Evaluating different health insurance plans and choosing the perfect insurance plan that fits our needs can be challenging. Given the multiple options, different benefits, and all the hidden terms and conditions - finding the right policy may feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. 

Well, that's where an insurance advisor can help you save the day! An expert who knows the ins and outs of the health insurance business can guide you through the process and find the ideal plan just for you.

Who is a Health Insurance Advisor?

An insurance advisor is a trained and experienced professional who helps individuals, families, and businesses understand the nitty-gritties of different insurance options. Health insurance advisors provide guidance and recommendations on selecting the best health insurance plans that meet their clients' specific needs and budgets. They have in-depth knowledge of various health insurance policies offered by different insurers. Therefore, they can compare coverage options, premiums, and benefits and recommend plans accordingly.  

But you may wonder, “Why do I need an insurance expert when I can go on the internet and do it all myself?” Well, here's your answer!

6 Reasons Why You Need to Consult a Health Insurance Advisor

  1. Extensive Product Knowledge 
    There are so many plans out there with different features, benefits, and coverage options that it can be really overwhelming to shortlist one! Health insurance advisors have industry experience and extensive knowledge about the ins and outs of each plan. They'll consider your unique needs and guide you to choose the best options!  
  2. Personalized Guidance 
    One-size-fits-all solutions never work when it comes to health insurance. Suppose your parents have multiple pre-existing illnesses or need coverage for alternative treatments like Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy. That's where a health insurance advisor can provide personalized guidance to choose a plan with shorter waiting periods for pre-existing disease coverage or coverage for alternative treatments. 
  3. Decoding Fine Print and Terminology 
    If you are reading the fine terms and conditions of an insurance policy for the first time, you know that the struggle is real. A whole lot of legal terms and jargon can leave your head spinning! An advisor can decode the fine print, cut through the clutter, and simplify the core offerings of the policies for your understanding.  
  4. Unbiased Advice 
    If you have searched for health insurance plans online, you must have been bombarded with flashy ads, persistent marketing, and spam calls. Algorithms have made it difficult to get unbiased information. Besides, there are numerous insurance agents who will try to sell insurance plans regardless of your requirements. Insurance experts, such as the ones registered on the Beshak platform, provide unbiased advice as they have no hidden agendas or backend revenue-sharing arrangements with insurance companies. 
  5. Hassle-Free Purchase Process
    The paperwork involved in the health insurance purchase process can feel like a maze. An insurance advisor can help simplify the process and handle all the nitty-gritties.  
  6. Assistance in Claim Processing 
    When the situation arises, and you need to make a claim, having an advisor by your side is simply a godsend. They will guide you through the claim process and ensure you have all the necessary documentation to process your claim quickly and efficiently.  

How to Find a Good Insurance Advisor

Now that you have understood the benefits of consulting and advisors, it’s time to find one for yourself. Consider the following aspects to find the right insurance expert: 

  • Shortlist the advisors based on the type of insurance you need. If you need health insurance, then look for advisors who specialize in health insurance. 
  • Check their number of years of experience. 
  • Verify if the advisor holds any professional credentials or certifications.  
  • Read reviews and testimonials about them. 
  • Check their communication efforts and timeliness in responding to your queries.
