      Honestly, we all want to buy a health plan that doesn’t hurt our pockets and provides adequate financial cover as well. And it will not be wrong to say that Covid-19 has affected hundreds of households around the world in terms of both health and income. To overcome such a situation, it becomes essential to buy a health insurance cover that doesn’t charge you a bomb.

      3. The Right Insurer

      The authenticity and the premium paying capability of the insurer is also an important factor in evaluating the best health insurance plan for Coronavirus. You can analyze the reliability of the insurer by knowing the Solvency Ratio, Claim Settlement Ratio (CSR) and Incurred Claim Ratio of the company.

      These ratios tell the insurer’s claim paying and settlement abilities and the financial standing.  You can select an insurer who is performing well as per all the ratios.

      4. COVID Home Care Treatment

However, if we talk about Corona kavach policy, it includes COVID-19 home treatment cover up to 14 days. This coverage benefit proves to be quite useful if there is shortage of beds in the hospitals. Or due to some reason, the doctor advises treatment at home. Do not forget to check for this beneftit in your policy wordings at the time of purchase.

      5. Quick and Hassle-free Online Purchase

      Another important aspect that you need to consider while selecting the best insurance for the Covid-19 is the online purchase and renewal process. During the times of Coronavirus pandemic, the insurer must provide the ease of online purchase. Both the purchase and the claim process should be fast and convenient.
