5 Major Reasons to buy Family Health Insurance Plan
1. Financial Security
Investing in a good family healthcare plan makes sure that your financial commitments are reduced in the event of a tough healthcare situation. Availing medical treatment for certain health emergencies can deeply impact your financial stability, offsetting your plans. With changing lifestyles, we are exposed to severe diseases and illnesses. In such events, gathering funds could get difficult and that is when health insurance cover comes in handy. Your health insurance plan will allow you to cover the costs of hospitalisation expenses, treatment costs, domiciliary expenses, ambulance charges, and more depending on the type of your policy.
2. Peace of Mind
Investing in a health insurance policy ensures that the medical expenses of your loved ones are secured, giving you peace of mind. When you and your family are financially secure, there is more peace of mind in your recovery process.
3. Quality treatment
All your family members can avail quality healthcare under a family health insurance plan, providing cashless hospitalisation in Network Hospitals across multiple cities in India. One can get treatment at a hospital of their choice.
4. Increasing healthcare costs
The stark reality of today is that everything is getting expensive, including healthcare. The average cost of healthcare has soared steadily, making certain treatments uneconomical to the common man. A good family health insurance plan can ensure that all members of the family get the best treatment without suffering the loss of savings.
5. Tax Exemption
The insured can enjoy tax benefits on the premiums paid towards a health insurance policy under Section 80D of the Income Tax Act, 1961. And if you pay the health insurance premiums for yourself as well as for your family, then the deductions can be clubbed together and can avail tax deductions every year.
