34. Medical Insurance in India for Foreigners

Question: Dear Sir, Thanks for the information on your website. I have a question to ask as follows - Can Foreign Nationals of Indian Origin (OCI) buy medical insurance from any of the major insurance companies in India (if they are permanently residing in India) ? OR Is medical insurance in India only for Indian citizens / Indian passport holders ? Regards, Savio Fernandes Answer: Medical insurance in India is offered by private insurance companies as India does not have a Government sponsored health insurance plan offered by countries like Canada. Anyone who can pay the premiums can buy medical insurance in India from the many medical insurance companies in India. When you shop around you will find most of the companies offering medical insurance in India are some how linked to foreign insurance companies. For more information on shopping for medical insurance in India check the Health Insurance page and the Medical Costs in India page on this website. Shop around before you buy as plans offered by different companies while they may appear to be similar on the surface may be different when you check the fine print.
