ISO School Presentations
ISO Customer Care | Jan 19, 2022 Latest From ISO
At ISO we pride ourselves in our ability to be a resource to international students studying abroad in the U.S. We provide free resources on navigating the U.S. healthcare system, transitioning into new environments, understanding their insurance policy, and more! We strongly believe it is important for all international students to have health insurance to protect them from large medical bills. Our ISO representatives work with schools to further explain the importance of health insurance through presentations.
We have presented at a variety of schools over the past few years to explain the importance of health insurance while they are in the US. For schools such as DePaul University and University of Central Oklahoma, ISO is the exclusive provider , students receive an in-person or remote presentation on how to understand and use their insurance. We even work with schools where we are not the exclusive provider, these institutions include Computer Systems Institute in Illinois, American Academy of Dramatic Arts in California, and Stanton University. The goal of our presentation is to encourage students to have insurance coverage even if it is not an ISO Plan.
