              FAQ’s

                Is there any tax benefit?

                Yes. Premium paid under the Policy shall be eligible for income tax benefit under Sec 80 D of the Income Tax Act and any amendments thereon.

                Why is it necessary for me to disclose my current health status correctly and accurately while I buy a health insurance policy?

                Insurance is a contract of utmost good faith. It always pays to be honest. Declaring the correct and accurate health status at the time of buying health insurance ensures smooth processing of your application. This will also help us service you in a better manner.

                What is beneficial for me - floater insurance or an individual insurance?

                Buying an individual cover or a floater cover is an individual's perception. However, as a general rule, at younger ages floater cover is advisable. As you grow older, you should go for an individual cover.

                What is the eligibility criteria for the policy?

                Minimum entry age for the policy is 46 years with no limit on the maximum age.

                What is Co-payment?

                Health Insurance companies use Co-Payment after insured member turns a certain age. Co-pay is that part of your claim amount, which you have to bear. Co-pay can be in % terms or an absolute amount. For example, in case of co-pay of 20% and claim of Rs. 10,000, we will pay you Rs. 8,000 (80% of 10K) and you will bear 20% (Rs. 2,000). In Religare Health Insurance policy there is No Co-payment ever, in policy Sum Insured Rs. 2/3/4 Lacs.For Sum Insured > Rs. 4 Lacs, there will be no co-payment ever, if insured with us before age of 61.

                How does the Auto recharge work?

                Religare will automatically recharge the sum insured, in case the sum insured and any no claim bonus accumulated is exhausted during the policy year. The sum insured will be recharged once in a policy year. Recharge Sum Insured can be used for future claims and not against an illness/disease (including its complications) for which a claim has already been made in the current policy year.
