Financial Strength, Commitment & Stability


ISO Student Health Insurance (ISO) is excited to be working with the Team at Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) to offer ISO Plans that are more flexible in meeting international student needs and institutional requirements.

BHSI is a strong and trusted global insurance partner, with offices in 14 countries and the ability to provide customized insurance solutions for customers in over 200 countries.  The BHSI story began in 2013 when Berkshire Hathaway Inc. CEO Warren Buffett announced that Berkshire Hathaway was moving into commercial insurance in a substantial — and everlasting — way.  With that proclamation, a strong and eminently trustworthy insurance partner was born.

Outside of the US, ISO Plans are offered through Citadel International Reinsurance Company Limited on behalf and in respect of the segregated account entitled “Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Bermuda” in Bermuda (which is reinsured 100% by Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company).  Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company is part of Berkshire Hathaway’s National Indemnity group of insurance companies, which hold a financial strength ratings of A++ from AM Best and AA+ from Standard & Poor's.

ISO’s new partnership with BHSI supports ISO’s core values, such as continuous improvement of its product offerings, and ISO is confident when it comes to the financial ability to pay its members’ claims (and there is nothing more important to ISO).

As the true leader of the market, ISO expects to continue to improve our products and continue to be the world’s largest insurance plan manager.
