How to purchase the cheapest health insurance

The exponential rise in healthcare rates has made it extremely difficult for the common man to afford good quality healthcare. Currently, an unexpected accident or illness is enough to wreck the financial stability of a family. Only a health insurance policy​ can safeguard you from the possibility of a financial catastrophe. Moreover, wouldn’t it be great if we could find a medical insurance policy that provides the right coverage at the cheapest rate? Follow the below mentioned list to buy the cheapest health insurance policy.

  • Opt for a Family floater policy: A family floater policy provides coverage for the entire family. The sum insured of the policy is shared between the family members. Think about it, have you ever used your entire sum insured yet? A family floater gives you an opportunity to utilize the entire sum insured as there are more chances of someone from your family falling sick in a particular year. Apart from utilizing the sum insured, you can even save a lot of money on buying individual policies.
  • Enhance your voluntary deductible:  A deductible is your contribution when there is a claim situation. In all, there are two types of deductibles, namely, mandatory deductible and voluntary deductible.
