Quincy, MA (PRWEB) August 1, 2006
US universities and colleges typically require international students to purchase the school's health insurance plan, unless the student can provide proof of adequate insurance coverage from another source. To avoid having their students underinsured, schools have continued to increase the coverage and cost of the school insurance plan, while become increasingly strict about what insurance coverage is acceptable in lieu of the school plan. Although schools undoubtedly have their students' best interests in mind, often the insurance plan offered to international students is overly comprehensive and expensive in relation to the students' needs and budget.
To address the need for a comprehensive yet affordable alternative to high-priced school plans, InternationalStudentInsurance.com began offering the StudentSecure plan earlier this year. The StudentSecure plan, underwritten by Lloyds of London, provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient medical coverage up to $250,000 (Budget plan) or $300,000 (Select plan), in addition to specific benefits that schools often require, like maternity coverage, mental health coverage, prescription drug coverage, sports coverage, and emergency evacuation and reunion.
Ross Mason, Director of InternationalStudentInsurance.com commented, "The StudentSecure plans have been designed to meet the requirements most often demanded by US universities and colleges, with comprehensive, high-limit coverage. Since college students are generally young and healthy, rates are very low for the amount of coverage provided. Students, advisors and schools can all feel good about the StudentSecure plan."
The price for the StudentSecure plan for international students inside the USA begins at $46 per month, making it one of the most competitively priced plans on the market, especially in light of the level of coverage provided.
"In addition to being affordable, we wanted a plan that was easy to purchase and understand. Students can purchase the StudentSecure plan online and receive the id card and confirmation details the very same day by email. The plan can be purchased in monthly increments and can be renewed as long as you stay enrolled in school. Since there is no required network, students can go to any doctor or hospital that they choose, still with the same low deductible of $100 per injury or illness, which is further reduced to $50 if the student visits the Student Health Center first," added Mr. Mason.
