Welcome Back to Campus Edition
It has certainly been a hectic summer, and it's great to see so many new students either traveling to the USA or other parts of the world and embarking on new adventures. We are glad you have chosen us as your insurance partner, so please let us know anytime we can help you.
We also have some excellent new features on our website, namely our US Healthcare System video, which is a 6 minute video that helps you understand the healthcare system in the USA. Certainly a must watch for any student studying in the USA.
We also look forward to your feedback and comments, either by contacting us directly or via our social media channels.
The International Student Insurance Team
US Healthcare System Video
There is no doubt that the US healthcare system is not the easiest to understand for an international student. In most cases you are used to a nationalized or socialized healthcare system that handles a lot of the payment and hassles for you - however this is not the case in the USA. If you do not purchase a private health insurance plan, there is no nationalized health care that will help pay for your medical expenses. Instead, you will be stuck paying for all of the medical costs!
To help students navigate their treatment more effectively and efficiently we have created a short 6 minute video overview that explains the main features of the US healthcare system and how it works. If you are a new international student in the US, it's a great way to find out more in case the unexpected happens!

Submitting a Claim
Of course we hope that you stay in good health during your time abroad, but there could be an occasion where you need to seek medical care and submit a claim. In most cases we recommend that you visit a provider that is part of our insurance network - this will not only make the claims process smoother, but it will also limit your out-of-pocket expenses.
If you do have out-of-pocket expenses that you need to be reimbursed for, our handy guide on how to submit a claim will walk you through the process from start to finish. If you have any questions or need assistance with submitting a claim, please contact us.
