In 2019 i closed all the health insurance of all family members since Religare rejected claim for my father’s treatment.

Now I’m looking to get a health insurance again for 4 family members including myself. Please suggest some insurance companies that will atleast be a bit willing to help in the time of need(hopefully this won’t come).

Family members include my parents ans my sister.

Thankfully I never had to claim in the past 3 years. But i saw that the claim settlement ratio is good.

Buy from Policybazaar,Nowadays after completing 2 years they are assigning RM (Relationship Manager) who will handle all your paperwork on behalf of you! Its very good feature,also You can compare list of Policies and check the claim settlement ration and talk to advisor if possible and tell him what happened to you,last time!

I am there customer from Last 2+ Years ,so far there experience is good,they come in between you and insurane comany so,its always good and also premium is less as compares to the original website and sometimes,on email they also provide you assurance certificate of Genuine Claim Guarantee!.

Go with Brands Like TATA AIG,STAR HEALTH,ADITYA  BIRLA,ETC.

I’m certified national insurance agent so I can speak with some confidence as far as NIA is concerned,

But one thing to consider before buying health insurance, in my opinion, as we say to our clients/prospects, always see claim settlement ratio provided by IRDA for last 1-2 years, gives you an insight how the organisation is doing post sales service, and also read the brochure carefully, as detailed as possible, read benefits and coverages.

For pre existing conditions everyone has the waiting.
But The only problem is it doesn’t cover pregnancy related expenses at all.

I saw icici Lombard covers pre-existing diseases in just a few weeks of taking the policy. Any idea if icici has a good reputation?

One size doesn’t fit all, so you need to check plans according to your needs

Lombard is a good one too. But like shraaj said many are taking the guidance of policy bazaar these days.
I’d prefer to make a wrong choice than give them my contact number, that’s why I didn’t do it.

Can you tell me how i can get in touch with an advisor? I can only see the option to view plans myself on their website , no option to talk to someone.

There are few more things to consider not just claim settlement.
Network hospitals, cashless facility etc
Public sectors are good at reimbursement but only at prescribed rates i think. @adnan_d92 am i right??

Yes correct.. Generally all major hospitals are covered in major cities so don’t worry about that.. Even if it isn’t you can always claim reimbursement

Religare is a reputated firm. What exact reason they gave for rejecting your father’s claim? How old was your policy? Had you disclosed all the pre existing diseases with them? Did you file a complaint?

Try to find the reason first. Who is to say the next company won’t do the same

Pardon me if u don’t agree, i would suggest you a govt policy instead of any private one, no matter what the claim settlement ratio is..
You should opt for sbi arogya plus policy, cheap, fixed premium lifetime, easy to get the policy, no tantrum while purchasing or claiming.

Many will not agree here, but still as per my experience, u can opt for arogya plus (u can also take top up).

If not sbi, then u can go wid new india, national insurance.

What you did very wrong is closing the policies .

You should have ported them to a government one (like new india assurance/United India insurance etc. ) .

You must know as per IRDAI guidelines one company can’t reject any claim when policy tenure is more than 8 years.

Here’s my personal insurances-

1) For my parents New India Assurance with 5 lac floater, Arogya Sanjeevani. 

2)For me IFFCO TOKIO ,50K coverage plan.

(Will bump up the coverage after 8 years)

Can you please share with which company you hold your policy and if you don’t mind can you share the Claim Settlement Guarantee Certificate by hiding your personal details?
