quoting from the document-
"A Prospectus of a health insurance policy shall contain disclosures about the terms of its renewal to enable the consumer to take an informed decision. This would include material information related to the coverage and likely premium for future renewals of the policy, including but not limited to a disclosure of the maximum age upto when renewal will be available..."

hence IRDA doesn't forbid the insurer from having an upper age limit for a policy, but that should be disclosed while selling the policy. As for cholamandalam they mention it on their site as well as while selling that the policy is renewable upto 69 yrs of age.

Apollo Munich mentions it's renewable life long. I hope there isn't a catch somewhere.

On the second page of the policy they write it clearly that policy is life long renewable. - I have seen the policy.

Are there any Travel Health Insurance packages that will cover pregnancy and delivery abroad?

Which is better? ICICI prudential Health saver policy or LIC's Health Plus. Both are ULIP based policies.

Does that mean if I take health Insurance policy for my parents in the age group 65-70 the policy can be renewed life long. I doubt that. But in the first place will Apollo Munich provide health Insurance for the age bracket?

You can renew the policy life long but check the entry age in the policy.

Here is what I made out about these two policies. Broadly, of the premiums that you pay, a portion goes to give you a regular health cover. The remaining is invested in ULIPS to create a health fund for you. During a claim, those that are not covered in regular health covers ( preexisting illness, OPD charges etc) can be redeemed from the health fund units. Of course there are some restriction and there are charges as well. Here are the links
ICICI Prudential Health Saver - Why Health Saver?
Life Insurance Corporation of India

If a person is able to save 15-20000 annually and invest it in a recurring fixed deposit or good mutual funds every year strictly without fail, then i think he/she should be able to build a good corpus by the time they are 60-65yrs. This is considering they start as early as 30yrs. Given such a scenario, is health insurance really necessary? Are we paying these companies unnecessarily?

Long post, sorry.

Guys,

Has anyone taken an Apollo Munich 360 Maxima plan yet?

I am planning to take this policy for my parents and myself. Parents already have a Medsave policy for 1 lakh coverage.

At approx. Rs. 24000 for dad, Rs. 17000 for mom and Rs. 14000 for myself, the annual premiums for Apollo do seem a bit pricey.

Health insurance is a very good option to be opted for imagine if some one takes a policy by paying Rs. 10000 for Rs. 300000 sum and meats with an accident and there is a claim of Rs. 200000.

Saving Rs. 10000 per year he will take 20 year's to save Rs. 200000. Remember there is no option to Health insurance you have to take it.

Default Health/Medical insurance premium thru ECS?

Rupesh ji,

Is there any health/medical insurance plan (i.e. eligible for deduction u/s 80D) which offers premium payment through monthly/quarterly mode (preferably via ECS)? I have searched around a lot but couldnt find any.

Also, what is the difference between traditional health insurance plans and the new ones (ULIP based) such as those offered by ICICI Pru?

OT - Do you also deal in car insurance?

Can we TBHPians form a group and sign-up for Group Health Insurance? I think it will be a much better option than signing up for plans on individual basis, we will get more insurance cover for same premium, existing disease coverage and can include parents too?

Is it possible? If yes, which Providers agree to sell Group Medical Insurance to Pvt Groups?
