    • Top health plans for 30 to 45-year-olds with sum assured of Rs.20 lakh

      Health Insurance policies are a necessity to fight rising medical costs. However, there are certain criteria that you must keep in mind when buying a health insurance plan. Factors like premium rates, coverage, cashless hospital network, NCB, etc. Determining the coverage is essential when choosing the right plan. A low coverage amount may be cheap, but it won't cover our medical needs whereas investing in a high coverage plan with riders you don't need may prove to be a waste of money.

      Assess your needs to find the best cover. For individuals aged between 30 years and 45 years, some of the best health policies with a sum assured of RS.20 lakh are ICICI Lombard's Health plan, Apollo Munich's Easy Health Exclusive, Max Bupa's Health Companion plan, and Cigna TTK's ProHealth plan. All these plans offer a wellness program, affordable premium rates, a high claim settlement ration, and a restore benefit option.
