Cultural Views on Sexual Assault

Along with our commitment to providing the very best international student insurance plans, we are also dedicated to improving the resources that we offer to both schools and students. As part of this effort, we have been working in collaboration with the Rape, Assault, & Incest National Network (RAINN) to offer a Sexual Assault Training Program that colleges and universities around the USA can implement to help educate international students about sexual assault. As part of the training program we worked with international students, just like you, to put together this excellent video on the cultural views of sexual assault from around the world.

You can learn more about the training program on our website, and if you think your college or university would be interested in implementing this training, please feel free to forward this link onto your school.

Do I Need an ACA Compliant Insurance Plan?

Lots of international students who come to study in the USA will be asking themselves the question “Do I need an ACA compliant insurance plan when I study in the USA.” The short answer to this question is no! International students holding an F, J, Q or M visa are exempt from the Affordable Care Act (commonly known as Obamacare) for up to 5 calendar years while in the USA. This can be confusing for some students, as their school might require that they purchase an ACA compliant plan, however, this is the school’s choice to enforce that requirement.

If you would like further information on this, please see our helpful article about the subject.

How Do I Know What My Plan Will and Won't Cover?

Let’s face it, most insurance policies are not the easiest to understand and read, and this is made more confusing by the special “insurance” terms that most policies use. Unfortunately, some insurance companies are not the best at explaining how things work. That is why we spend so much time on our insurance explained section to help you better understand all the different parts of insurance - and you can always call our team if you have any questions.

But how do you find out what is and is not covered on your insurance plan? Our helpful blog post will walk you through what you need to look out for!
