Non-Staff Members

The United Nations (UN) does not provide health insurance to Non-Staff Members.  However, the United Nations is pleased to announce that effective immediately Orion International Insurance Services (Orion) is available to provide assistance to Non-Staff Members needing to purchase travel medical insurance.  Orion is a leader in brokering travel medical, expatriate and other international insurance products.  

UN Requirement

All Non-Staff Members are required to have a travel medical insurance policy when traveling outside of their home country on UN business.  This includes contractors, consultants, experts, and committee and commission members.  The good news is that Orion has built a dedicated website just for Non-Staff Members.  At the site Non-Staff Members can create their own quote, buy the insurance online and receive confirmation of coverage in just a few minutes.

How to Use Orion's Site

Please send all of your departments Non-member Staff directly to Orion’s site listed below.  The process is simple and all travel insurance is guaranteed issue.  The site also has information about coverage benefits and a helpful FAQ’s section.  Non-Staff Members can also find information on expatriate medical plans and international insurance for groups on the website.

Who to Contact with Questions

All inquiries must be sent directly to Orion as the UN does not manage this programme.
