A lot of insurance providers have started to accept the premium payments in the form of monthly instalments or EMIs. The reason behind this is that most people seeking health insurance plans find it difficult to make a single payment towards the policy. Hence, IRDAI has made it mandatory for all insurance companies to accept the monthly premium payments.



Why Was the Provision Introduced?

Majority of people in India do not have health insurance policy. As a matter of fact, the reason behind it is the single large payment made towards the plan. The primary objective to impose this provision is to make medical insurance an affordable product. Further, people who cannot pay the lump sum amount can now pay the same in the form of EMIs.

But do you think this is a great way to promote the importance of medical insurance in the country?

In this article, we will be discussing just that. Let us begin by understanding the pros of purchasing health insurance on EMI.


The Pros of Paying Monthly Instalments Towards Health Insurance

Believe it or not, but every move or provision imposed by IRDAI benefits ordinary people of the country. Here's how we think that paying monthly instalments towards insurance can help you –

  • You get access to health insurance (whether you belong to a small town or an urban city). However, it is bound to benefit the small-town people, as it will turn out to be a lot cheaper this way.

  • In fact, it is beneficial for people living in urban areas, too, as they can pay premiums every month from their income. Moreover, it is an excellent opportunity for the insurance industry to flourish in big cities as well.

  • Thanks to the Internet, you can now seek health insurance online. Moreover, you can easily make your premium payments online through secure online portals. Also, if you are comfortable, then you can set up an automatic deduction of premiums from your account directly. This way, you will not miss out on the instalments.

  • If the insurance industry flourishes because of this, it is bound to offer a varied collection of insurance product to the audience. Not only will it improve the industry, but will also have a positive impact on customer services and enhance the claim process.


The Cons of Paying Monthly Instalments Towards Health Insurance

Now that you have understood the benefits of paying EMIs for health insurance, it is essential to understand the disadvantages as well. Here's a list of cons associated with paying monthly for health insurance –

  • We all know for a fact that whenever we purchase any product with EMI, the instalments made towards it increase the actual cost of the product. Similarly, when it comes to health insurance, you (the policyholder) might end up paying approx. 3 to 5 per cent more, which is considered an enormous amount (taking the sum assured into account). On the other hand, the quarterly premium rates might be 3 per cent more. Whereas, the monthly premium rates might be 5 per cent more expensive than the basic health plan.

  • You will have to opt for health insurance that comes with a policy term of 2 to 3 years or more.

  • Moreover, it is noteworthy that you cannot claim for insurance before paying premiums for at least one year. Alternatively, it is not the case if you make annual premium payments towards health insurance.


To Conclude

Keeping the cons in mind, we still believe that purchasing health insurance with monthly premium instalments is a wise move. Almost all leading and upcoming insurance providers offer this opportunity.

Still, don't believe us?

Here are a few reasons why you should buy health insurance –

  • Rise in medical costs: Due to advancement in the medical field, the cost of medical treatments has undoubtedly increased over the years. Hence, to help you financially cover the expenses, the health insurance coverage will come in handy.

  • Unexpected Health Issues: An appropriate medical insurance will cover you and your family members in case of unforeseen health emergencies.
