Two, the service provider became more stringent towards quality services for the customers. Predominantly, the bonuses were all for the customers. That’s what the facility of portability comes with. If you are aware, the good news is that you have a similar luxury with your health insurance too. That means you can transfer your policy to another insurer keeping about all the benefits of your policy intact.
However, there are a few conditions in transferring your health insurance policy from your current insurer to another.
During the insurance period, the customer gains credit for the waiting period of pre-existing diseases. It has been mandated by Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) that the new insurer must consider the credit gain and the waiting period for the policy portability – only if the policy has been in continuation with timely premium payments and no defaults.
If you are covered under a high risk category, regardless of your policy duration and regular premium payments, the new insurer has all the authority to charge a higher premium as part of their underwriting rules. Also if you are eligible for a no-claim bonus from your current insurer, the insurer may not consider paying you for that. In addition, the new insurer will have its own terms and conditions which may exclude expected benefits. So don’t forget to do a detailed research before you switch.
