      Things to Remember While Paying Your Health Insurance Premium Online

      Here are a few crucial things that you must keep in mind while paying your health insurance premium online:

      • Always buy health insurance online from a website that is registered with the IRDAI (Insurance Regulatory & Development Authority of India). All IRDAI-approved websites will have a license number at the bottom of the website.
      • Always enter your bank account or card details on a secured internet connection only. This way the chances of facing any fraud reduces.
      • If you need to renew your policy, make sure to pay the renewal premium to the insurance company before the policy expiry date. This will ensure that there is no gap in your policy coverage and you have medical coverage at all times.
      • The premium paid to buy or renew a health policy is eligible for tax deductions under Section 80D of the Income Tax Act. Thus, you can claim the premium by filing an income tax return.
      • Do not hide your medical history while buying or renewing your health insurance policy even if it increases your premium. If you do not disclose any pre-existing illness and your insurance company finds out about it later, your claim will be rejected and your policy may be canceled.
      • Make sure to read the policy document carefully before buying or renewing a medical insurance policy. Doing so will help you have a clear idea of the coverage, benefits and exclusions of the policy. Thus, you will get your desired coverage for the premium that you have paid.
      • You can also use a health insurance premium calculator online on to check the premium of different health plans before buying. This will help you compare different plans and choose the plan that best suits your needs.

      Summing It Up
