Factors that affect premiums of Star Health Insurance

Premiums of Star health insurance plans depend on a lot of factors which affect the premium calculation. These factors and their respective effects on premium calculation are as follows –

  • Age 

    Your age determines your Star health insurance premium. The older you are the higher would be the health risk because health conditions set in as you age. Thus, premiums depend on age and the older you are the higher would be the applicable premium rates.

  • Sum insured chosen

    Since sum insured determines the risk which is insured, it directly affects your health insurance premium. The higher the sum insured level you choose the higher would be the premium rate and vice-versa.

  • Number of members to be insured

    If you include more than one member under the coverage, additional premium would be payable for each covered member. Thus, the number of members covered under the plan also determines the premium rate. The more the insured members the higher would be the premium and vice-versa

  • Age of insured members

    Just as your age determines the premium so does the age of the insured members. Family floater plans calculate the premium based on the age of the eldest member. Thus, the age of the insured members directly impacts the premium. The higher the age the higher would be the premium and vice-versa.

  • Location 

    Many Star health insurance plans have a premium classification for the city wherein you live. There are three or four types of area classification – Zone 1 cities, Zone 1a cities, Zone 2 cities and Zone 3 cities. Thus, the city in which you live would also determine the premium payable.

  • Existing health conditions

    If you suffer from a pre-existing medical condition and the condition is severe, the health insurance premium would be increased.

  • Policy duration

    Many Star health insurance plans offer coverage durations of two or three continuous years. If you choose a long term coverage period, you have to pay the aggregate premium at once and you can also enjoy a premium discount. Thus, depending on the coverage duration chosen, the premium is calculated.

  • Riders selected

    Some Star health insurance plans have optional coverage benefits which you can add to your base policy. However, these coverage benefits come at an additional cost and if you choose such riders, the premium would increase.

  • Applicable discounts

    Star health insurance plans allow attractive premium discounts for adding family members, for choosing a voluntary co-payment, for buying the policy online or simply for choosing long term coverage duration. If these discounts are available, you can opt for them and reduce the premium amount.
