Our View

A health insurance policy for those looking to cover family under a single sum insured. A major drawback is that this policy can be renewed only up to 69 years of age. When the policyholder outlives maximum policy renewal term, he will have to purchase a new policy at an age where either insurers are not willing to insure a high risk life or they demand very high premiums with lots of exclusions and conditions. Policies offering lifelong renewal option must be preferred.
