India Network Visitor Health Insurance Announces New Pre-Existing Conditions Health Insurance Plans For Visitors To The USA In 2018

India Network is pleased to announce new programs and plan options for visitors coming to the USA in 2018.

India Network Foundation is a non-profit organization with more than 30 years of experience in helping foreign visitors to the United States through sponsorship of various visitor health insurance plans. The visitor medical insurance plans offer affordable health insurance for all age groups of visitors (0 - 99 years old) irrespective of their health conditions. Coverage is available for pre-existing conditions through American insurance companies and all claim processing is carried out in the United States. Every year, thousands of families benefit from India Network Visitor Health Insurance plans that facilitate visits from parents and grandparents from around the world to the USA.

India Network Plans in 2018 are underwritten by CHUBB American Insurance Company and AXIS American Insurance Company of USA. The AXIS American Insurance company provides programs that offer value for the money to anyone looking for a good visitor health insurance coverage and willing to take higher responsibility for out of pocket costs. The BasicCare Fixed Benefits Plan provides minimum essential coverage for any healthy visitor coming to the United States with lowest premiums possible. Medical Evacuation, Repatriation, and Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage is also included in the minimum essential program. The AXIS Plans offer fixed benefits with limited pre-existing conditions, defined to cover acute onset of pre-existing conditions. More details on this specific coverage can be found at

CHUBB Insurance company underwrites India Network Health Insurance fixed coverage programs and network plans. These plans offer excellent coverage for pre-existing conditions, new problems and accidents. The CHUBB Premier and Network Plans offer pre-existing conditions coverage on par with new problems and accidents. A major deviation in definition of pre-existing conditions coverage make these plans life savers for many visitors over the years. The Network Program pays 80 percent of covered medical expenses for covered pre-existing conditions and non-pre-existing conditions. A unique feature of the CHUBB program is to provide unconditional medical insurance coverage for a visitor who can be assured of their coverage, for example, a visit to emergency room, irrespective of the reason.

"India Network Foundation has been working with several American Insurance companies such as Gerber Life, AIG, ACE, AXIS and CHUBB since its inception in1990s to provide excellent health insurance coverage for Asian Indians and others visiting the USA. CHUBB has more than $160 billion in assets and $35 billion of gross premiums written in 2016. CHUBB’s core operating insurance companies maintain financial strength ratings of A++ from A.M. Best. It reassures our members that they are in good hands when they get their coverage through India Network Sponsored Plans," said Dr. KV Rao, Founder President of India Network Foundation, USA.

India Network Foundation, established as a US non-profit organization, has been helping the Asian Indian community in North America with programs and grants to academics from India for more than two decades. India Network Foundation sponsors visitor health insurance to tourists, students, temporary workers (H1 visa holders) and their families. All insurance products are administered by India Network Services.
