What you need to understand here is that your employee will not be able to raise a claim during the notice period. In this case, it is suggested to keep a backup option ready so that any of the employee willing to raise a claim can do so and get proper coverage for the hospital expenses.

Once the notice period is over, the insurer will cancel the group health plan and refund the premium amount that was not utilized during the tenure that will exclude service tax. Also, remember that the insurer will only give you the refund when none of your employees has raised a claim during the policy tenure.

The refund of the premium amount also depends on the time passed since the initiation of the group health plan. It means that if the policy duration of your insurance plan is about to end then you may not get any refund. Have a look at the table below to under the percentage of refund you would get after the cancellation of the group health insurance plan.

Cancellation of Group Health Insurance By Insurance Company

The insurance company can cancel your group health insurance policy. For that, they too have to provide a 30 days notice period. They will also have to refund the unused premium amount only if no claims have been raised during the policy tenure. The parameters of the refund stay the same.

Dishonest Act By Insured

If any person on behalf of the insured or the insured person himself has acted dishonestly, the insurer can cancel the policy.

Misrepresentation of Material Facts

If the insured has not represented the material facts transparently, the insurer can cancel the group health insurance plan.

Non-Renewal of Insurance Policy

Not renewing the insurance policy on time is one of the reasons why the insurer cancels the group insurance plan. If the insured does not renew the insurance policy before the expiry date, the insurance plan lapses, however, the insured gets a grace period during which he/she can renew the insurance plan to get continuous coverage under the group health insurance policy.
