Factors you must check before buying a health insurance plan for coronavirus

  • Make sure to check the list of network hospitals mentioned in your policy terms. This way, you can know whether the insurer has tie-up with reputed hospitals or not. 
  • Check details for at least basic coverage benefits like pre and post hospitalization expenses, road ambulance, and ICU charges. 
  • Another important thing to check is the waiting period. Most insurance companies have a waiting period of 30 days before you can start to avail the benefits offered by your policy. However, this varies from insurer to insurer. 
  • Lastly, make sure to check the Sum Insured (SI) offered. Since the hospitalization expenses for coronavirus treatment are high, it is advisable that you get a health plan covering Covid-19 with a higher SI.
