What is Health Insurance

WHAT IS HEALTH INSURANCE?

Health insurance or medical insurance is an insurance product that provides coverage for medical expenses in the event of an illness or injury. Health insurance plans safeguard your hard-earned funds from being spent on expenses related to hospitalization, medicines, consultation and more. A health insurance policy can also be viewed as an agreement between you and your health insurance company that binds them to cover you financially in case of any medical emergency.

There are several types of health insurance in India. And, you should choose the best health insurance policy for yourself and your family so that you can relax when it comes to paying hefty medical bills. You not only get covered for the medical expenses with your plan, but also get facilities such as cashless treatment and quality health care at a reputed network hospital.

 

WHAT IS THE NEED FOR HEALTH INSURANCE IN 2022?

An effective medical insurance policy is essential because the prices of medicines and hospital treatments are rising day by day. If an accident or critical illness befalls you, it will cause a huge financial burden on you and your family. A hard-hitting truth is that whether your trip to hospital is planned or it comes as an unpleasant surprise, it is sure to cost you heavily. So, it’s better to have the protection of a health insurance policy, that besides helping you manage your finances, also offers you several other benefits at very affordable premium rates.

Types of Health Insurance in India

Buying a health insurance policy is important. Yet, there are times when people are reluctant to buy an appropriate cover. Often people get confused between different types of health insurance policies in India.

When buying medical insurance it is important to choose a health cover that fulfills their needs. Let us start by understanding the key differences between individual and family floater health insurance policies:

Point of Comparison

Individual Health Insurance Policy

Family Floater Health Insurance

Definition

Individual health insurance is the type of health insurance plan where the proposer and family members can be covered in the same plan. However, the sum insured is separate (not shared) for each insured member in an individual health insurance policy.

Family floater health insurance is the type of health insurance where multiple family members can be covered under one plan. It means that the sum insured is shared amongst all family members in one plan.

Sum Insured

The sum insured will be separate for each insured member.

The entire family gets covered under one sum insured

Coverage

The health insurance benefit is extended to the primary insured member and dependent family members that include self, spouse, children, parents, parents-in-law, sister, brother, grandchildren, aunt, uncle. However, each insured member will have a sum insured of their own.

The health insurance benefit is extended to the primary insured member and dependent family members that include spouse and dependent children, dependent parents.

Premium

Since, in an individual health insurance policy, the sum insured is separate for each family member the premium is the determining basis of the sum insured, coverage opted and each member’s age.

This type of health insurance plan is cost-effective as it is one premium paid for all the members of the family. Premium is decided according to the age of the eldest member covered under the plan.

Avoid These Mistakes While Buying a Medical Insurance Policy

There are chances you might think that buying a health insurance policy is not much important. Here is a rundown of the common things that we often think about:

  • Skipping a Comprehensive Health Cover Due to Your Corporate Policy

    If you think that only a corporate health insurance policy is enough to secure the medical expenses then you are mistaken. A corporate health insurance policy will cover you only for the job term. So whenever you leave the job or switch companies, you lose the health insurance benefits. Some companies do not offer health insurance coverage during probation. Corporate health insurance usually offers low sum insured and does not provide comprehensive coverage. Hence, it is recommended to choose a comprehensive health insurance policy

  • Opting for a Low Sum Insured

    In case you live in a metro city, it is advised to choose a high sum insured considering the medical treatment in such cities is higher. Only buying health insurance with insufficient coverage is of no use in the long run. Select a sum insured that covers the medical expenses, as per the requirements. In case you have immediate dependents then opt for a health insurance plan, assessing their needs, medical inflation, and likewise choose the sum insured.

  • Choosing a Low-cost Plan Without Assessing Coverage

    Do not buy a health insurance plan just because it is offering a low premium. It is important to look at the coverage and benefits that medical insurance is offering. This aspect should not be neglected at any cost. In case you buy a health insurance plan with a low premium, there are chances that you are missing out on critical coverage. Choose a health insurance plan that is value for money and takes care of the rising medical needs considering the lifestyle we lead. 

  • Buying Health Insurance Solely for Tax

    Remember, having a comprehensive health insurance policy is more than saving taxes. A health insurance plan surely lets’ you avail of the tax benefit under Section 80D of the Income Tax Act. However, you should have medical insurance in place so that you are worry-free in critical times at least financial. In case your family is to be taken care of, choose a family floater health insurance policy.

Eligibility Criteria for Health Insurance in India

When it comes to buying a health insurance policy in India, several factors are to be taken care of. The table below shows the common eligibility criteria that are taken into consideration while selecting a health insurance plan in India:

 

Age criteria Age is an important aspect that should be considered while buying a medical insurance plan. A health plan can be bought for children, adults, and senior citizens.

