The rising cost of healthcare facilities as well as the current pandemic, have made it essential for everyone to have an emergency financial backup. This kind of backup comes in the form of term insurance and health insurance. While the former provides financial support to the family of the insured due to an unfortunate situation, the latter is beneficial for footing the medical expenses of the policyholder in the case of severe illnesses and injuries.
Term insurance is a life insurance policy where the insurance provider or the insurer provides coverage to the insured in case of his/her death, in return for a fixed number of premiums given towards the sum assured amount. These payments are made only during the tenure of the policy, and if anything happens to the policyholder within that tenure, then the insured’s family receives the sum assured as a death benefit. However, if the insured survives the term or passes on after the term, then no payout is applicable.
Recently, insurance companies have started offering Return of Premium term plans that offer a survival benefit to the policyholder. If the insured survives the policy term, the company will pay the total premium paid as maturity benefit.
Health insurance covers the medical expenses and hospitalisation bills of the insured. In case the policyholder has to pay heavy medical bills due to an ailment or injury, then the health insurance settles these expenses with the hospital or medical care facility. The diseases and health conditions covered under a health insurance plan will vary as per the policy and insurance company.
1. The need for life cover and health cover
With a life cover under a term insurance policy and a health cover under a health insurance policy, you can ensure that the life, health as well as the finances of you and your family are completely secure.
2. The ease of paying affordable premiums
The premiums for term plans are not only fixed as per the tenure but are also lower as compared to other insurance plans. While choosing a health insurance plan, a healthy lifestyle and a lower age limit can help you avail affordable premiums on the policy.
3. Tax benefits on health insurance and term insurance
The premiums paid for both term insurance and health insurance can be deducted from tax under the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961. Term plan premiums are tax-deductible under Section 80C, while health insurance premiums fall under Section 80D. Similarly, the death benefit payout under term insurance is exempt from taxation under Section 10(10D).
4. No need to dip into emergency funds and savings
With total financial coverage on your life and health with term insurance and health insurance, your hard-earned money is always secure. Health insurance takes care of emergency medical expenses. Additionally, term plans allow your family a secured financial future in case of your sudden demise. Thus, you or your family do not have to dip into the savings in case of any eventualities.
5. Stay prepared for unforeseen circumstances.
You can trust a term insurance policy to provide robust support to your family for the fulfilment of their financial needs at a time when you’re not around anymore. Moreover, a health insurance plan covers critical illnesses related to cancer, liver, cardiac and neuro, along with protection against accidental death or disability.
