Never include your parents in your family floater plan as the premium will charge based on the eldest member as we know more the age more the premium so it is better you buy yourself a separate policy and a separate policy for your parents

1) Look for the comprehensive plan first than senior citizen plan as this senior citizen plan comes with sub-limit and copay

2) Look for the plans which say all daycare treatment is covered (i.e there should be no list of day care ), as the insurance company can say see this daycare is not on the list so will not cover as some PSU specifically says we can cover surgery which is not on the list but on a case by case basis

3) Look for a cashless hospital network in your city

4) Always make full disclosure do not hide anything from insurance companies

These are a few things to keep in mind there can be N number of security checks but these are the main ones I think

Hello Anuj,

Hope you are doing well! The answer shared by Mr. Agrawal is right. It is not recommended you include yourself along with your father in the same floater policy. Also, I highly recommend you to purchase health insurance for yourself. Now is the best time!
