    SBI Health Insurance FAQs

    1. Is there any age limit for buying a health insurance policy from SBI General, and what’s the maximum tenure available?
    2. The minimum age for buying individual health insurance policies from SBI General is 18 years, and the maximum is 65 years, although children as young as 3 months can be covered under health insurance policies if both parents are enrolled under the same plan.


    3. What is the maximum tenure of health insurance policies from SBI General?
    4. SBI General provides health insurance for 1 year tenure only.


    5. What are family floater policies? How are premiums calculated on it?
    6. Family floater policies are applicable to an individual and his or her immediate family members. The policies can be taken out for up to 4 family members according to respective firm’s norms.

      Premiums are calculated on the basis of the age of the oldest person covered under the policy.


    7. Is it absolutely necessary to get a pre-policy medical checkup done?
    8. A pre-policy health checkup isn’t required for individuals below 45 years of age and who haven’t have any previous major illness. Medical checkup is necessary when:

      • The insured have adverse health history.
      • Customers are above 45 years of age.

      Pre-policy checkups are paid for by the proposer. In case the insurance proposal has been accepted by the insurer, the overall checkup cost will be divided equally between the insured and insurer.


    9. What are the renewal formalities for SBI General health insurance?
    10. Renewal premium has to be paid with the understanding that no new information has become available with respect to the first policy filings. In case the insured has contracted an illness during the last 12 months, the same has to be notified to the insurer as new illnesses may require payment of extra premium.

      Renewal receipts will be accepted only after being duly authorised by a signature of an official of the insurer. If an insured person suppresses facts regarding new illnesses, they will be liable to not get any coverage from the provider.


    11. What about waiting periods for clearing coverages in case of emergencies?
    12. On enrolling with SBI General, typically a 30-day grace period is applicable, wherein the insurer is not entitled to pay for health care expenses, although hospitalization due to accidents are accepted by the insurer. There’s no waiting period during renewal of old policies.


    13. What do you mean by health insurance portability?
    14. In India, pre-existing diseases are generally covered only after a certain period of time has passed during which an individual may have been regularly renewing the policy and paying premiums. Such time bound accrued benefits tend to take a lot of time to come to force (usually 5 years). So portability ensures that if the insured wants to change providers, they can do it without losing said benefits. Health insurance portability allows the carrying-forward of the following accrued benefits:

      • All exclusions that are time bound.
      • Waiting periods for getting disbursements for pre-existing conditions.
      • General waiting tenures.

    15. Why should I look for health insurance portability?
    16. Portability allows policyholders to have safety against loss of coverage or discontinuity due to previous illnesses, in case the insured is planning to shift to a new provider.


    17. Are alternative treatments covered by SBI General Health Insurance?
    18. Alternative medicine treatments such as aromatherapy, reflexology, chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, acupressure, and acupuncture are excluded from health insurance policies from SBI General.


    19. Suppose I buy a health insurance policy today and am unfortunately hospitalized the next week. Will i receive coverage?
    20. No, it is not possible to receive coverage within 30 days of buying a health insurance policy from SBI General. However, you will have continuous coverage at the time of renewal.

The SVP of Marketing and Product Development for SBI General Insurance, Gunjan Ghai said that women go through immense pressure on a day to day basis and it is imperative from them to have health insurance, which includes insurance cover for all diseases including those that are related to the female human body in particular. The overall study showed that women aren’t aware of the critical illnesses, and only 65% of the younger women are aware of these policies. However, only 18% actually buy the same.

    • SBI General Insurance might Raise Foreign Partner's Stake to 49 %

      SBI General Insurance, a joint venture of SBI and the Australian insurance company Insurance Australia Group (IAG), has announced that the agreement between these two companies allows the foreign partner to raise their stakes to 49% once the law permits it. The company currently holds a 26% stake in SBI General Insurance. Under the current law, this is the maximum permissible limit a foreign partner can hold.


      The government’s move to allow foreign investors to increase their stake from 26% percent to 49% has been hailed as encouraging but since the law has not been passed yet, they have to wait before executing plans to increase their stakes. The company has announced that it is looking at a target of Rs.1600 crore in premiums this financial year and is also targeting a growth of 50%. It plans to achieve this target by increasing the number of agents from 6,000 to 10,000. In the current financial year, SBI’s health insurance segment has so far raked in Rs.50 crore in health insurance premiums and hopes to double the amount before the end of the financial year.

      Please be aware customers as when you buy their policy no medical tests are done . Later when you will go and claim medical insurance they will simply reject your claim on the basis of previous medical history. If no medical tests are done then how can they reject by looking at previous medical history and why these things are not intimated to the customers when they are buying the policy. I will suggest to the general customers not to take this policy at all, as I am suffering in my case even after paying my full premium and buying their insurance . They are cheaters.