 


There are dedicated plans as per the age of the individual. Usually, a normal health insurance plan covers an individual aged between 18-65 years of age. Next, you have senior citizens' health insurance plans catering to the needs of people who are 60 years of age and above.
Pre-existing Diseases A pre-existing disease is covered only after the completion of the waiting period. While buying the health insurance policy, the insurer asks the applicant about the current medical condition such as kidney problem, blood pressure, etc. 
Smoking Habit Lifestyle habit also has an important role in the process of buying. If you are a non-smoker then compared to a smoker the health insurance premium is relatively low
Medical Check-ups The medical check-ups are a part specifically if you are aged between 45 years of age and above. So  before the medical insurance policy is issued, individuals have to undergo a medical screening

 

Factors That Affect Your Health Insurance Premium

Certain factors determine the premium of your health insurance policy such as:

  • ✓   Selected Sum Insured : Your health insurance premium also depends upon the coverages opted by you and the Sum Insured selected by you, as per your health insurance needs.

  • ✓   Number of members covered : Your health insurance premium changes as you include more number of members to be insured like in the family floater health insurance plans.

  • ✓   Age : Young people are healthier than older people and the risk associated with them is less. So, the premium is lower if you purchase a health insurance policy when you are young.

  • ✓   Body mass index (BMI) : Your BMI is the ratio of your height and weight. If your BMI is beyond the normal limit, then you might have to pay higher health insurance premium.

  • ✓   Medical history : You might have to pay a higher premium if a certain illness runs in your family or if you have some complex medical history.

  • ✓   Tobacco consumption : Your premium cost might be on the higher side if you smoke or chew tobacco and tobacco related products.

  • ✓   Gender : Women might be required to pay higher premium than men as they tend to have more number of hospital visits.

The biggest impact on your medical insurance policy premium, however, is the health insurance coverage that comes with it. The wider the coverage, the steeper your health insurance quotes.

To register a health insurance claim, you need to submit your hospital bills and medical records related to the treatment received to your health insurance company. Once these documents are verified, the claim amount will be settled in your registered bank account.

  • Planned hospitalization

    If you have to undergo a planned medical procedure like cataract surgery, which is covered in your health insurance policy, then you can use cashless claim facility to get the surgery done without having to pay anything. All you need to do is fill out a pre-authorization form at the network hospital and they will send this form to your health insurance provider, who will verify the required details and give approval for cashless treatment.

  • Emergency hospitalization

    In case of an emergency like accident, you can use your health card provided by your health insurance company and submit it along with the pre-authorization letter.

What is a Mediclaim Policy?

We are aware that medical emergencies mostly come unannounced and in case you do not have health insurance in place then you would end up paying hefty medical bills. Despite the rising healthcare expenses people do not cover themselves or their families with a suitable mediclaim policy.

Mediclaim policy is the insurance cover that shields against the increasing medical expenses that might incur due to hospitalization. A mediclaim insurance financially protects in case of hospitalization due to an illness/accident. Mediclaim policy benefits can be easily exercised by paying the premiums timely.

 

Common Health Insurance Terms You Should Be Aware Of

  •   1

    Sum Insured (SI): Sum Insured is the maximum amount that your health insurance company is liable to pay if you are hospitalized. If the expenses of your medical treatment exceed the Sum Insured opted by you, then you will have to pay the amount over the Sum Insured on your own. Thus, you should opt for health insurance plans with a higher Sum Insured.

  •   2

    Pre-existing diseases: If you are suffering from an ailment before buying a health insurance policy, then that ailment come under pre-exiting diseases category.

  •   3

    Waiting period: It is the time span that you need to wait before some or all of the coverage for your health insurance policy begins. For e.g. many health insurance policies have a fixed waiting period before they provide coverage for pre-existing diseases.

  •   4

    Sub-limits: Sub-limits are caps that your health insurance providers place in order to restrict the expenses that they need to pay for a particular condition. This is mainly done to reduce the fraud claim cases. Most of the health insurance companies have sub-limits on room rents, common ailments, pre-planned procedures, ambulance expenses and doctor’s fees. Sub-limit can be a fixed percentage of the Sum Insured opted by you or a fixed amount as agreed between you and your health insurance company.

  •   5

    Co-payment: Co-payment or Co-pay is the fixed percentage of the claim amount that you need to pay for your health related expenses before your insurance company pays for the same. Co-pay is decided by you when you buy or renew your health insurance policy. A higher co-pay can help you reduce your premium amount.

  •   6

    Deductible: Deductible is the concept of cost sharing between you and your insurance company for paying for your health care expenses. It is a fixed amount that you need to pay every time you make a health insurance claim. High deductible health insurance plans can be beneficial for you, if your visits to a doctor/hospital are less frequent. Also, having high deductible health insurance plans can help you lower your premium amount.

