What is Family Health Insurance? 

Family health insurance is a product designed to cover all your family members under one policy. It has a single premium amount and sum insured but will cover everyone that you want included under the plan. If you're married, have kids, or ageing parents, taking a family health insurance policy will make it easier for you to ensure their proper treatment in case of hospitalisation.

4 Benefits of Buying a Family Health Insurance Plan 

Buying health insurance in general is a good idea. And it becomes a better idea when you're doing it for your family. 

Here are four benefits of buying a family health insurance plan: 

1. Affordability

A family health insurance plan, or a mediclaim policy for family, is way more affordable than taking individual plans for each family member. With a family plan, you pay one premium amount to cover yourself, your spouse, and your children. The sum insured is shared among each family member which could mean better utilization of your coverage amount. 

2. Tax breaks

Under Section 80D, you're eligible for deductions up to Rs.25,000 (Rs.50,000 in case of senior citizens). In some cases, you can avail up to Rs.1 Lakh in tax deductions through your health insurance premium payments. 

3. Including new members is easy

If at any point of time you wish to provide health coverage to a new family member you can easily do so with a family health insurance plan. Family plans are built in such a way that makes it easy to include a newborn, parents, and even in-laws. Thus, having a family health insurance policy eases the process of extending health coverage to your loved ones. 

4. Additional benefits

Many health insurance plans can offer basic health coverage. But a good health insurance policy offers health coverage plus several benefits and even add-ons. A prime example of this is the reinstatement of your sum insured. In case you exhaust your coverage amount due to multiple hospital visits, you can replenish your sum insured with the restoration benefit. That means peace of mind for you even in times when more than one family member needs to be hospitalised.

6 Reasons You Should Buy a Medical Insurance Policy for Your Family

As we mentioned right at the beginning, everything is about family. Therefore, you must seriously consider buying medical insurance for your family. 

We've drummed up a list of six reasons why you should buy a medical insurance policy for your family. 

1. A family health insurance plan offers protection

As much as we'd like to control our lives, we can't control the onset of illnesses or the suddenness of accidents. Thus, it's pertinent to have a plan in place to protect yourself and your family members when such things happen

Having a mediclaim policy for family will offset a lot of these worries. You don't have to worry about providing adequate health-care for your hospitalised family member nor do you have to worry about paying for the treatment. This makes the top reason for you to buy health insurance for your family. 

2. It helps to deal with medical inflation

India faces one of the highest medical inflation rates in the world. Which means every year the cost for health care rises. So if you ever face the unfortunate event of an illness or accident without health insurance, you could be in deep financial trouble. But with a health insurance plan for your family, you can easily counter the rising medical costs in India. 

3. Company health insurance is not enough

Depending on the company you work for, you'll have a corporate health insurance policy. However, company sponsored medical insurance may not be enough for your family. Reasons like inadequate coverage and loss of coverage if you lose your job is enough for you to consider alternative options. So getting a personal family health insurance plan is vital to ensure your family is protected. 

4. Extend benefits to all family members

Health insurance plans in India come with multiple benefits. For example, the Reliance Health Infinity insurance plan comes with basic benefits like pre and post hospitalisation, in-patient care, day care procedures, etc. plus add-ons like OPD Cover, Unlimited Restore Benefit, Consumable Cover and more. Buying this family floater plan with the related add-ons would mean extending these benefits to all your family members. 

5. Maternity and newborn cover

Speaking of add-ons and benefits, a good health insurance plan will even help with your family planning. In case you're planning for a child, having a Maternity Cover add-on will help you during childbirth and a Newborn Cover (both available in Reliance Health Infinity) will take care of any expenses related to taking care of your baby. 

6. Protect your hard-earned savings

Scenarios like hospitalisation, childbirth, etc. are scenarios that can deplete your savings. Hence, having a​ mediclaim policy for family is important to protect yourself financially. Moreover, family health insurance reduces your tax burden under Section 80D helping your family's savings. 

Things to Consider Before Buying a Family Health Insurance Policy 

If you don't have a health insurance plan for your family then that's something that you should rectify as soon as possible. However, that doesn't mean you don't do your due diligence before buying one. 

Here are some points to keep in mind to help you find your ideal family health insurance plan: 

1. Number of network hospitals

When you buy your insurance plan, ensure that the insurer has a wide network of partner hospitals. Getting your treatments at a network hospital means you can get cashless treatments done. Therefore having network hospitals in your area a priority. Reliance General Insurance has a wide network of cashless hospitals making the likelihood of finding a network hospital near you higher. 

2. No room rent capping

If you have an insurance plan that has a cap on the hospital room rent, that means you will not get the hospital room that you want or your family deserves. But with a family floater plan like Reliance Health Gain and Reliance Health Infinity you'll have no restriction on the kind of hospital room you select. 

3. Pre & post hospitalisation expenses

One of the most basic covers in a health insurance plan are the pre and post hospitalisation expenses. Sometimes you need to undergo tests before the actual hospitalisation happens and at times you need to spend time recovering at the hospital even after your treatment is done. Any expenses related to these are covered under this benefit. Therefore, when buying a family health insurance policy, get one that offers a higher pre & post hospitalisation expenses cover. 

4. Waiting period

The waiting period refers to a duration of time in which you cannot make any claims related to pre-existing diseases. This could range from 2 to 4 years. There is also a 30 day initial waiting period during which you cannot make any claim at all unless it's an accident. Plus, health insurance policies also have a waiting period related to specific diseases. Now, the family plan that'll benefit you the most is the one with the lowest waiting period (only with respect to pre-existing and specific diseases). 

5. Claim settlement procedure

In the event of a hospitalisation, you should know how you're going to settle the hospital bill. There are two ways this happens, cashless claims and reimbursement. Cashless claims happen only in network hospitals and at non-network hospitals you can get your bills reimbursed. Finding out how you the claim settlement works will help you decide which family health insurance plan to go for. 

6. Lifetime renewability

The lifetime renewability clause enables you to renew your health insurance policy throughout your life. Thus, you have the option to renew your policy no matter your age or number of claims made in previous years.
