Health insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company. You will have to pay premiums towards the policy, and in exchange, you will get a sum assured in case of medical expenditure. It can provide you with financial coverage to handle any medical emergencies. You can either get full reimbursement of your medical expenses or a cashless treatment at a network hospital. To get a health insurance policy seamlessly, you will need to follow the guidelines provided by the insurance company and provide all the relevant documents. Once all the documents are provided to the company, the process of getting the policy will become smooth for you.​

The documents required for getting a health insurance plan

1. Age ProofGenerally, a lot of insurance companies have a fixed entry age. The documents required as proof of age are:

  • PAN Card
  • Aadhar Card
  • Driving License
  • Passport
  • Birth Certificate

2. Address ProofInsurance companies may want to reach out to you to send physical documentation. Also, knowing the identity and address of the applicant allows the company to prevent any fraud, identity theft or false application.

The steps to get an online insurance policy are:

You can select from options like personal, family, group etc. This is an important step, as your entire coverage will depend on the policy you choose.

2. Select the members to be covered: Here, you will need to select the members that you wish to insure. This can include your husband/wife, children or your parents.

3. Date of birth of the members: : You will have to provide your date of birth and the individuals you have included in the plan.

4. Select the insurance amount (sum insured): Then you may select the amount of insurance coverage that you wish to get. It would bode well for you if you used a health insurance premium calculator to select an amount that will be affordable for you.

5. Contact details of the insured: When you provide your contact details like your phone number, email-d and address, the insurance company can easily contact you. This will be beneficial for them to get in touch with you in case they have any queries regarding your health insurance policy.

6. Get a quote: After you have provided all of the above information, the insurance company will calculate and provide you with a quote that is suitable for you. Once you have gotten the quote that you are comfortable with, you can go ahead and buy the health plan online.
