Is Name really a concern in Health Insurance Policy?
Posted By Jay MEMBER 16 Aug, 2021

This is just a basic question. Recently I took policy, where I have been asked to fill the details of Full Name as per aadhar. Conventionally we use our name as First Name and Surname as Last Name in every form/application we fill. But in my aadhar, it is given my surname followed by my name(which has 2 words). I'm not sure what I have to fill in which fields. I know this is very basic question, but I don't want to take any risk which could happen at the time of Claim? Would it really matters if we give order of our name incorrect?

Suppose my name is SURNAME RAVI SHEKAR as per aadhar

In the application, I have been asked to fill in the order First Name Middle Name Last Name as per the aadhar. Should I give as SURNAME RAVI SHEKAR or SURNAME SHEKAR RAVI? He is called as Ravi primarily, but I given his Ravi as middle name, it doesn't make sense. I'm in total confusion. One more thing, website is not allowing multiple words in fields. Could you please answer my question with the above example? Is it that much important to consider the order?

Kenko Health - Looks like a scam?
Posted By Harikrishnan Bhadran MEMBER 08 Mar, 2022

Have anyone heard about this company? I was attracted by their insurance model that's quite different from others. They make the joining appear premium and exclusive by propping up something called "Kenko Score". Once we pass their score test, we are being given the option to select the plans. They claim that they will reimburse 50% of the OP and medicine expenses, doctor fees etc. The catch (which they don't clearly say) is these claims are applicable only from "Kenko certified" hospitals & clinics. After I learnt about this, I tried to cancel the plan. You will be surprised to know that we cannot contact them ! Only they will be able to contact us if we clicked a button on their website and the support executive only talks about sales and once we tell them that the requirement is to cancel, they will say that my query will be "passed" on the relevant team and they will call back. This never happened and in parallel their sales team goes on spamming your number.

I escalated this even to their "Founder & CEO", but no response. There is no much info about this company in IRDA website too. Terrifying indeed.

Request Beshak team to carry out a discrete investigation. At least the outcome will save hundreds of people from this scam.

Do you have to report health issues after you have bought the insurance policy?
Posted By Questions On Social Media MEMBER 04 Sep, 2020

I have following doubts sir.

My parents have national insurance for one lakh from past 5 years.At the purchase time'my parents did not have any health issues.Right now my mother is taking medicine for bp occassionsly as an d when bp comes.

My father takes some tablets for memory.Apart from that they dont have anything.They are age 72 father and mother 62.

Each year at the time of renewal'the agent takes money a nd renews it.we have not said to him about our current health situation nor he mother says 'it is just occassional bp problem so it might not be neccessary to inform the agent about it and abt my father she feels same for my father.

Right now as per yur opinion i have taken 3 lakhs insurance from oriental pnb senior apart from national insurance as well-To my surprise they did not ask any details and issued the policy.

In general we are financially weak.

So now keepinf all this info are we are on right track so as to not get rejected if we have health problems or do i need to rectify any thing to be on right path.

Apart from this insurance problem' sir my parents havve 4 lakhs saving and they are dependant on that for some income from it with less risk.

What investment options might be good in tbat situation.

Could yu let me know about these two issues mentioned
