7 Tips to choose a Health Insurance Plan in India

Undeniably, health insurance is one of the most essential insurance policies to have
considering the spike in the occurrence of health problems at an early age, in the current climate. Further, the astronomical medical treatment costs place clear stress on the necessity of having a health insurance policy.

But unfortunately, health insurance in India is the most neglected type of insurance as it doesn’t provide any benefits unless you get sick. While nobody wants to get sick, you must understand that health problems are an undeniable part of our lives. Therefore, it is very important to stay prepared for the financial consequences of a health problem. You cannot plan and get sick, but you can certainly stay financially prepared for the worst.

There are a variety of health plans available in India, from individual plans to family floater and senior citizen health insurance. So, you need to assess your requirements first and then purchase a health plan.

Here are 7 tips to help you choose the best health plan: –

  1. Look for the right coverage

Choose a health plan that secures you against a wide range of medical problems, and provides benefits including pre and post hospitalization, daycare expenses, transportation, illnesses that you may be at risk of due to your family’s medical history, etc. If you are buying health insurance for your family, check whether the policy meets the needs of each member of your family. Consider your requirements, compare plans on benefits and costs, and apply a little due diligence to choose a plan that caters toyour needs.

  1. Keep it affordable

While it is important to buy a health plan that meets your needs, it is equally important that it suits your pocket as well. Budget is a hugely important aspect when buying health insurance. But, you should consider the plan benefits before you consider the price of the plan. It is a wise decision to buy a reasonably priced health cover at the start to ensure you are covered properly and the premiums are also affordable. With time, you can review your plan and increase cover appropriately with the rise of income, family size, and requirements.

  1. Prefer family over individual health plans

Individual plans are good for individuals who do not have a family to support. However, if you are buying health insurance keeping your family in mind, purchase a family health plan to enjoy maximumbenefits at a more affordable price.

  1. Choose a plan with lifetime renewability

When you buy a health plan, make sure to check for how many years the plan will cover you or whether it offers limited renewability or not. Why? Because you will require a health plan the most during the later years of age. So, choose health plans which offer lifetime renewability.

  1. Compare quotes online

You can compare health insurance policies online to ensure that you buy a health plan that caters to your needs. You can even ‘request a quote’ online which means you can enter your details on the website and get an estimated premium for your policy. Collect the best quotes and then compare them to arrive at a decision.

  1. Network hospital coverage

Once you have a selected list of health plans, check whether or not your preferred hospitals and doctors are included in their hospital network. Always prefer an insurance provider that has a wide network of hospitals across the world. With IFFCO-Tokio, you can choose from 5,000+ network hospitals where you can avail quick, convenient and cashless claims settlement!

  1. High claim settlement ratio

The claim settlement ratio is the number of claims settled
by the insurance provider over the total received claims. Always choose an
insurer that has a high claim settlement ratio.
