Travel Medication Reimbursement Policy

Travel Medication Reimbursement

In support of the university’s commitments to global education and healthy lifestyles, Human Resources will reimburse eligible employees for work-related travel medications.

To be eligible for reimbursement you must:

  • Be a benefits-eligible PLU employee
  • Complete a Travel Medication Reimbursement Form and obtain verification from your supervisor (signature)
  • Provide adequate documentation so the services and reimbursement amount may be easily determined

Medication may be prescribed by a travel nurse, your personal physician, or another qualified medical provider. This policy also covers costs associated with follow-up travel medications.

Work-related travel medications may include those needed in a variety of situations including: attending an international professional conference, leading a J-term, summer-session or semester-abroad class, representing PLU on official business, or the pursuit of scholarly work. PLU will not cover non-work related travel medications or medical consultation fees. If there is any doubt about whether or not your planned travel is work-related, please consult with your supervisor in advance.
