Why is health insurance mandatory?

Having health insurance comes with a plethora of benefits besides hassle free medical assistance and financial coverage for your health care expenses. It is vital to have a suitable health insurance plan in order to safeguard your hard earned money. The rising cost of medical treatments and poor lifestyle choices have made health insurance more important than ever. It also helps you avail cashless facilities in reputed hospitals, some of which are not affordable for most middle class families otherwise.

What is the claim process for health insurance?

Policyholders can register their claims online as well as offline. For offline claims, you can call on the toll-free number where the executive will guide you with the entire process of claim registration. The online registration is however much quicker and hassle free. You can visit your network hospital and verify your details before you send your pre authorization form to your policy provider.

For a reimbursement claim, all you have to do is submit all relevant documents to the insurance company which will be verified before your claim is approved. In case of any discrepancy, your insurance provider will ask for more details or contact you for submitting further proofs and documents.

It is suggested that before you choose your insurance provider, you do a thorough research and choose only the one which has a good market standing and a reliable claim settlement ratio.
