Quincy, MA (PRWEB) January 10, 2006
A study by the Institute of Medicine highlighted that as of January, 2004, nearly one in six Americans are not covered by adequate health insurance. This staggering statistic, which equates to 43 million people, highlights the need to educate our future generations about the need for obtaining health insurance coverage. This is even more so when traveling abroad, and InternationalStudentInsurance.com has launched a new campaign to try to increase student awareness about health and travel insurance issues.
Ross Mason, head insurance agent for InternationalStudentInsurance.com commented, "As we know, student travel is on the increase throughout the world. The number of US Citizens studying abroad, and international students coming to the USA keep increasing year after year. Our plan is to try to increase awareness among the student body to make sure they check they have the right health insurance limits."
InternationalStudentInsurance.com has developed a resource center for students to assist them in identifying the key areas of insurance, coverage limits and benefit scheduling. "We aim to provide students with information which they will find helpful in their insurance buying process," added Mr. Mason. "Our site provides articles covering aspects such as explaining insurance terms, or providing information on what features to look out for in various plans, all with the primary aim of educating the student to make an informed decision."
A large number of students may even have coverage through their school or parents, however they are still urged to check these coverage limits and most importantly check the exclusions for what is not covered, especially when studying or traveling internationally.
