What is a Medical Loan?

Medical emergencies arrive without warning and if you don’t have a health insurance plan or an emergency fund, you’re in deep trouble. This is when you look at a medical loan.

A medical loan is an unsecured loan just like a personal loan. It can be used for emergency hospitalization like an operation, surgery, day care procedures or a therapy.

With a medical loan you don’t need to liquidate FDs, break investments or sell a property.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does medical loan from NBFC work?

A medical loan from an NBFC is a no cost EMI Loan. The hospital will bear your interest costs on the medical loan in the form of an upfront subvention fee.

If your hospital bill is Rs 1.8 Lakhs and the tenure of the loan is 12 months, the EMI will be Rs 15,000. Processing fees and other costs will be around 2-3% of the loan amount.

So how does this work? You (applicant) will have to deposit 2 months of EMI upfront. The balance must be paid in 10 installments. The hospital pays the lender 7-8% of loan amount as a subvention fee.

Hospitals generally offer discounts to patients paying out of pocket. If you opt for no cost EMI Loan you will lose this benefit. This is because hospitals incur subvention fees and will not offer discounts.

What interest rate do banks charge on medical loans?

Banks offer competitive interest rates on loans to entice you and other customers. Interest is around 12-20% a year.

  • Fixed Interest Rates: The interest rate remains constant and does not change over loan tenure. Apply for loans of fixed interest rate if you avail medical loans of a short tenure.

  • Floating Interest Rates:  The interest rates fluctuate in-line with market conditions. Apply for floating interest rate loans if you avail medical loans of a longer tenure.

How to apply for medical loans from banks?

  • Learn about the medical loan and then select the bank which best suits your needs.

  • Apply for the medical loan either online/offline at the bank.

  • The bank checks your eligibility and processes the application.

  • Submit documents for verification.

  • If your loan is approved, you will have to sign on the promissory note which contains banks terms and conditions.

  • The loan amount is disbursed in 2-3 days.

What are the fees banks charge on medical loans?

Banks charge a non-refundable processing fee, which is around 1-2% of the loan amount. Prepayment fees could be 2-4% of the loan outstanding amount if you pay back the loan before the tenure. Late payment fees could be 2-3% of the EMIs on delayed payments. Banks also charge a documentation fee to verify documents.

Does the bank decide type of medical treatment?
