Health insurance is necessary as medical treatment has become very expensive with rise in medical inflation. Many people don’t avail health insurance; believing they won’t fall ill. According to experts, health insurance must be availed when you are young and healthy. Why is this so? If you are diagnosed with a chronic illness, getting health insurance is not easy. Even though you get a health insurance policy, the insurer asks you to serve a waiting period. Fortunately, Satish had purchased the health insurance policy when he was healthy.

Health insurance is offered to both families and individuals. If you buy a family floater health insurance plan, the whole family is covered. In case of family health insurance plans, the premium is computed based on the age of the eldest member of the family. On the other hand, individual health insurance policies cover only the insured individual but not the whole family. In Satish’s case, he had an individual health insurance plan. This saved him from a financial emergency.
