A Millennial’s Guide to Buying Health Insurance
published on April 15, 2022

Just imagine, what could you do with a lump sum of money? If you are between the age of 18-and 30, you might plan an adventurous trip or buy the latest gadget on the market. But would you think of investing in a health insurance policy?

Millennials do not have a concept of saving and are often criticized for their lifestyle, where spending is prioritized over saving for the future. No one thinks of buying a health insurance plan until something bad happens. But health is above all, and with the COVID- 19 pandemic, Millennials have realized the importance of health insurance plans to cover the medical costs. Most of them find it challenging to choose the right health insurance. We can help you choose the right health insurance.

  • Plan selection:

There are various types of health insurance plans. You get a wide range of comprehensive options when you buy an insurance plan at a young age. Health Insurance is not just about getting medical cover for your hospital bills. Apart from basic plans, you may purchase critical illness plans which cover the treatment of life-threatening illnesses like cancer. You may need a plan to cover your family too.

Knowing about different types of health insurance plans can help you choose the right health insurance policy to suit your needs.

  • Check for Sub-Limits and deductibles before investing:

This is an important factor to keep in mind before you get a health cover. Sub-limit is an extra limit placed on your medical insurance claim by the insurance provider. There may be limits on things like ambulance costs, room rent, ICU charges, or even doctor consultation charges.

Read the policy terms thoroughly to identify such limits and avoid buying such insurance plans as you might have to pay expenses from your pocket.

  • Separate insurance for your Parents/ Family

When buying health insurance for your family, make sure you do not include them in the same cover. The two benefits of doing so are as follows.

  1. Your parents are the eldest members of the family. The insurance company will calculate the premium based on their age. So the overall insurance cost increases significantly.
  2. If your parents have any illness and make frequent claims, you may not be able to accumulate a No-claim bonus. Your premium will be extremely high and in some cases, you may not get the insurance cover you need.

Ignoring health insurance is not advisable as a serious accident or illness could hook you to staggering medical bills that will haunt you for years to come. To prepare yourself for challenging situations, get insured with a health insurance policy from Elephant Insurance.
