When you plan to buy health insurance, check these points.

  1. Make sure to understand Policy terms and conditions. Now how to do it is upto you. Buy from An online web aggregator or A web portal or an Insurance Agent or An Insurance broker or a Full time Health Insurance Agent . But understand well as you are the end user and if something goes wrong, you will end up loosing money
  2. How much Budget you can spare ? This will decide point no 3
  3. How much cover you need ? A person living in West Bengal village or Mumbai have different need. You can decide it as per the area, if you are traveling a lot.
