If you have a health emergency, you or a trusted friend should contact your health insurance provider as soon as possible and as soon as you are safe. Please remember to carry your health insurance card with you everywhere you go while in the US. It is also smart to keep a copy with a trusted friend or family member back home. The IPO will also have a copy.

If there is any kind of natural disaster in the Hartford area, it would be a good idea to contact your home country consulate or embassy to let them know once you are safe. Please follow all emergency protocols locally to ensure your immediate safety before reaching out to home.
