BOOKED MOVIE TICKETS FOR THE FAMILY? WHAT ABOUT A HEALTH INSURANCE?
03 September 2019
That’s not the only worrying aspect. We are falling iller than ever before, thanks to our stressful lives. Makes a perfect case for you to go and get your health insurance today. But before you do, here’s a checklist for various types of health risks.
AN ACCIDENT MIGHT JUST BE AROUND THE CORNER
Accidents are not planned, they just happen. You always have the risk of running into an accident especially if you travel for long hours to your workplace, which most of us do. A health insurance plan can cover these costs of hospitalization if something happens to you. Did you know a premium of INR 3000 can secure your hospitalization charges up to INR 2 lakh? That’s nothing when you compare to the repercussions of an accident.
CRITICAL ILLNESS CAN PUT YOUR FINANCES ON ICU
We are seriously playing with our health by leading an unhealthy lifestyle, which has led to several lifestyle diseases like cancer. Cancer is not just life-threatening but wealth jeopardising too as it can drain all your savings and financial security. That’s not all, India is one of the major hubs of heart disease and obesity, which leads to other critical illnesses. Therefore, it is important to take a health insurance plan that protects you against these diseases and doesn’t become a financial burden for your family.
A SURGICAL STRIKE ON YOUR WEALTH
Sometimes, medicines, consultations and therapy do not work. All you need is surgery to put your health back on track. But surgeries are usually not affordable. That’s where an affordable health insurance can help as they cover various types of surgeries, which means you can breathe easy and not fall sick of stress due to lack of funds.
WHEN THE FAMILY HEALTH IS DOWN
Isn’t it frustrating when your family gets getting ill frequently? Although it might not dent your pocket, it affects your weekly or monthly budgets. A beneficial health plan covers OPD and consultation fees plus hospitalization charges.
WHAT ARE THE MEDICAL COSTS INVOLVED?
Medical costs can come in various sizes, shapes and forms. Here are some medical costs you may have to shell out or what is covered by the insurer.
Pre-hospitalization: These are all the costs that you’ll have to incur before hospitalization
Hospitalization charges: This is the amount you’ll have to pay while getting admitted into a hospital
Medication and medical procedures: If you have a surgery or are on some medication.
Discharge expenses: The costs at the time of exiting the hospital
Post Hospitalization: These are the costs that are incurred in medication after the treatment in the hospitalization
