During such times, getting optimal medical care is a top priority and not much thought is accorded to medical expenses and medical bills. It is at the time of settling bills that can cause stress as arranging for adequate finances at the last minute can get quite cumbersome or can affect your savings. Conversely, lack of adequate funds could come in the way of securing optimal health care for the ailing and can at times prove fatal. It is for these reasons that a health insurance policy is extremely essential so that you get optimal health care without endangering your savings.

Opting for a comprehensive health insurance would be beneficial as it offers extensive coverage. With a comprehensive health policy lends coverage for all hospitalisation bills, payment of doctor’s or surgeon’s fees, room rent, expenses incurred with the purchase of medicines etc. The coverage offered by a health plan differs from one insurance provider to another. Thus, it becomes important to read carefully the extent of coverage and any additional charges like deductibles or co-payments which may be applicable on certain medical services and coverage offered by your health insurance policy.

To buy an affordable health insurance comparing quotes is a must. An insurance quote gives you a fair idea about the premium payable for a particular cover. Based on this knowledge, you can easily narrow down on several insurance covers and select one which best meets your requirements and budget. The best health insurance would be one which offers the freedom to structure the policy premium as per the buyer’s convenience. For this reason, it would be beneficial to consider the Complete Heath Insurance plan offered by ICICI Lombard.
