Special Risk Accident Coverage Insurance for Asian Indians
India Network Foundation, a non-profit US based sponsor of visitor health insurance for elderly parents and others, announced the introduction of special risk accident coverage insurance for community events, associations meetings, and religious functions held in North America. American International Group (AIG), the underwriter of this program is the market leader for customized accident insurance solutions that meet the needs of groups or associations with members participating in a wide range of sponsored or supervised activities. The insurance plans help fill the gaps in general liability coverage by providing accident insurance for the organization membership.

Foundation offers assistance to cover event risk insurance premiums through its community grant program for qualified Asian Indian community organizations in North America to support and promote traditional and local cultural events.

Dr. KV Rao, India Network Foundation president commented, “Many community organizations have been requesting this coverage for a longtime. The foundation is pleased to offer customized accident insurance for event planning and activities sponsored by Asian Indian organizations in the United States.”

India Network is now able to create custom solutions tailored to meet specific insurance needs represented by the thousands of foundation members nationwide. In addition to the Asian Indian community, plans can be created for any one of multiple groups including amateur sports and recreation, non-profit and volunteers, entertainment and hospitality, education, work and travel.

India Network Health Insurance provides travel medical insurance and 24/7 travel assistance services through AIG Travel Assist. AIG offers student accident insurance for more than 375,000 college students through the 10,000 schools, organizations and institutions of higher education. Professor KV Rao added, “Custom insurance plans for Asian Indian associations participating in student exchange programs is a valuable addition to the visitor health insurance currently offered by India Network Health Insurance.”

India Network Opens Special Office to Assist US Citizens and Temporary Residents Enroll in Pre Existing Condition Insurance Plans

This article was originally distributed via PRWeb.

India Network Foundation establishes Office of Immigration Network to help US citizens and temporary residents understand available pre existing condition health insurance plans.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 11, 2012

India Network Foundation, a non-profit US based sponsor of visitor health insurance in the USA, announced the formation of the Office of Immigration Network to assist recently immigrated elderly Asian Indian parents obtain health insurance with pre existing conditions. US citizens or legal residents previously given a denial of coverage due to pre existing conditions now have access to coverage via a Federal program. Retired immigrants with diabetes or high blood pressure or any other medical condition that do not yet qualify for US citizenship may be eligible for limited pre existing condition coverage from India Network Health Insurance.
Immigration answers for pre existing condition coverage

Professor KV Rao, India Network Foundation founder commented, “In creating the Office of Immigration Network, we intend to provide a clearer understanding of pre existing condition coverage choices for elderly Indian parents in response to increasing questions from our membership.”

US citizens or residents diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure and other heart conditions are denied coverage by major insurance companies such as AETNA, United Healthcare, Assurant or Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Immigrants who came later in their life to the USA to join their children, likewise, face a denial of coverage.

The Affordable Health Care for America Act of 2010, i.e., ObamaCare, provides those US citizens and legal residents with pre-existing medical conditions to enroll in Federal health insurance plan. There are several conditions to meet eligibility requirements with the federal plan:

  • United States citizenship or reside here legally
  • Must be without health coverage for at least the last six months before applying
  • Must have a pre-existing condition or have been denied coverage because of a health condition

The Office of Immigration Network staff will assist individuals to identify the appropriate pre existing condition coverage available for their specific circumstances. If eligible for the Federal plan, the office will assist in completing the application process. India Network can help evaluate the denial of coverage and issue a letter if found eligible in support of an application.

The Federal insurance plan premiums are established by age, not by medical conditions of the individual enrollee and will vary by state. For example, the premium for a 50 year old is $428 per month with $2,500 out of pocket maximum per year in California. In comparison, visiting parents age 50-59 have access to pre existing condition emergency coverage from $186 per month with the Comprehensive Coverage from India Network Health Insurance.

Professor KV Rao added, “The pre existing condition coverage from India Network is significantly less expensive for individuals age 50 and older in comparison to the Federal pre existing coverage plan. With the growing membership and enrollment, we fully expect to maintain the highest level of benefits possible for temporary residents from all countries.”

Recent immigrants that wish guidance in selecting health insurance with pre existing condition coverage may contact India Network at 877-204-0222.

India Network Foundation launches Special Initiative to help US Citizens with Pre-existing Medical Conditions

India Network Foundation is pleased to announce formation of a special Office to assist elderly Asian Indian parents who might have immigrated to the United States later in their life and are unable to find a suitable health insurance plan. India Network Foundation has been sponsoring an award winning health insurance plan for visiting parents to cover them during their stay in the United States or anywhere outside home country. The coverage offered by India Network is includes limited coverage for pre-existing conditions (see http://health.IndiaNetwork.org) and is available to all age groups. However, US Citizens are not covered under the India Network Health Insurance Plan. In an effort to help those individuals and families, India Network Foundation launches this free consultation and guidance community service program.

Generally US Citizens diagonised with diabetes or blood pressure or other heart condition have hard time getting any kind of insurance and they are  automatically denied coverage by major insurance companies  such as AETNA, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Golden Rule (United Health), Assurant Health Insurance etc. under individual coverage mandates.   The member of targeted group for this service is someone who immigrated to the United States after their retirement in India to join their children in the United States on a permanent basis and have one or two common ailments such as diabetes and blood pressure.  India Network Foundation staff will work these impacted individuals on one to one basis and provide guidance on obtaining pre-existing condition coverage under the federal program.

The Affordable Health Care for America Act of 2010 (aka Obama Care) provides an alternative mechanism for US Citizens and legal residents that were denied health insurance coverage by domestic insurance companies.  There are several conditions to be met before someone could become eligible to participate in the federal pre-existing condition insurance coverage:

  • You must be a United States citizen or reside here legally.
  • You must be without health coverage for at least the last six months before you apply.
  • You must have a pre-existing condition or have been denied coverage because of your health condition.

If you meet all of the above requirements, please contact India Network Foundation office to assist you in completing the application process. India Network can help you in evaluating the third criteria above and issue a letter if found eligible in support of your application. The premiums for coverage under this program are established by age but not by medical conditions of the individual enrollee and they vary by State: For example, Premium for a 50 year old is $428 per month with $2500 out of pocket maximum per year in California.  Somewhat  Similar plan for visiting parents in 50-59 age  group offered by India Network costs about $186.26 per month. Thus the plan offered by the Federal Program is a bit expensive due to high risk involved in the plan.

Interested individuals, please contact India Network Office by sending your details in the form:  http://www.kvrao.org/contact.php
