Hello Asutosh,

You can reduce family members from a health insurance policy. It is entirely your call. Hence, the strategy you mentioned is smart, and can work. You can discuss the splitting of the insurance with your insurance company at the time of renewal. In case this insurer does not agree, you can always delete the wife and kid in your example from the existing policy, and buy a fresh policy for them, in a different insurance company.
