6. Student Sound-off - HOT Topics from the mail bag
As you can see we have changed our "Student Sound-off" topic slightly as we are now going to scan our forums, blog and mailbag for topics that are interesting you during the last month! This month our hot topic appears to be insurance - and trying to find a high quality cheap plan...

Right now i am at the USA. I am from vietnam. Now i am going to college. My college named Bloomsburg University in PA. I want to purchase your student insurance but i dont know: Does this insurance apply to my school in PA?

A question that we always get is from students looking to waive from their schools plan. Most schools will allow you to opt for another insurance plan as long as it meets certain requirements and hence we developed the Student Secure plan which will meet most schools requirements. You can see the plan online at:

Of course all schools have varying requirements, but most of the time the Student Secure will meet most schools requirements and the plan will cost you:

6 Months Student Secure
Select Plan - $456
Budget Plan - $276

If you want to see if you can apply for this plan instead of your schools give the insurance specialists an email or call at (877) 328-1565 option 4 or email them at - alternatively simply apply online!
