Working in collaboration with ISO has been a great experience. Their customer service is quick and reliable. ISO and their team have made the overall process simple and seamless both, on the student side as well as the administrative one. Our student can now get access to a comprehensive coverage without breaking the bank.

I recently enrolled in a plan which my university did not accept... I called ISO and they quickly helped me to switch to a plan that is acceptable by my university. I am very satisfied with ISO insurance as it helped me save a lot of money... For us international students, each penny counts!
