Need Last-Minute Trip Insurance?

Trip planning can be a lot of work, and sometimes important things like trip insurance falls through the cracks. Fortunately, you can still get trip insurance if you’re departing on your trip today–minus the trip cancellation coverage you would no longer need.

Trip interruption insurance (sometimes called post-departure insurance) can provide coverage after you’ve departed. You could get sick, lose your baggage, miss your connection, or have to fly home early for a covered reason.

WorldTrips offers Atlas On-The-Go with next-day coverage for travel emergencies and reimbursement for unexpected events like these. Just enter your trip details and select that your departure date is today to buy On-The-Go coverage.

Which Type of Trip Insurance Plan Do I Need?

WorldTrips offers two types of trip insurance: Atlas Journey trip cancellation insurance and Atlas On-The-Go trip interruption insurance. Here are some key differences between these plans to help you make the best choice for your trip.

How Do I Submit a Claim?

You must complete, sign, and submit a Claimant's Statement and Authorization form along with proof of claim (itemized bills, payment receipts, medical records, police reports, etc.) for every incident. (Click here to download the form in Spanish).

Filing a Claim on Behalf of Someone Else? If you are filing this claim on behalf of another person, you MUST fill out the section of the Claimant's Statement and Authorization form labeled "Supplement D - Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information" – also known as a HIPAA form. This section must be signed by the policyholder in order for us to speak with you regarding any of the policyholder's Protected Health Information (PHI). Without this signed form, we may only disclose to you the status of the claim.

You can complete and submit the Claimant's Statement and Authorization form along with supporting documents in one of the following ways:

Via DocuSign within Member Portal (Most Efficient Approach)

1. Go to Member Portal (formerly Client Zone / Student Zone).
2. Log in to your account. If this is your first time using Member Portal, please click here to view instructions for registering your new account.

If you already have a Client Zone / Student Zone account, you do not need to register for a Member Portal account. Simply log in to Member Portal using your Client Zone / Student Zone login details.

3. Click "Claims and Appeals" in the main navigation menu.
4. Click “Submit New Claim Via DocuSign” button under the “Claimant’s Statement and Authorization Form” subheader in the “File a Claim” section and follow the instructions.

For more extensive step-by-step instructions, including screenshots, please see our “How to Submit a Claim” guide

Don’t Have Access to the Claims and Appeals Page? If you noted that you are not the insured or the insured’s legal guardian, you will see the Protected Health Information Authorization page in place of the Claims and Appeals page. Enter the insured’s email address and click “Send Request.” Once the insured has completed and submitted our HIPAA form, you will gain access to the Claims and Appeals page and have the ability to submit a claim within 3-5 days.

By Mail

1. Download the Claimant's Statement and Authorization form. (Click here to download the form in Spanish.)
2. Print, complete, and sign the form. Mail to: WorldTrips Claims Department PO Box 240358 Apple Valley, MN 55124 U.S.A. WorldTrips is also happy to fax, e-mail, or mail the form(s) to you upon request.

Important Note for Students
For eligibility purposes, you must submit the following along with a Claimant's Statement and Authorization form:
- A copy of your education-related visa (F-1, J-1, OPT, etc.) or valid I-20/DS2019
- Proof of full-time student status (not necessary if submitting a valid F-1 visa including OPT, or J-1 visa)

Can I Submit a Claim on Behalf of Someone Else?

Yes, you may submit a claim on behalf of someone else, but you must fill out the section of the Claimant's Statement and Authorization form labeled "Supplement D - Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information" - also known as the HIPAA form. We must have a completed copy of this form signed by the policyholder if you wish to speak with us regarding any of the policyholder's Protected Health Information (PHI). Without this signed form, we may only disclose to you the status of the claim. If you have already submitted a claim and you did not complete this section OR if WorldTrips has requested that you submit the Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information (HIPPA), you do not need to fill out another claim form.

How Do I Submit the Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information (HIPPA Form) If I Did Not Complete This Section of the Claim Form?

If you have already submitted a claim on behalf of someone else and did not complete this section OR if WorldTrips has requested that you submit the Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information (HIPAA), you do not need to fill out another claim form. You can submit the HIPAA form separately in one of the following ways:

Electronically via Member Portal

  1. Go to Member Portal.
  2. Log in to your account. If this is your first time using Member Portal, please click here to view instructions for registering your new account.

    If you already have a Client Zone / Student Zone account, you do not need to register for a Member Portal account. Simply log in to Member Portal using your Client Zone / Student Zone login details.

  3. Click "Claims and Appeals" in the main navigation menu.

If You See the Protected Health Information Authorization Page:

- Because you selected that you are not the insured or the insured's legal guardian upon registering for Member Portal, you do not yet have access to the Claims and Appeals page.
- Under the "Protected Health Information Authorization" header, enter the insured's email address and click the "Send Request" button.
- The insured will receive an email with a link to complete, sign, and submit the HIPPA form via DocuSign. You will gain access to the Claims and Appeals page and will be able to see the status of any pending claims within 3-5 days of the date the policyholder completed and submitted the form.

If You See the Claims and Appeals Page:

- Click the "Fill Out and Submit Via DocuSign" button under the "Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information (HIPPA)" subheader in the "File a Claim" section.

- Click the yellow "Continue" button, fill out the form and the required information (as noted by the red boxes); have the policyholder sign the form, and click the yellow "Finish" button.
- Clicking "Finish" submits the document and sends a PDF of your signed Authorization Form for Use and/or Disclosure of Protected Health Information to the email address entered. Download or print a copy of your completed form for your records.
