Cost of Pre-Insurance Health Checkup

You don’t need to undergo a medical checkup if your age is up to 55 years. Insured persons  above 55 years of age will be required to undergo a medical checkup. The cost of a pre-policy health checkup shall be reimbursed by the insurer on the issuance of the policy. The company agrees to reimburse up to 50% of the cost of examinations. This will be provided as a refund of the premium to the customer after the policy issuance.

Free Look Period

The free look period of 15 days shall be applicable on new individual health insurance policies. However, this norm won’t apply at the time of policy renewal, porting or migration. It starts from the date of receipt of the policy document to review the terms and conditions, and if the same is not acceptable, you can return the policy. If you haven’t made any claims during the free look period, the insurance company will refund the paid premium after the deduction of medical examination expenses and stamp duty charges. Where the risk has already commenced, the insurer will make a deduction towards the proportionate risk premium for the period on the cover. If only a part of the insurance coverage has commenced, such proportionate premium commensurates with the insurance coverage during the free look period.
