How are health insurance companies offering 1cr cover for slightly higher premiums? What should we look for while choosing these plans?

Hey Sam,

Policy premium is linked to expected claims. As a claim expert I can tell you that I don't see many claims beyond 3 lakhs. So 10-20 lakh or even 1 crore policy is an overkill.

There is no catch in the 1 crore policies. Insurance companies are trying to make a few thousand premium more from customers for a higher cover which mostly they won't be claiming.

It is the same logic that goes in top-up policies of 40-50 lakhs with 5-10 lakh deductible because the possibility of claim is so so low.
