Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on Health Insurance in India
Ques. I want to take health Insurance policy for my sister who has paralysis. Which company should I approach? What is the process involved?
Ans. In our opinion you must disclose that paralysis is pre-existing. All insurance companies will consider this proposal and most will issue the policy by mentioning that paralysis is pre-existing disease. As a consequence any treatment due to this disease or as a result of this disease will not be payable during next 4 years.
You may even be asked to pay extra premium in the form of loading.
Generally pre-existing diseases are covered after a period of four years, so in this case paralysis will be covered after the said period.
Ques. I want to take health Insurance policy for my sister who has paralysis. Which company should I approach? What is the process involved?
Ans. You can take Oriental’s Happy Family Floater policy in which you would be able to cover your daughter along with you and your wife. You will have to take individual policy for your son as his age is above 25 years and is not to be considered as your dependent. You can take Oriental’s Individual policy for your son. The premium for Rs. 5 lakh of cover would sum up to Rs. 18,670. You will have to bear co-payment of 10% when lodging a claim.
If you increase the sum assured to Rs. 6 lakhs, there is no co-payment. The premium for Rs. 6 lakhs cover will sum up to Rs. 23,630.
