The premium for a health insurance plan is paid to the insurance company on an annual basis, based on the quantity of coverage (sum insured) you want to keep. The insurer pays the hospital at the time of hospitalisation or the occurrence of the insured event, so the policyholder does not have to worry about medical expenditures.
Unlike term insurance, which is required for the family’s breadwinner, health insurance is recommended for all family members. Individual health insurance plans, Family Floater plans, and even Critical Illness health insurance are available to pick from.
Individual health insurance plans, often known as Mediclaim plans, are the most frequent type of health insurance plan. They pay for hospital expenditures if you stay in the hospital for at least 24 hours, as well as certain day-care treatments.

While medication and physical therapy remain the first line of treatment module, surgical intervention is only preferred when these fails to provide relief.
