What Do You Need to Know When Comparing Different Policies?



Healthcare has become one of the most important aspects of people’s lives. With a Mediclaim policy, you can be at ease knowing that all your health needs are taken care of. But when it comes to selecting which policy is best for you, there are several factors to consider—the cost, duration and benefits offered by the plan. We will go through these factors, so you know what to look out for when comparing different policies!

– Cost: What is the sum insured, and how much do they charge for premium? This will give you an idea of whether your budget can stretch to cover this expense. There are policies where the premiums may be low, but at the same time, it does not offer coverage that is sufficient when emergencies arise. You need a plan that offers both in one package!

– Duration: How long would you like your policy to last? If you anticipate changing jobs soon, then it’s best to have a shorter duration to avoid paying high rates later after leaving work. But if you’re looking for more financial security with longer plans, take into consideration things such as retirement age and life expectancy while finalizing which option suits you better!

– Age: What’s the age for which you want your policy to cover? Depending on whether it’s a pre-existing condition, some of them may have an upper limit that will be required before coverage kicks in.

– Inpatient coverage: What is your preference? Would you like to cover only in-hospital care and skip out on outpatient visits as well? It may be better for certain people if they know that once their treatments are done, they will not have any other additional charges.

– Coverage limits: Ask yourself what’s the most important thing to insure against so that it’ll ensure peace of mind when calamity strikes! This can be a medical condition, potential illness or even death itself, depending on where priorities lie, but it’s best to figure this out before deciding.

-Type of Health insurance: You need to find out which is the right policy for you. For instance, the Mediclaim policy is for those who want to be insured from pre-existing conditions, including pregnancy. So, you can think about Mediclaim for yourself and your family depending on what you want to cover.

-The plan to choose: This is where one needs to do the research on what’s best for themselves. There are many plans out there, and they can range from being cheap (Rs 500) but not so comprehensive or a high-end policy with no waiting periods that will cost more than Rs 5000 per year.


In conclusion, you’ll want to compare different policies before choosing one. You can’t just go with the cheapest or most expensive option because they’re not always going to be best for your needs, and if it is too cheap, then there might be a reason behind that. So, make sure you do some research into what policy will suit you best!
