Am grateful to Ms. Anju @ Asia Pacific for expediting my overseas Health Insurance application. She has been very helpful from the process of choosing the insurance at the very start, to the end. She was also extremely friendly in the process and patient when it comes to dealing with any issues faced. I would strongly recommend her to any other student looking for advice on discounted overseas student health insurance. No one can compete their quotation. Thanks again
