Hello Vikrant,

In our experience, occasional alcohol intake on a standalone basis has not been a reason for premium loading in health insurance. The reason for premium loading will usually be something more serious - like chronic health conditions, multiple chronic diseases (like Hypertension and Diabetes together), obesity, addiction, or near addiction (excessive consumption) to alcohol or smoking.
