Ques. Sir, I am having a family Health Insurance policy with National Insurance. My self and wife is insured with Rs. 1 lakh each and one daughter with Rs. 0.50 lakh. On my policy I am availing Bonus of 25% as on date. I would like to convert this policy in January 2009 when it becomes due for renewal in to the family floater. My question is weather the policy can be transferred into the family floater and bonus will be continued. The benefit of the family floater as old policy holder will be available to me or not.
Ans Most probably bonus benefit will not be available. You will have to forget the benefits of old policy. You will be happier with family floater policy as it is economical for you.
Ques. Do I receive a discount if I buy the policy for my entire family together?
Ans Yes if it is normal policy with sum mentioned against the name of every family member – then you are eligible for discount of 10% for more than 2 persons. But in case you go for family floater then premium itself will be lower-may lower by 25%. No discount will be mentioned or given to you separately.
Ques. If a claim has been made for a particular ailment; does it become a pre-existing disease for the next policy term?
Ans No, if you continue with the same insurance company. But if you go to a new company then it will be treated as a preexisting one and it becomes non payable.

Ans Generally- yes you can get no claim bonus if you can prove that you did not lodge any claim for last few years.
Ques. I have an impression that the health insurance sector is not regulated in India. If you have a policy and take a claim then next time the insurance companies denies the extension of the policy or minimum they do is to charge very hefty premium. In that case what is the fun in taking medical insurance?
Ans. IRDA is doing a wonderful job in regulating insurance industry of this country. You might have had bad experience with a company. Generally it does not happen. But if you lodge claims in 2 successive years- then you will face difficulty.
