ISO Customer Care | Jun 29, 2023 Insurance

1. You get rewarded!

That’s right! As a thank you for members who recruit new people to ISO, we offer a $10 credit towards your next insurance purchase for every new person you get to enroll with ISO. When you purchase, you’ll automatically have a referral link generated for your account which you’ll be able to send to friends to have them purchase their plan through.

How to refer a friend?

  1. Log in to your account on isoa.org
  2. Access your account page and click on the “Refer Now” button in the ISO Referral program section.
  3. Once on the referral page, either enter your friend’s email address to send them an email with your referral link or copy your link directly and send it to them through text/Whatsapp/etc.
  4. Have your friend click on the link and complete their purchase and you should receive a $10 credit which reflects on your account page.

We allow unlimited referrals for our members so there’s no limit to how much you can save on your future insurance purchases. Help yourself as you help a friend enroll with the leader in international student health insurance options.

2. ISO helps your friends SAVE

If you’re a member with ISO, you’re probably well aware of the amount ISO can help you save in comparison to other companies or more notably, your school’s health insurance. Many students may not know but the fee you pay each year for the school plan makes up a large chunk of your tuition, with plans costing $1500-$2500 on average. ISO’s plans are designed to offer a plan that meets the school requirements to waive out at the lowest rate possible, saving you hundreds each year.

If you’ve enrolled with ISO and enjoyed the large amount that we helped you save, you can help your friends enjoy the same perks by introducing them to ISO’s available plan options. Help them save big with ISO and you’ll have a great reason to have them pay the next time you’re out to lunch together.

3. ISO is here for our members

Though the savings might steal the show, the perks that come with being a member of ISO are also incredibly enticing.

Established in 1958, ISO was built by and continues to be supported by a staff of former/current international students who understand the unique needs all those who come to study in the U.S. face. We understand insurance is confusing and having to use it can be intimidating, but ISO makes sure we’re there for our members throughout the process.

We have a top-notch customer service team and a variety of resources available on our website to make everything a little less confusing. This, combined with our comprehensive insurance options, are designed to keep you and your friends protected from being asked to pay more than needed to seek treatment for an injury or sickness.

Referring your friend to ISO ensures they are getting the best coverage for their dollar and are supported by a team that cares and understands them - every step of the way.

The referral program is not limited to international students. You can still have any non-student friends with a valid US visa enroll with ISO to receive referral rewards. The same goes for if you don’t know anyone at your school who needs insurance but have friends elsewhere who do, as we offer plans for a majority of universities, colleges, high schools, ESL programs, etc. across the U.S.

Have a friend that’s graduating and needs insurance? Tell them to enroll in one of our F1 OPT insurance plans.

Have family visiting on a B1 visa? Tell them to enroll in our Voyager plan.

Have a friend at another school? Tell them to visit our website through your referral link and find the insurance option that works for them.
