How to choose the right health insurance plan for father?

Before you just pick one plan from the various insurers you need to first know what an ideal health plan for your dad looks like.

No entry age restriction

You must look for a health plan which does not imply any entry age restriction, so basically even if your dad is in his late 60s the policy should cover him. Our Health Suraksha insurance offer no entry age limit you can buy this policy for any age group.

No room rent sub limits

In case of an hospitalization you don’t really have to worry about room rent limits. You can choose any room category without worrying about the bed charges, nursing expenses or ICU cost.

Pre existing diseases waiting period

Pre-existing ailments refer to any disease you’ve been treated in the past. You need to ensure that the waiting period for pre existing disease is a little on the lower side. For example, if your dad is a diabetic then the treatment expenses for any ailment related to diabetes would start only after the pre existing disease waiting period.

Lifelong Renewability
