UC Travel Insurance Program

UC TRIPS saves roughly $700,000 in fiscal year 2010-11

UC Travel Insurance Program (UC TRIPS) provides a web portal to capture travel  information that enables UC to procure better coverage to protect the health, safety, and security of faculty, students, and staff while traveling on UC business.  While the program is focused primarily on providing better protection and maintaining a centralized source for data, it also reduces costs for members of the UC community while broadening coverage.  By purchasing this insurance on a systemwide basis, the University has achieved volume savings of nearly $700,000 to date in 2010-11.
