Is this plan managed by INF?
This plan is managed by Trawick International, not the INF. INF Plans are underwritten by US Based Companies and have a 100% claims payment rate. Because we do not manage the Trawick International plans, we do not have any incite on claims payments rates. We also do not produce the ID cards, certificates of insurance, or handle any of the claims for this plan.
Can I cancel this plan?
You are able to cancel this plan by providing a written request for policy cancellation. A cancellation before the start date will refund the full premium, minus a $25 processing fee. If the policy has begun and you have not filed any claims, a prorated amount will be refunded to you. However, if a claim has been filed with the policy, there will be no refund given.
Why is this plan cheaper than an INF Plan?
This plan does not afford the same coverage nor benefits than most INF sponsored health insurance plans. For example, INF Premier plan covers issues such as urinary tract infection, which this plan does not cover. The INF Premier Plan will also cover ALL pre-existing conditions. Moreover, because INF Plans provide a higher benefit & actually pay claims, the premiums may be relatively higher.
