In this Internet era, there are many plans that show-up in google search... some of them pay up to $6 to get your attention! Don't be misled by list of various vendors on the first page of google.. that does not mean that they are better than others but simply they have lot more $$ to spend on advertising .. means that they will invariably have less money to pay your claims! All money spent on advertising has to come from the premiums you pay. If premiums look too attractive compares to India Network Health plan, please read carefully all documents and ask questions. Since India Network Health Insurance premiums are derived scientifically, it is unlikely that an insurance company would offer plans with lower premiums for similar coverage. Be careful and get familiar with limitations, exclusions, small print, big print etc. Also, note that almost all plans in the market are advertised and sold by agents. . who sell many plans without fully understanding each and every plan they put on their web site.
As many of you know, India Network DOES NOT SPEND any money on google advertising or otherwise but still a number of you found it worthwhile to investigate and insure your parents/in-laws and other relatives with India Network health Plan - the only plan that exists more than two decades and still serving the needs of many of our members.

Many of you may not realize that the India Network Health Insurance program has many important coverages to take care of your loved ones when they are visiting the United States or any country outside their home country. One of the specific benefits is called 'ACCIDENTAL DEATH DISMEMBERMENT of $25,000'. This is the amount that the Health Insurance Policy will pay in case of accidental death of visitor during their stay abroad. Partial amounts are payable in the following cases as well:
Life................................................................................. Principal Sum
Both Hands or Both Feet or Sight of Both Eyes....................................... Principal Sum
One Hand and One Foot............................................................... Principal Sum
Either Hand or Foot and Sight of One Eye............................................ Principal Sum
Either Hand or Foot................................................................. One-Half the Principal Sum
Sight of One Eye.................................................................... One-Half the Principal Sum
Unfortunately, accidents do happen and with India Network plan history of more than two decades, India Network distributed millions of dollars under this category. A major problem has been identification of beneficiary when paying death benefit. Please make sure that US Resident person, next of kin to the visitor is signed-on as member of India Network, and indentify clearly the relation between visitor and yourself. Second, please make sure that all visitors signoff on a beneficiary statement identifying one of their loved ones as beneficiary of any benefits payable under the program. This would help in case such a need arises and save time and faster disposal of claims.
Purchasing a heath insurance policy for yourself or your visiting parents is not a easy task. Many folks, including health insurance agents are often confused with various plans, coverages, deductibles, and exclusions. This is more so with agents selling many many programs through web sites with minimal or no in depth knowledge of each program that you see on the web site. This is yet another reason to think of India Network Plan. This program has been in place for more than two decades, originally written and developed by Dr. KV Rao, a demographer and a statistician with keen interest in providing a combination of coverage, affordable premiums, and reliability as the core principals in developing the program. It comes from a non-conventional side of health insurance and thus many agents either misread the program or misundertsand or appreciate the benefits of the program. For example, India Network program is the only one that offers coverage to all ages groups and special coverage for pre-existing problems with affordable premiums, and a deductible that we can live with. Yes, it is not the perfect plan but IT IS the best plan you could buy in the United States for your loved one.
You can rely on the experiences of thousands of folks before you in the last 25 years. The very reason that India Network Helath plan commands national attention is for its quality and innovative coverage options than advertising campaigns. If you are confused as many of us are, purchase India Network Premier Coverage, and you won't regret!
India Network Foundation under the leadership of Dr. KV Rao launched a brand new design to assist community members in enrolling and renewing award winning health insurance plans offered by India Network. The India Network Foundation sponsors three kinds of plans for visiting parents, temporary workers, students and their families directly in contract with the insurance company. These three plans provide three different options - a standard plan covering new problems and accidents; a premier plan covering new problems, accidents and old problem related emergencies; and a traditional plan covering new problems in the 80/20 PPO type plan. The direct contract with insurance carrier along with greater number of community members participating in the program made it possible to achieve these coverage levels without burdening the pocket book. Even today, India Network Health Insurance is the only plan that offers coverage for pre-existing conditions upto $50,000. A number of visitors already benefited by this program.
India Network health plan is helping hundreds of families everyday when their loved ones are sick with major illnesses such as heart attacks with our pre-existing coverage plans. However, lately there have been some who wait and purchase their plan just before heading to the emergency room with their sick visitor. Unfortunately, we can do very little for such visitors and their families. Everyday, we are seeing few families trying to use the plan for immediate sickness at hand and getting disappointed when they realize that no insurance can afford to cover a certain hospitalization immediately after the program. The India Network health insurance, like others, expects insured to be of their normal health at the start of coverage. Hence IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT ALL MEMBERS SHOULD PURCHASE THE PLAN ON OR BEFORE ARRIVAL OF VISITORS TO THE UNITED STATES AND NOT AFTER THEY BECOME ILL.
Please take advantage of the plan when it is available and get the premier plan coverage for all your visitors who are above 50 years of age whether they have an known conditions or not. This is the best use of your dollars.
