Key factors to consider before buying Health Insurance

Co-pay

Co-pay is a fixed percentage of the hospital bill you will have to pay when you make a claim, while the balance will be paid by the insurance company. For e.g. If your policy has a 10% Co-Pay clause, it means for a Rs 1,000 claim, you have to pay Rs 100 while the insurer will pay Rs 900. Ideally, opt for a "no co-pay" plan so you don't have to shell out for every claim.

Waiting Period for Pre-existing Diseases

Pre-existing diseases are classified as diseases/conditions that a person has before buying health insurance. All pre-existing diseases aren't covered from day one of buying the policy. The time taken to cover pre-existing diseases will vary from plan to plan. Check the amount of time taken to cover pre-existing diseases in your plan.

Lifelong Renewable

The duration of coverage is the most important factor in buying a health insurance policy. Your health is most likely going to deteriorate only in your sunset years so ensure that your coverage is lifelong and not for a few years. Always go for a plan that can be renewed lifelong.

Room Rent

Your room preference during hospitalization matters (such as shared room, private room or private room with high-end facilities). A costlier room means you'll pay higher treatment and hospitalization charges! It's better if your plan has a higher room rent limit per day.

Smart buying tips for your Health Insurance

01
Assess Your needs

You can't choose your relatives. Luckily, you can decide which family members to include in your health insurance policy. The second important thing is your room preference during hospitalization such as shared room, private room or private room with high-end facilities.

02
Extra-Coverage for Critical Illness

A smart health insurance policy is one that covers you for bolts out of the blue - medical expenses for critical illnesses like cancer, stroke etc.

03
Know Your Budget

Consider your budget in order to avoid a huge premium. Don't pick all the options available under the insurance policy. This will eventually increase your premium amount. So tighten your purse strings sensibly.

04
Read the Fine-Print

The devil is in the details. Always read the "Terms & Conditions" of the policy i.e. features that are not covered under the policy. Make it a point to ask for sample policy wordings. With the in-depth knowledge about certain definitions, terms & conditions, exclusions and offered benefits, you'll always be the smarty-pants who's one step ahead.

  • Commission and rewards for health insurance to be reduced

    A health insurance agent gets 15% of the annual premium while an insurance broker receives 17.5%. This commission is part of the premium paid by a customer. But, in the near future, the commission is standardised for both the agent and the broker and will be capped at 15%. The new rule removes any distinguishing factors between agent and broker. Instead, the new rule promotes insurers to pay rewards instead of commissions. But, these rewards cannot exceed 30% of the commission that’s paid to the insurance intermediaries or insurance agents. Founder of myinsuranceclub.com, Deepak Yohannan, stated that these new changes would not lead to an increase in premiums since the cost of acquiring new customers does not fundamentally change.

  • Health schemes covering only 10% of rural Assam’s households

    According to a survey conducted by the National Family Health Survey-4 (2015-2016), only 10.4% of the households belonging to the rural district of Assam have at least one family member who is covered by a health scheme or is covered by an insurance policy.

This is an improvement from the last survey done in Assam, jumping from 2.3% to 10.4%. Urban Assam fared poorly too with only 12.6% of households being covered by health insurance schemes.

  • Incentives to make health insurance universal in India

    TS Vijayan, the Chairman of the IRDAI said that people who are not inclined to take risks with regards to health insurance, have to be wooed through incentives and discount offers. Free health checkups and other discounts will have to be offered to non-risk takers to induce them to buy health insurance. According to Narendra Bhooshan, linking aadhaar with health insurance will be beneficial for the health insurance market. The aadhaar integration process will enable easy identification of beneficiaries, processing of claims, and reimbursement of medical expenses. Digitisation of the health insurance sector is expected to boost the health care system in India.
