Planning to take the best health insurance for my parents. Age: 70 & 60 - Both are medically fit & fine.

Looked up for various plans & got confused basically with Max Bupa Vs HDFC Ergo.

Could you please suggest the best or any alternative?

Thank you in advance!!

Heard about Max Bupa health companion and HDFC Ergo Gold. Sum Insured not yet finalized. First looking for best service provider / insurers.

Dear Team Beshak, Thank you for replying! Yes, I read the article. It was very helpful and found option 2 would be suitable. However all the plans available in option 2 has copayments. Can you please advise with 0 copayment & maximum coverage!

Hey Roopesh, Health Companion from Max Bupa is a good plan, better than Health Suraksha plan from HDFC Ergo. But Companion is a comparable plan in reference to HDFC Ergo Optima Restore. Companion allows entry age above 65 yrs, not sure about Optima Restore. You can pick any one out of Companion or Restore, should be fine.

Make sure you declare medical history of your parents carefully.
