Do you want to do an investment, which will protect you along with your loved ones from the financial burden of uncertainties? If yes, then health insurance is the best option one can invest in. Health insurance covers you and your family from the burden of hospital expenses in case of any medical emergency thus, reducing the financial impact. It’s a protection cover which makes you stay away from the brunt of sudden medical expenses during any uncertain calamity. By getting insured, you will have peace of mind knowing that you are sheltered from this burden.
The first thing that clicks in your mind on hearing about insurance is the premium. Everybody wants an affordable and helpful cover. People always hunt for more by paying less. Lower health insurance premium rates always seem to be more attractive. While choosing any health insurance plan, the first thing that you must notice is premium as it will be a major part of your budget. Premium depends on the age of the policyholder and majorly on the coverage that policyholder opts.
Broader the coverage, higher will be the premium. So, does it mean that there is no option of getting broader cover at a lower premium? No, there are ways to reduce your premium. The first thing you must keep in mind while taking any plan is your needs. Choosing the right and perfect plan for you and your family can be very beneficial and affordable. You must understand the pros and cons of all the available plans and then go for the best one.
A healthy person who hardly has chances to get hospitalised can opt for a plan with co-payment. It ensures that in case of an emergency, at least some part of the expenses will be paid by the company. Apart from this, the policyholder can also go for a deductible clause. In this, the policyholder has to pay the deductible in advance before the insurance kicks in. So, the higher the co-pay and deductible, the lower will be the premium. Apart from this, no claim bonus reduces the premium. No claim bonus is the discount you get on the basic premium if there is a claim free year in your policy.
A low premium or a high deductible/co-payment plan can be very helpful for you. It can contribute to your savings and can help your budget not to go out of track. So, instead of taking a useless plan with a low premium and low coverage, you can go for other better options to get more affordable benefits.
