About Health Insurance Renewal

Health insurance should be an important aspect of everyone’s financial planning and goals. It offers protection to not just the person insured but also the loved ones of the individual. So, when you are planning your finances, and working out your goals, make sure to include health insurance in your plan. This is particularly important if you are a key breadwinner for your family. Health insurance allows you to concentrate on the other aspects of your life without stress, as you know that your family is protected.

Once you get yourself a health insurance policy, you should also pay attention to the period for which you have sought cover. You should get your health insurance renewal on time so your policy does not lapse. If a policy lapses, you may lose your benefits such as waiting period benefits and the no-claim bonus. The waiting period is the time before which the insured will not be able to claim the benefits. 

Your insurer sends you notifications about health insurance renewal, and you should make sure to keep track and follow up. Typically, a grace period is allowed - this could be about 15 days from the date of expiry.

However, thanks to the availability of an online renewal process, you can effortlessly get your health insurance renewal done. You could opt for your Bajaj Allianz health insurance renewal online.
