What is Health Insurance policy?

A health insurance policy is your legal contract with an insurance company under which your medical expenses are covered. This can be actual hospitalisation expenses or a lump sum. 

Insurance companies have a network of hospital tie-ups so you can get cashless treatment. If you opt for a non-network hospital you can pay for your treatment and make a claim against bills.

Health Insurance Types

Some health insurance policies reimburse your hospitalization and related expenses; others pay a lump sum when a diagnosis is made. They may have built-in or add-on benefits like daily cash benefits, second opinion, and ambulance charges. Here are some types of health insurance policies.
