FAQs

 

What is the difference between a family floater and critical illness or hospital cash insurance?

The individual or family floater health insurance works on the principle of indemnity. This means that these insurance policies will pay you only what you have spent for medical treatment in hospital. On the other hand, the critical illness or the hospital cash insurance pays you the amount insured, irrespective of the amount spent for medical treatment. These are a benefit based policies.

 

How would I benefit by buying health insurance at a young age?

Health insurance premium tends to increase with age - more the age, higher the premium.

You can be covered for medical conditions that may be diagnosed over the years provided there is no break in the policy.

In addition, each 'no claim’ year would fetch you a discount on your premium or an increase in your sum insured amount at no extra cost. The treatment in case of ‘no-claim’ bonus varies from company to company.

Lastly, income tax benefit under Section 80 D of the Income Tax Act.

 

How does the Auto recharge work?

We will automatically recharge the sum insured, in case the sum insured and any no claim bonus accumulated is exhausted during the policy year. The sum insured will be recharged once in a policy year. Recharge Sum Insured can be used for future claims and not against an illness/disease (including its complications) for which a claim has already been made in the current policy year.

 

Does the plan cover pre-existing diseases?

Pre-existing diseases/illness/injury/conditions will be covered post 24 months of continuous cover depending upon the plan opted.

Such waiting period shall reduce if the insured has been covered under a similar policy before opting for this policy, subject however to portability regulations.

 

How do you decide if a disease is a pre-existing one or not?

At the time of buying a health insurance you need to provide details of the illnesses you have suffered during your lifetime. The insurer refers such cases to their medical panel to differentiate between pre-existing and newly contracted illnesses.
