There are ways to lower your health insurance premiums despite medical costs. Below are some simple but effective ways to cut health insurance premiums:
- Buy health insurance early
Early health insurance purchases can lower premiums. Health insurance premiums are directly related to policyholder age. The insurance company sees you as a greater risk as you age.
- Compare health insurance online
Comparing health insurance plans online before buying is a great way to save money. Comparisons can help you find an affordable health insurance plan with good coverage. ##
- Get family floater health insurance
Instead of buying individual plans for each family member, buy a family floater plan. It covers all family members on a floater sum insured basis. All insured family members share the sum insured and policy benefits for one premium. Since individual health plans require premiums for each family member, a family floater plan is more affordable. Thus, you save tonnes annually.##
- Buy senior parent health plans
Avoid including elderly parents in your family floater plan to lower health insurance premiums. Covering them requires a separate health insurance policy. The eldest family member’s age determines the family health insurance premium. As your parents’ age, your floater policy premium will rise. However, a separate policy for your parents will lower your premium. You can find more details about this on a medical insurance app.
- Buy basic health cover
If a comprehensive health insurance policy is too expensive, choose a basic plan that covers emergency hospitalisation. Basic health plans cost less than comprehensive ones due to their limited coverage.
- Select coverage wisely
Choose wisely to lower health insurance premiums. A policy with unnecessary coverage will raise your premium. If you still need to get married, don’t get maternity coverage. Avoid unnecessary add-on covers.
- Long-term policy tenure
2–3-year plans are more affordable than annual plans. Most Indian insurance companies offer a long-term concession on 2- or 3-year policies. You can look for this type of policy on a medical insurance app.
- Online health insurance
Online health insurance purchases have lower premiums. Online insurance companies charge a lower premium because their operational costs are lower.
- Choose a top-up health plan
A top-up health insurance plan can lower your premium without reducing coverage. They’re great for people with health insurance who want emergency coverage. A basic health plan with a top-up plan is more affordable than a comprehensive plan with a higher sum insured. The top-up plan’s premium will be reasonable if covered under your employer’s group health insurance plan. You can find these on an app for health insurance.
- Choose a cumulative bonus policy
Use the cumulative bonus benefit to get more health insurance coverage without paying more. You get a cumulative bonus if you don’t claim the previous policy term.*
- Live healthily
Healthy living lowers health insurance premiums. Insurers prefer healthy people without health issues to smokers and those with medical conditions.
