    The Importance of a Health Insurance

    The current COVID-19 pandemic has made the entire world sit up and realise that medical emergencies are unpredictable and can cause a financial upheaval that is tough to handle. People have started to understand the importance of a health insurance plan with the arising medical costs. Apart from this, access to good medical facility and hospitalisation can be a financial burden for many. Therefore, one must know the benefits of a health insurance policy that can provide the added long-term protection in times like these. Even though while having the financial confidence to take care of your loved ones, a health insurance plan is extremely useful when it comes to beating medical inflation.
    Here are 5 recommended reasons why you need to get a Health Insurance plan today:

    1. To fight lifestyle diseases

    Lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity, respiratory problems, heart disease are on rise - especially among the people under the age of 45. Lack of healthy lifestyle, stress, pollution, leading an undisciplined life may cause such complications. Even though you follow precautionary measures, an unfortunate incident to face a sudden high hospital expenditure will be a tough phase to get through. Therefore investing in a Mediclaim Policy that covers regular medical tests can be a kick-start to cope up with medical expenses, leaving you stress-free.

    2. To safeguard your family members

    While you opt for a highly beneficial insurance policy, you should always choose to secure the whole family with insurance plan that would suit your requirements (i.e) if you have a suitable medical insurance, you need not stress about getting the best and the advanced treatment. In such a case, a basic plan along with a top-up plan would be ideal. Also, a health insurance company will always provide professional counselling for you to choose the plan in which you would have the maximum benefit.

    3. To deal with pre and post-hospitalisation conditions

    Apart from the cost of treatment, your medical bill would also include the expense of pre and post hospitalisation conditions. The costs for doctor’s consultation, diagnosis tests, ambulance charges, operation theatre costs, medicines, room rent, etc. are simultaneously increasing. All of these could put an additional strain on your finances if you fail to have a suitable health insurance cover. By paying an affordable health insurance premium each year, you can beat the burden of medical inflation while opting for quality treatment.

    4. To protect your savings

    While an unexpected illness can lead to mental stress, there is another side you need to think about - the expenses. By purchasing a health insurance policy, you are transferring your risk to the insurance company while the insurer manages a pool of people to help them with their medical expenses. Additionally, a health insurance lets you avail tax benefits, which further increases your savings. In short, you can manage your medical expenses without dripping your savings off.

    5. Insure early to stay secured

    Having a medical insurance early in life has numerous benefits. When you buy a health cover early in life, you can avail plans at lower rates and you can enjoy the continuity benefits as well. Additionally, you will be offered extensive coverage options by the health insurance company.

    How to select the right Health Insurance policy?

    Here are some tips that would help you to choose the right insurance cover for you and your family:
    • Look for a contingency plan as a solution for any exigencies, with add-on benefits / talk to the insurance consultant to get a clear view on the policy.
