Since 1991, LewerMark has tailored programs to fit the health insurance needs of international students and the institutions where they study. Our experience managing international student insurance programs allows us to offer a range of plans that are easy to use and to understand. With insurance in place, students can minimize their risk of surprise out-of-pocket expenses that can devastate a budget. Our programs allow them to budget for the known and avoid the shock of unknown perils.
