Can I purchase this policy for my spouse and children?
No. Unfortunately for this year, the policy is only available for the international students, OPT students and exchange scholars.
I was an international student but currently hold F1 visa during
the period of Optional Practical Training (OPT). Can I purchase
this policy? What is your eligibility requirement?
YES, international students with OPT status are eligible
to enroll in this insurance plan. This means a lot more savings for you. If you purchase other health insurance (not for students), it easily costs more than $250 to have the similar coverage.
How can I know whether or not my school regards iStudentCity's
plan as an equivalent or acceptable coverage?
You may go to see your advisors in, either International Student
Service (ISS), Health Center (HC) or other departments like Insurance
Office, which they can assist you to make a judgement whether or
not our plan meets your school's minimum requirements. Our plan is popularly accepted by most public and private universities or colleges
