Why Get HealthCare Insurance?

Sudden illnesses and diagnosis can blindside you. Here’s the average cost of a major surgery: 

Heart Bypass: 500, 000
Angioplasty: 450, 000
Cancer: 300, 000 

Hospital bills drain the staunchest of savers. This is why you need good health insurance. A health insurance policy is a guarantee. A comprehensive cover that covers all your hospital expenses, ensures you get the best doctors and medical treatment, and provides for your diagnostic and other medical expenses once you’ve left the hospital. 

What is Personal HealthCare?

Personal healthcare insurance is taken out by individuals to insure themselves. It offers comprehensive hospital coverage, in and out, and additional benefits at low premium rates. If you’re looking for an insurance policy for yourself, personal healthcare is the way to go.

What is the Difference Between Personal HealthCare and Family HealthCare?

Personal healthcare insures a single individual. Family healthcare packages cover a family unit (including your spouse and 4 children). Here’s an example. Let’s assume you’ve taken a cover for PKR 100, 000. Depending on the individual healthcare package you’ve taken you’ll receive a coverage amounting up to PKR 100, 000. Any hospital bill exceeding the insured limit will have to be footed by you. 

In contrast, with family health care, if you take out a cover of PKR 350, 000 for your family unit, no matter who gets hospitalized, the total coverage given will be equivalent to PKR 350, 000. 

Personal HealthCare Plans are cheaper, and more customizable. But if you’re thinking of taking out an insurance policy for your whole family, you should choose family healthcare as it offers better coverage.

CRITICAL ILLNESS COVERAGE

An additional Critical Illness Cover can be taken for extra protection. This pays a one-off cash lump sum to the insured to pay for expenses including specialist equipment, day-to-day expenses after diagnosis, funding for private treatment, or additional monthly support income. 

Here are the illnesses covered in the cover:

Heart Attack/ By-Pass Surgery

Paralysis

Major Organ Transplant

Cancer

Multiple Sclerosis

Blindness

Stroke

Renal Failure

Deafness

Additional Information

Here are some additional pointers to help you make a solid and well-informed decision. 

  • Silver, Gold, and Platinum Options: Most Healthcare insurance policies come with 3 tiers. Each tier is priced differently. Silver plans come with the lowest premium and offer less coverage while Platinum Plans come with higher premiums and offer more coverage.
    Protip: Discuss all your needs and requirements with an agent thoroughly before choosing your plan.
  • Age Restrictions: The plans insure people up to the age of 59 years. For family healthcare plans the starting age limit for the youngest family member insured is 90 days.
  • Government Taxes: Most price illustrations listed are government tax inclusive. In any case, always check with the insurance company before signing on the dotted line.
  • Increase Annual Limit When You Want: Your ‘annual limit’ is the amount of coverage (PKR) you get. For example, someone with an annual limit of PKR 350, 000 will get coverage for medical expenses of up to PKR 350, 000 for that year. Any expense above that will have to be covered by the policyholder himself. Luckily, the policyholder can choose to set a higher annual limit for greater protection at any given time during the life of the policy.
  • Maturity Benefit: If your policy completes 2+ years with zero claims being made the company increases your annual limit by 10% without any additional charges involved.
