Supreme Court ruling that upholds individual mandate for health insurance may increase verification of visitor medical insurance for non US citizens visiting the USA.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
India Network Foundation, a non-profit US based sponsor of health insurance in the USA, expects the Supreme Court ruling that upholds the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act, to increase the medical insurance requirements for temporary visitors to the USA. Professor KV Rao, India Network Foundation founder commented, “The health insurance mandate for US citizens may likely apply to non US citizens visiting the USA for extended stays.”
Since 1988, India Network Foundation has sponsored health plans for tourists, temporary workers and students visiting outside their home country. As a response to the increasing need for medical coverage for emergencies related to pre existing conditions, India Network introduced Comprehensive Visitor Health Insurance with Pre Existing Condition Coverage in February 2012.
Dr. KV Rao, reflecting on the Supreme Court landmark decision, added “The health care law addresses a major issue of coverage for people with pre existing conditions for US citizens. It is expected that visitors coming to the United States starting from 2013 may be required to show proof of health insurance coverage from US based health insurance providers before they will be admitted to satisfy compliance with the health care legislation.”
