Port Your Health Policy - Choose Wisely

Are you unhappy with your current health insurance company or plan? Do you find other health insurance plans to offer a comprehensive scope of coverage or is cost-effective or have lower or minimal coverage restrictions and even have a simpler claim settlement process? Then portability can be a good option for you.

The process of portability involves moving existing insurance to a new one with a different insurer without forfeiting any accrued benefits, such as the No Claim Bonus (NCB), waiting period credit, etc. The IRDA guidelines states that no insurer, whether new or existing, is allowed to charge a fee for transferring a health insurance policy.

To ensure an effortless switch and avoid any potential pitfalls, insured should take into account key details before porting their current health insurance policy.
