universities in the Urban 13 and SEC, the benefits are competitive while the premium is lower than most.  In addition, the university periodically markets the plan to make sure we keep the plan competitive

The university provides access to an individual student insurance plan. The program is available to any registered student of the University and offers spouse and dependent coverage for additional premiums. You can obtain further information by visiting www.aetnastudenthealth.com and entering Missouri in the school name search to get the plan details for your campus.

  • Reporting Claims: Claims should be filed with Aetna Student Health. Please refer to the Web site or call customer service at 877-375-7905.
