What is the right age to get health insurance
A person can buy individual health insurance as soon as they turn 18 years of age. Buying a policy at an early age gives financial protection, and you can get much higher coverage at a lower premium.
Numerous health insurance plans are available for families with a good range of coverage. A floater policy with wide range of sum insured options is the best for covering the entire family. Star Health offers various floater plans.
What does health insurance cover?
Medical costs incurred as a result of disease/illness/accident are covered by health insurance. These medical costs include the cost of hospitalisation, pre and post hospitalisation, medications, implants, specialist fees and the cost of surgery, etc.
In general, you can claim health insurance after a period of 30 days from the commencement of the health policy except for the claims that have waiting periods. However, in case of an accident, this initial waiting period is not applicable, and the cover is immediately provided if it is not for a pre-existing condition.
