Policyholders with other insurers can switch to a better Liberty health insurance policy, unlocking new coverage benefits while retaining ones accrued from the previous policy. Anyone planning to port from their current health plan can initiate the porting process with Liberty Health Insurance around 45 days before the policy renewal.
Here are some of the key advantages associated with porting to a Liberty health insurance policy:

The accumulated No Claim Bonus (NCB) works differently when an existing policy is ported to Liberty health insurance, contingent on specific scenarios. Let us explore each of these scenarios to gain a comprehensive understanding:
Scenario 1: When the policyholder selects a Liberty health insurance policy with the same base sum insured, the waiting periods from the preceding policy will be sufficient.
For example, Ashwin, who holds a Rs. 12 lakh health policy with an NCB of Rs. 6 lakh. If he chooses to port to a Liberty health insurance policy of Rs. 12 lakh, the waiting periods from his previous policy will be counted. This enables him to leverage coverage benefits without serving additional waiting periods.
Scenario 2: In scenarios where the policyholder ports to a Liberty health policy with a base sum insured equivalent to the sum of the previous policy's base sum insured and the NCB, the waiting periods of the previous policy will suffice.
For instance, Ashwin who possesses a Rs. 12 lakh health policy with an NCB of Rs. 6 lakh. If he decides to port to a Liberty health insurance policy of Rs. 18 lakh, the waiting periods from his previous policy also count. This outcome is because the combined value of the previous policy's base (Rs. 12 lakh) and the NCB (Rs. 6 lakh) equals the Liberty health policy's base sum insured (Rs. 18 lakh).
Scenario 3: When the policyholder opts for a Liberty health policy with a higher base sum insured than the cumulative value of the previous health policy's base and the NCB, waiting periods apply to the additional coverage amount.
For example, Ashwin, who possesses a Rs. 12 lakh health policy with an NCB of Rs. 6 lakh. Suppose he decides to port to a Liberty health insurance policy of Rs. 25 lakh. In that case, the waiting periods served under the previous policy will be sufficient for Rs. 18 lakh coverage. However, standard waiting periods must apply to claim the additional Rs. 7 lakh.
