Neptune Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
International Student Insurance (ISI), the leading provider of international health and travel insurance for students around the globe, has improved its online service offerings by introducing new language capabilities integrated throughout the website. The site is now fully operable in both Chinese and Spanish, and the popular "US Healthcare Video" is now available in multiple languages.
“From policy information, videos, and blogs available in both Chinese and Spanish, students can now engage with our content in a way that allows them to be fully informed consumers, better than ever before,” says Ross Mason, Vice President of International Student Insurance.
In addition to adding new languages to the site, ISI has also added seven languages to the closed captioning of its popular US Healthcare Video. This resource was developed to help students understand the US healthcare system, including how to seek treatment and how insurance plans work. Colleges and universities throughout the US use this video to educate their students, and with the addition of subtitles in Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Russian, Japanese, Chinese and Arabic, students - regardless of their English proficiency - will know where to go and how to get treated.
“The US has an overwhelming number of provider options including hospitals, urgent care centers, walk-in clinics, doctor’s offices and student health centers, making the process of seeking healthcare often overwhelming for international students,” says Mason, “and that’s exactly why we’ve spent years building engaging resources and tools that help students and advisors alike.”
The US healthcare system is unlike any other in the world - with top quality healthcare, but at a price that is the most expensive in the world. It is important that international students understand what to do before they leave home, how to use their insurance, what will and won’t be covered, and where to go for medical treatment. ISI’s recent initiative on translation will empower students when choosing an insurance plan that’s most appropriate for their needs.
