How many family Person will cover in single policy?

This is main question arise when we buying a family floater best health insurance in India that how many person in a family will cover in single policy?  It is important know normally in floater policy Husband, wife, & up to 4 child will cover in single policy.  The dependent Child age will vary company to company like ICICI Lombard Health Insurance offers maximum age of dependent child is 20 years, Religare Health Insurance Company & Apollo Munich Health Insurance Company Ltd offers dependent child age is 24 years, Star Health & Allied General lnsurance Company Ltd offers dependent child age is 25 years & only Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company offers 35 years of dependent child coverage.  So, dependent child age consideration varies company to company.

How Much Insurance is Sufficient?

Family Health

This is again a major question when we decide & Compare best Mediclaim Policy by way of online searches like best cheap Health Insurance of 3 lakh / 5 lakh / 10lakh without thinking above point no. 1. How many person will cover in this health policy? Will it worthy to buy basic sum assured as per current scenario & also assume that treatment cost of private hospital is manageable according to have basic sum assured. If any critical disease arise any of the family member in future then what happen? If any major Accident happened with any of the family member then? So, I personally advise mostly person that cheaper medical insurance will cost you too higher at the time of claim.  Because in the market, when you compare in several sites may be you find cheapest health insurance in India but when you go in depth of those policy must be having several capping’s which is too harmful & also realize at the time of claim.

Which Company is better?

This is also very complicated issue when we are planning to buy a Best Family Health Insurance policy in India that which company is better?  Several options available in the market, mostly person confused which one is better & which company has best feature, best facilities and applicable in my budget also.  So, as an expert, I always advise to the customer mainly two types of the policy is available in the market which is as follows:-

Types of Health Insurance plans for family:-

This options found in generally Govt. companies who provide mediclaim policy for family having several sub-limits in Room Rent / ICU Room / Doctors Fees having co-payment 10% in all claims in these policy premium are very low (cheaper).

Without sub limit

Normally this options available in Private companies those provide best mediclaim policy for family without sub-limit of Room Rent / ICU Room / Doctors fees and No Co-payment, it is 100% cashless treatment in their health policies. Preferable choice should be without sub-limit option is more useful due to best cashless mediclaim policy for family in India. So, obvious the premium of private health insurance companies as compare to government health insurance companies is higher, and several options available in health insurance companies in India.  So, it is depends on customer to customer according to their financial conditions and need.
