Health Insurance Renewal

Every health insurance renewal is valid for a fixed period of 1, 2 or 3 years. Beyond this tenure, the policy needs to be renewed. Renewal of health insurance is a must to continue to enjoy the benefits of the policy cover. The health insurance policy that you have purchased can be renewed through the portal of your health insurance provider or InsuranceDekho.

  2. A minimum of 15 days grace period is given from the expiry date to renew the policy. 
  3. However, it’s good to renew it before the expiry date. 
  4. If the policy lapses, you will lose ‘no claim bonus’ and waiting period benefits.
  5. Check the availability of after-sales customer support offered by the insurer.

Health Insurance Renewal FAQs

Q 1. Can I renew my health insurance policy after the expiry date?

Generally, a minimum of 15 days of the grace period is given after the expiry date. However, if you fail to renew within this period due to negligence, you will need to buy a new policy. If you have earned any bonuses on our previous policy, this bonus will be taken back. But, you will have to go through a waiting period of 2 to 4 years.  

Q 2. Will I get reminders for the policy renewal before the expiry date?

Yes, depending on the insurance company you have chosen, you will get reminders for the renewal via email or text message. But, the insurers are not obliged to do so. You are solely responsible for renewing your policy on time.

Q 3. Is it possible to modify my add-on covers while renewing health insurance policy?

Yes. You have an option to opt-in or opt-out add-on covers while renewing your health insurance policy.

Q 4. How long does online renewal of a health insurance policy take?

As soon as you fill your details and make the payment, the policy will be renewed and sent to your registered email id.
