Chola - Who can buy Flexi Health Content

Who can buy Flexi Health?

Several misconceptions float around regarding medical insurance. The biggest among them is that health insurance is designed only for older people who suffer from more medical ailments. Contrary to this popular but incorrect belief, medical conditions such as stroke, heart attack, cancer and many others are occurring more frequently in younger age groups. Therefore, waiting until you are much older to get your health insurance is not just a bad move with regards to finance and health, but you end up paying a higher premium as well.

Those who come with a family history of chronic diseases, and are genetically at a higher risk should definitely opt for this plan. Senior citizens and parents above the age of 50 should also consider shifting their health insurance to the flexible kind, or simply opt for this policy as an add-on. Persons working in the corporate world, and high-pressure stressful jobs are at increased risk of such diseases and should definitely add this to their corporate insurance provided by their employer.

Chola - What treatments does Flexi Health at Chola MS cover?

What treatments does Flexi Health at Chola MS cover?

As comprehensive as it is, not at all treatments and health conditions are covered by the Flexi Health at Chola MS. Here is a brief list of all conditions this extensive policy covers -

Accident-related injuries

Accidents constitute a medical emergency. Therefore, any injury caused during an accident, either directly or indirectly, major or minor, is covered by the Flexi Health at Chola MS. Additionally, you can also avail the cashless payment facility for the treatment, making the process much smoother and quicker.

Investigations

The insurance covers basic medical investigations such as x-rays, diagnostic tests, radiotherapy, blood examinations along with ambulance costs, charges for doctor's appointment and ICU charges or any charges for any other intensive care. However, all policies do not cover the cost of medication, and you must confirm this with your insurance provider before making a claim.

Pre-existing conditions

Any pre-existing health condition for which the policyholder seeks formal treatment is covered by the Flexi Health, but it is applicable only after an initial waiting period. For all pre-existing diseases, Chola MS offers a waiting period of 36 months.

Common surgeries

Common surgeries such as cataract surgery, hernia, haemorrhoids and sinusitis are covered by the insurance under the policy. Of course, each one of these comes with a waiting period, But the claim can be filed successfully after the waiting period has ended.

Q8. When should you buy Flexi Health?

We at Chola MS believe that several misconceptions float around regarding medical insurance. The biggest among them is that health insurances are designed only for older people who suffer from more medical ailments.

Contrary to this popular but incorrect belief, medical conditions such as stroke, heart attack, cancer and many others are occurring more frequently in the younger age groups. Therefore, waiting until you are much older to get your health insurance is not just a bad move with regards to finance and health, as you end up paying higher premiums.

Flexi Health plan is one plan that is becoming increasingly popular for its family coverage and its adaptable benefits.

Most people assume that the best time to get health insurance would be when they grow older when their body slowly stops supporting them. However, the older you become, the more diseases and disorders you suffer from. You usually claim your health insurance more regularly when you are 70 years old than when you are at the prime age of 20.

However, the older you become, the costlier your health insurance becomes. Chola MS requires a pre-policy health checkup, and the more abnormalities the checkup detects, the higher the premium the policyholder has to pay. This is especially true for chronic disorders such as cardiac conditions, diabetes, and so on.

Q9. Which is the best time for young people to get Chola MS health insurance?

At a much younger age, you do not opt for too many different ailments since you are of the mindset that you will not be affected by these conditions. Therefore, ideally, the best time to get Chola MS health insurance would be in your late twenties and early thirties.

Another advantage of getting your Chola MS Insurance earlier in the waiting period. Normally, waiting periods can range from 30 days to even 4 years, depending upon the type of plan you choose. At a younger age, you do not claim your insurance that often, and so overcoming the waiting period is not very difficult. As you grow older, the frequency of claiming insurance increases, and you risk rejection of your claim if you file for one before the end of your waiting period.

But this is where Flexi Health comes in with its multitude of benefits. As the name suggests, the policy is flexible. Therefore, you can opt to purchase it early on in your life and then customise or alter it later on in your life when more diseases and disorders get added to the list. Moreover, Flexi Health has a short policy tenure of one, two or three years, with the maximum being the 3-year plan, and every time you renew it, you can easily opt for additional coverage at low rates, depending upon your convenience.

Chola MS also offers discounts if you opt for single premium payment for the long-term policies and provides this type of insurance for both children and adults. For children, the policy ranges from 3 months to 26 years of age, covered under the family floater policy. Once they complete 26 years of age, they can simply switch to the Individual sum insured option, which is quite an effortless and quick transfer. The waiting period for chronic or pre-existing conditions for Flexi Health under Chola MS is only 36 months, which can easily be overcome if you opt for it right at the time when your condition is diagnosed.