  •   7

    Room rent limit: Room rent limit is the maximum coverage your health insurance policy provides you for per day room charges, in case you are admitted to a hospital.

  •   8

    Coinsurance: If you have multiple health insurance policies, then you can file a health insurance claim with all of them and you will be reimbursed the claim amount by all the health insurance companies, as per fixed percentage decided by you. This concept is called coinsurance. So, if you decide the coinsurance between two health insurance companies (A and B) as 40% and 60% respectively, then on a claim of INR 1 lakh, company A will reimburse INR 40,000 to you and company B will reimburse INR 60,000 to you, as per the terms and conditions of your health insurance policies.

  •   9

    Free look period: Health insurance companies offer a free look period of 15 days to you. In this period you can check out your health insurance policy and decide whether it is best suited for you. If you think that it not an adequate medical insurance plan for you, then you can cancel this medical insurance policy within 15 days. No cancellation charges will be applicable if you cancel the policy within 15 days. However, you will be charged a premium for the number of days you took to take the decision.

  • 10

    Grace period: After the expiry of your health insurance policy, you have a time span of 30 days for renewing your health insurance policy. This 30 day period is the grace period. If you renew your policy in these 30 days, then you will get the benefits of your health insurance policy like waiting period, coverage for pre-existing diseases etc. reinstated. But, you will not be covered for any claims you make during the grace period.

Difference Between Health Insurance & Mediclaim Insurance

One of the common mistakes that often tend to commit is that mediclaim and health insurance are synonymous. Let us understand the differences between health insurance and mediclaim insurance:

 

Parameters Health Insurance Mediclaim Policy
Coverage A health insurance plan offers cover for hospitalization, pre & post expenses, ambulances charges, etc. Offers cover for hospitalization, accident-related treatment & up to a pre-determined limit the pre-existing diseases
Flexibility It offers the flexibility to enhance the plan by paying a nominal premium As such in terms of coverage, it offers no flexibility
Add-on Cover Offers multiple add-on covers No add-on covers are offered
Critical Illness Cover It offers cover for more than 10 life-threatening diseases No cover for critical illness

Benefits of Buying Medical Insurance at Early Age

Buying medical insurance at an early age will be much more beneficial and you would need not take stress about paying medical bills. When you start earning early, it's important to save for the future. You would not want to get your finances drained

Here is a rundown of the benefits of buying medical insurance at an early age:

  • Offers comprehensive coverage for any health emergency that can incur that otherwise would leave in financial distress
  • In case of any pre-existing disease, you can simply wait out the waiting period early and not compromise your health
  • At a young age, you are less likely to fall ill and get prone to disses. The health insurance premiums are cost-effective and make it worth the investment.
  • The tax benefit under Section 80D enables to save on income and direct the fund towards a secured future planning
  • Health insurance plans provide a cumulative bonus which helps increase your sum insured for each claim-free year. Since you would be buying health insurance early on, the chances of filing a claim may be lower. This could help avail a higher sum insured in the long run
  • You have wider health coverage options along with add-on riders. It makes the health insurance plan more comprehensive.

When you are young you are less vulnerable to any chronic illness or diseases. Having said it, it is wise to make a financial investment when you are young and healthy. It lets you enjoy significant benefits throughout life.

Health is indeed the biggest wealth. With the sedentary lifestyle, rising pollution, etc. health is a major concern. Having a comprehensive health insurance policy will help to take care of the medical treatment expenses during an emergency.

Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Health Insurance policy helps you save tax up to INR 1 lakh under Section 80D against the premiums you pay. Here’s how you can save tax:
On the premiums you pay for yourself, your spouse, children and parents, you can avail INR 25,000 per annum as a deduction against your taxes (provided you are not over 60 years). If you pay a premium for your parents who are senior citizens (age 60 or above), the maximum health insurance benefit for tax purposes is capped at INR 50,000. As a taxpayer, you may, therefore, maximize tax benefit under Section 80D up to a total of INR 75,000, if you are below 60 years of age and your parents are senior citizens. If you are above the age of 60 years and are paying a medical insurance premium for your parents, the maximum tax benefit under Section 80D is, then, INR 1 lakh.

   Who is eligible to purchase health insurance?

You can purchase a health insurance policy in India, if you are an Indian citizen and above 18 years of age. If you are a minor (below 18 years of age), then your parents can cover you under their any medical insurance plans.

   What is covered by health insurance?

Health insurance covers you for hospitalization expenses including pre & post hospitalization expenses, doctor’s consultation fees and in-patient expenses.

   I’ve already invested in life insurance. Do I still need Health Insurance?

Life insurance is a great investment and death cover option but it won’t come in handy to pay rising medical bills. A Health Insurance cover is a solution to deal with hospitalization and pay heavy medical expenses, should they arise. So, Health Insurance plans are your cover against unexpected health-related costs that may threaten to deplete your savings.
