No-Claim Bonus?What To Do If Your Health Insurer Is Withdrawing

No-Claim Bonus?What To Do If Your Health Insurer Is Withdrawing: A number of public-sector insurers are withdrawing no-claim bonus and other benefits on their insurance plans. Let’s find out what recourse you have in such a situation. 




Here you can find if Your "Health Insurer Is Withdrawing and No-Claim Bonus"


What is a no-claim bonus?

The no-claim bonus offered on a Health Insurance policy is in the form of a cumulative bonus. Insurers offer this on indemnity-based Health Insurance policies. The policyholder must meet the following conditions:
  1. If one makes claims during overlapping periods of two Health Insurance policies, one will receive the benefit of the available sum insured. The cumulative bonus will also not reduce to zero.
  2. The cumulative bonus will expire if the person does not renew the Health Insurance policy by the due date.
  3. Each year the sum insured increase varies from 10%-50%.
  4. The cumulative bonus that a policyholder is eligible to receive on his/her Health Insurance will be stated in the policy document.
  5. Insurers apply the cumulative bonus to the sum assured for a 3-year period. This can help to renew the policy by the due date as well.
  6. There is a progressive increase in the sum assured, by a value of at least 5%. This is the cumulative bonus accrued during one policy year in which no claim has been made by the insured. The cumulative bonus can be accumulated for a maximum period of 10 years.
Experts advise that people who are above 50 years of age, should consider switching to a health policy with no-claim bonus benefit. Although this will result in only a marginal increase in premium costs, the benefit is useful.

Disbursement of no claim bonus:

An insurer can withdraw the no-claim bonus but it can also provide it to the policy-holder as a part of the sum insured after deducting the premium payable for the policy.

Renewal of Health Insurance policy:

The no-claim bonus will also act as a discount on premium payable for the Health Insurance policy at the time of renewal. Generally, in order to avail this benefit, one has to renew the policy within 30 days of the due date for renewal.

Good claim record incentives:

By maintaining a low claim record, one can avail a rebate on premium as well as enhanced protection.

Low-value claim:

When the policyholder files a low-value claim, he/she does not lose the entire No Claim Bonus. The insurer only deducts a small percentage from it.
