What is Health Insurance?

Health insurance is an agreement wherein an insurance company agrees to compensate the insured for the medical and surgical expenses incurred during the policy tenure. The medical expenses may incur if the insured falls ill, or meets an accident that leads to hospitalisation of the insured. To be eligible to avail coverage benefits under the policy, the policyholder is required to pay a specific amount periodically, known as premium. Health insurance premium is decided by an insurance company and policyholders are required to pay the same on a monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly basis, without any lapse, to avoid losing the renewal benefits.

Usually, health insurance plans keep you protected for in-patient hospitalisation expenses pre-hospitalisation and post-hospitalisation expenses, ambulance expenses, domiciliary hospitalisation expenses, daycare procedures, organ donor expenses, treatments taken under AYUSH systems of medicines, etc.
  • Lifetime Renewability

  • Portability

    Health insurance portability allows the policyholders to switch from their existing health insurance company to another, in case they are not satisfied with their existing health insurance plan, or find a more suitable plan. Portability feature saves the policyholders from being taken for granted and offers them flexibility to switch in case of dissatisfaction.

How To File A Health Insurance Claim?

Claim under a health insurance policy can be made in two ways - in a cashless manner and in a reimbursement manner. A cashless claim is when you receive treatment at a network hospital of the insurance provider who is servicing your policy. If the claim request is accepted, the insurance company directly settles the bills at the hospital. Whereas in reimbursement claims, you are required to pay for the hospital bill from your own pocket first, and make a claim request with the insurance company later. The insurance company will process your claim and reimburse you for the same after accepting the claim. You can make a health insurance claim by following the simple steps given below:

  • Step 1: Visit the network hospital or the hospital of your choice and inform the insurance company about the hospitalisation.
  • Step 2: Fill the pre-authorization form at the hospital’s TPA (third-party administrator) desk.
  • Step 3: You will receive an approval letter by the claim management team.
  • Step 4: Respond to the query raised by the claim management team, if any.
  • Step 5: Avail the required medical treatment.
  • Step 6: The insurance company will directly settle the bills at the network hospital as per the terms and conditions mentioned in your policy.

  • 3

    Why should I buy a health insurance policy?

    How is health insurance premium determined?

    Different health insurance plans have different premiums. The insurance companies determine premiums after considering various factors that are explained below: 

    1. Type of Insurance Plan: Your health insurance premium is based on the type of plan you choose. If you choose a critical illness insurance plan, then the premium will be high. If you choose an individual health insurance policy, then the premium will be different from that of a family floater plan. To know the difference in health insurance premiums, you can use InsuranceDekho’s health insurance premium calculator.  

    2. Age of the Insured: With age, you become more prone to health issues and are more likely to make health insurance claims. Therefore, you are required to pay higher premiums if you buy health insurance plans in later stages of life. This is why it is recommended to buy health insurance policy when young. 

    3. Policy Term: Most health insurance plans come for a period of 1 year, 2 years, or 3 years. Greater the policy term you choose, the greater will be your coverage, and hence higher will be your health insurance premium, and vice versa. 

    4. Lifestyle Habits: If you drink alcohol or smoke regularly, then you may be denied health insurance completely. However, there are some insurance companies that cover you for the same, for which they charge high premiums. This is because, with these lifestyle habits, you are more prone to health issues.   

    5. Family Medical History: Before deciding your health insurance premium, the insurance company will ask about your family medical history. This is because if someone in your family has a certain disease that you are also vulnerable to, then the insurance company will charge you a higher premium due to increased risk.  

    6. Sum Insured: Health insurance plans come with different sum insured options that you can choose from as per your budget and requirement. The higher the sum insured, the higher the medical coverage and hence higher the health insurance premium. But it is not recommended to compromise on the sum insured to save on premiums. This is because it will not cover you adequately in the time of need.

    Can I cancel my health insurance policy? If yes, will I get a refund for the same?

    Yes. You can cancel your health insurance policy. Every health insurance company provides you a free look period to understand the policy terms and conditions. During this period, if you find any objectionable clause in your health insurance policy, then you can cancel the policy and ask for a refund. Note that you will receive the refund only if no claim has been made during the policy term. The amount of refund will be calculated after taking into consideration the expenses incurred on medical check-ups, stamp duty, and proportionate risk premium, i.e. the number of days you have been covered for risks under the policy. To know more about a premium refunds, it is recommended to go through the policy document.

    How can I renew my health insurance policy?

    Step 1: Visit the website of the insurance company and navigate to the ‘Health Insurance Renewal’ page.
    Step 2: Enter the required details such as health insurance policy number and the registered mobile number.

    What if my health insurance policy lapses when I am hospitalised?

    There can be two situations. First, where you get hospitalised before the policy expiry date and notify the insurance company before the policy lapses, and the policy lapses when you are still in the hospital. In the second situation, you may be hospitalised during the grace period, the policy lapses then, and you inform the insurance company about the same during the grace period. In both cases, the insurance company will compensate for the coverage availed, as per the terms and conditions stated in the policy document. 

  • 10

    Can I avail coverage benefits if I get hospitalised for less than 24 hours?

    Yes. Most health insurance plans cover you for medical treatments that do not require hospitalisation of at least 24 hours. These are known as daycare procedures. Daycare treatments are performed under local or general anaesthesia in a clinic, hospital, or daycare center. Some daycare treatments that health insurance plans cover you for are chemotherapy, eye surgery, sinusitis, dialysis, angiography, etc.
