    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.

    Your Premium for Health Insurance is determined by

    01
    Your current age

    Lower premium for younger buyers.

    02
    Members included

    The premium depends on the number of insured members.

    03
    Room preference

    Your room preference during hospitalization matters (such as shared room, private room or private room with high-end facilities) Remember costlier room means higher treatment charges too!

    04
    Pre-existing medical condition

    Your premium will depend on any pre-existing medical conditions.

    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.

    • Micro-insurance products to be distributed via PoS

      The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has announced that micro-insurance products would be distributed through point-of-sales (PoS). This move aims to enhance the reach of micro-insurance policies among the economically vulnerable segments of the population. A micro-insurance product is essentially a life or general insurance policy with a coverage of up to Rs.50,000. Henceforth, the prefix ‘PoS’ would be removed from the names of micro-insurance products that are sold this way, whether they are general, health, or life insurance policies. In the case of personal accident or health insurance policies where the coverage exceeds that listed in the PoS guidelines, the fees will still be paid to the PoS by the sponsoring entity.
