Insurance for Dependents (F2/J2 & M2 visa)

One of the biggest changes we are seeing in the international insurance world is that many school group insurance plans are dropping dependents. These ACA compliant plans cover maternity and pre-existing conditions from day one, which have been leading factors in rising claims.

To combat this increase in dependent claims, insurers are removing dependents from their plans, leaving the student or scholar's spouses and children on their own. We are trying to meet this increasing need with a variety of individual insurance options that can cover dependents, from a standard travel medical plan to a more comprehensive major medical insurance plan.

See our dependent insurance page for more details.

Google Tag Manager & Analytics - Tracking Web Events

How do we know when a partner program is working and that we’re delivering the right amount of clicks, leads, etc., to the customer? In the old days we needed to use things like secondary click pages, tracking pixels on the remote side or sketchy javascript to record clicks. Today, we use a combination of Google Analytics and the Google Tag Manager to track each outgoing click to our partner’s sites, as well as other events like embedded video plays and site registrations.

This month we’ll walk you through each of the steps needed to track clicks from your website and to have them appear in your Analytics account as either events or goal completions.
