Health Insurance Offers Double Benefit

Health Insurance is a crucial instrument that provides you and your loved ones financial security in times of need. Thus, whether an emergency or a planned hospitalisation, a health insurance policy ensures umbrella coverage by helping you pay for the covered medical expenses in case of hospitalisation due to illness or injury.

What's more, other than safeguarding your finances from hospitalisation expenses, you can avail tax benefits on the premiums paid towards your health insurance under Section 80D of the Income Tax Act, subject to terms and conditions. This makes a health insurance plan a favourable tax-planning tool that adds a feather to the cap on your investments.
