The No Claim Bonus (NCB) works differently when an existing policy undergoes porting to Kotak Mahindra health insurance. Let us dive into each of these scenarios for a deeper understanding:
Scenario 1: When the policyholder selects a Kotak Mahindra health policy with the same base sum insured, the number of policy years for which the claim has not been filed.ie. the waiting period will be considered.
For instance, Consider Rahul, who has a Rs. 15 lakh health policy with an NCB of Rs. 5 lakh. If he opts to port to a Kotak Mahindra health insurance policy of Rs. 15 lakh, the waiting periods from his previous policy will be carried forward. This ensures he can access coverage benefits without encountering additional waiting periods.
Scenario 2: When the policyholder ports to a Kotak Mahindra health policy with a base policy amount equal to the combined value of the previous policy's base coverage limit and the NCB, the waiting periods already served are counted.
For example, consider Rahul, who holds a Rs. 15 lakh health policy with an NCB of Rs. 5 lakh. If he decides to port to a Kotak Mahindra health insurance policy of Rs. 20 lakh, the waiting periods from his previous policy will continue. This is because the sum of his previous policy's base (Rs. 15 lakh) and the NCB (Rs. 5 lakh) equals the new base sum insured (Rs. 20 lakh).
Scenario 3: When the policyholder chooses a Kotak Mahindra health policy with a higher policy amount than the aggregate of the base sum insured and the NCB of the current health plan, waiting periods apply to avail any additional coverage amount.
For instance, consider the scenario of Rahul, who holds a Rs. 15 lakh health policy with an NCB of Rs. 5 lakh. If he wishes to port to a Kotak Mahindra health insurance policy of Rs. 25 lakh, the waiting periods served under the previous policy are adequate for Rs. 20 lakh coverage. However, standard waiting periods are applicable to claim the additional Rs 5 lakh.
