Frequent Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the difference between a family floater and critical illness or hospital cash insurance?
The individual or family floater health insurance works on the principle of indemnity. This means that these insurance policies will pay you only what you have spent for medical treatment in hospital. On the other hand, the critical illness or the hospital cash insurance pays you the amount insured, irrespective of the amount spent for medical treatment. These are a benefit based policies.

Do I need to undergo a medical check-up while buying a health insurance policy?
You may be required to undergo a medical check-up after you buy, in case any member to be insured is above 45 age.

What is beneficial for me - floater insurance or an individual insurance?
Buying an individual cover or a floater cover is an individual’s perception. However, as a general rule, at younger ages floater cover is advisable. As you grow older, you should go for an individual cover.

What is Co-payment?
Co-pay is that part of your claim amount, which you have to bear. Co-pay can be in % terms or an absolute amount. For example, in case of co-pay of 20% and claim of Rs. 10,000, insurance company will pay Rs. 8,000 (80% of 10K) and you will bear 20% (Rs. 2,000).
