Stevens Point, WI (Oct. 15, 2018) – Special Markets Insurance Consultants (“SMIC”), an AmWINS Group, Inc. company, today announced a new International Student Health program which provides a simple solution for K-12 schools, colleges, and universities that have a population of international students studying in the United States.

“Our International Student Health program adds to our suite of products for students,” said Kim Walker, Chief Executive Officer of SMIC. “We have offered student accident and general liability for many years, but now agents who work with us have access to a health insurance product that really fits the needs of this special group of students.
