• Why should I choose ISM’s College Student Accident and Sickness Insurance?

    ISM provides international students making the transition to higher education in the U.S. with quality seamless protection from a trusted partner.

It Matters. Here's Why.

  • International students making the transition from high school to college in the U.S. face the daunting task of maintaining their health insurance coverage—ISM’s International College Student Accident and Sickness insurance provides seamless protection with a trusted partner.
  • Students visiting the U.S. on J-1 Visas are required by law to obtain accident and sickness insurance. ISM’s plan meets the unique needs of these students.
  • International coverage is critical, not only for your students’ peace of mind, but for their parents as well. In today’s uncertain world, a lapse in coverage can be disastrous. In the event of an emergency (and considering the distance involved) coverage like this deserves serious consideration.
