You need health cover regardless of what you take two at a time - pills or stairs.
  • Various Discounts Offered in a Health Insurance Policy

    The insurance market is overabundant with offers and discounts from various insurers, who are competing each other to make a strong foothold in the industry. In this web of financial intricacies where inflation has swelled the hardships of earning hands, the term discount has a special significance. People are opting for various insurance plans because of increased financial literacy and awareness, but still discounts can give that extra push in the direction of making investment decisions. Here are some of the best discounts offered by companies operating in the insurance segment.

    Discounts for Family Members:

    Most insurance companies offer discounts on health policies if additional members of the family are covered along with the policyholder. However, these discounts do not increase with the number of members insured. For example, if a policyholder avails a discount on adding his spouse, he may not be eligible for further discounts if he includes his parents and children to the same family floater plan. Companies like Cigna TTK offer 10% family discount for 2 members but the rate of discount remains unchanged with more members added to the plan.

    Cumulative Discounts on Premiums:

    If customers pay premiums for a couple of years together at the time of entry, then they can avail premium discounts offered by the insurer. Such premium payments are also beneficial for the companies as they receive lump sums at the time of sale. Generally, companies offer 5% to 10% discounts on the annual premium amount.

    No-claim Bonus:

    During the term of the health policy if an insured person does not make any claims, he/she will be eligible for bonuses in the form of rewards each year. No-claim bonuses continue to add up till the time the insurer makes a claim or its maximum allowable limit is reached. Companies give a progressive increment in the sum assured by a minimum of 5 % and this can be accumulated for a maximum period of 10 years. The no-claim bonus of one company can also be transferred while migrating to a similar policy of different company.

    Participation in Company Profits:

    Some companies provide discounts, vouchers and offers to the insured members as their figures touch a certain value on the profit scale. These vouchers can be used for buying medicines or for receiving treatments in the network hospitals and outlets.

    Reward Points for Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle:

    In a move to attract more customers, most of the insurance companies have started offering wellness rewards to their members who lead a healthy lifestyle. For example, one of the leading insurers in India provides a discount of 25% on premiums, if medical reports of two consecutive tests in a year shows stable health condition.

    Value Added Services:

    These discounts come mostly in the form of free health checkups, OPD packages and other attractive health offers that focus on changing the traditional system of healthcare insurance. One such example is of Religare, that offers a free yearly health checkup to its insured members.

    Discounts for Women:

    Companies LIKE Bajaj Allianz and Reliance General provide reduced premium rates to their female members as part of woman empowerment. These plans come with discounts from 5% to 10% of the total policy premium. Some companies also give out discounts in family floater plans based on the number of female participants.

    Network Discounts:

    Insurance companies create an arrangement of preferred provider organizations where members can get discounts on each treatment received. These discounts are negotiated between healthcare provider and the insurance company. The rates charged by the network hospital can be based on a percentage discount on each of the services offered. Receiving health care treatments through network organization helps the insurer to keep his medical expenses low.

    Bottom Line:

    Health insurance may still sound as a complicated subject to many, but now a large percentage of people understand the long term protection and benefits that come along with health insurance policies. Choosing a good plan that offers maximum benefits will protect you from needless financial commitments and will definitely prove useful at the time of unexpected sickness. Provider discounts are one way of saving your hard earned money, and therefore comparing various plans underscoring their offers and discounts is a good practice.

They have more network of hospitals but they pay more attention on the medical bills.

The payment mode is net banking. The policy coverage was 5L. It was covering almost all diseases, If I use even 5L at one time again they will provide 5L which was very good.
