  • Room Rent of Your Hospital:

The room rent is another factor that you should look before choosing the mediclaim policy. The room rent which is payable naturally differs in accordance with the health insurance policy. Some insurers limit the rent by a certain percentage according to their policy with respect to the sum insured. You should look for an insurer who doesn't put a cap on the room rent.


  • Choose Plan with Accordance to Your Age:

You should choose the medical policy for yourself and others keeping in mind their ages as the policy differs in accordance with the age of the insured. Young individuals can choose their claim keeping in mind their marital status and their employment status. Some insurers also provide special facilities for senior citizens. Quite similarly, policies issued on family floater basis also have their own set of unique features. Some insurers also cover special needs for newborn babies. You can also go for top-up plans which will also benefit you in the long term.


  • Research About the Network Hospitals Covered:

While choosing your mediclaim you should do some prior research about which hospitals are covered under the mediclaim policy. You should gather knowledge about what are the other hospitals in the hospital chain that is covered. Also, keep in mind those hospitals where you will be able to avail cashless service.


  • Check the Premiums Carefully
