Health Insurance

In a Health Insurance policy, the insurer guarantees to compensate for medical expenses when the insured needs medical treatment (illness or accident) or hospitalization.

Why do you need health insurance?

Health is wealth and when health deteriorates, so does wealth. Medical treatment costs are exponentially increasing day by day, especially in private hospitals and nursing homes. Health insurance not only helps one to cover these expenses but also brings down the stress in such medical catastrophes. Health insurance has become a necessity these days, especially when one has aged parents or young kids in the family. It should form a crucial part of one’s financial planning and funds allocation.

The premium for health insurance or Mediclaim is a small investment for a peaceful and healthy life.

    When travelling abroad, we make an exhaustive list of things to do and carry – appropriate clothes, forex, camera, food and whatnot. However, one important thing that is mostly ignored is Travel Insurance. This may seem like an unnecessary cost. However, in reality, it is an important investment, especially if there is a medical crisis or any such eventuality.

    This insurance protects travellers from unexpected medical costs or other travel-related emergencies in a foreign land. Many countries have made medical insurance a prerequisite for granting visas to visitors.

    Things to keep in mind while selecting a travel insurance partner

    • One must ensure that the insurance policy is compatible or applicable to the region or place of travel. For instance, if the insured is travelling to any place covered under the Schengen Visa, one must check if the policy is valid in that region.
    • It is important to be aware of the sub-limits in the policy. In many categories, the policy permits the insured to claim up to a specified limit. One must check if there are limits per claim or per incident.
    • All travel policies have a set of exclusions. It is advisable to check what all situations are not included in the scope of the policy. These are the general exclusions:
      • Pre-existing ailments
      • Communal or civil violence, riots, war, etc.
      • Self-caused injuries including suicide
      • Accidents caused due to adventure sports or other such dangerous activities
      • Travel against doctor’s orders 
      • Travel for the purpose of medical treatments
    • The insured should be aware of the process and the timeframe within which the claim needs to be made.
