How do I Apply for a Medical Insurance Policy?
The application process isn’t complicated and depending on the coverage, even the premiums payable can be inexpensive or made through instalments. All that’s left to do is apply! Here is your step-by-step guide to getting health insurance:
1. Research medical insurance plans and providers available
Shop around to see what types of medical insurance policies and plans are available as well as which ones apply to you. For instance, women can choose from special policies that cover related illnesses like ovarian cancer and pregnancy complications.
2. Choose a medical insurance plan
Once you have the information you want, decide on the amount of coverage and level of comprehensiveness needed. Basic coverage is usually cheaper to buy and upkeep but also comes at a lower sum insured and with fewer benefits.
3. Decide whether to buy your medical insurance policy directly or from an agent
Most times you will have the option to purchase directly from the insurance company or through an agent. Going with an agent can simplify the process and be most helpful when you want to make a claim. Where else going direct could mean you may have to handle your own claims process in a time of need.
4. Submit your medical insurance application
If you are going direct, you can usually submit an application online, which often includes a questionnaire about your medical history. If you have an agent, he or she will help you fill out the necessary information and make the submission.
5. Pay the premium
Once your policy is approved, you can make the premium payment in a lump-sum amount or follow a payment schedule. Some providers offer bi-annual, quarterly and even monthly payment options. If you don’t pay the premium after the grace period (30 days after the due date) however, your policy is liable to lapse and your coverage may cease.
