Importance of Health Insurance in Our Daily Lives

Posted by Aman / on 02/23/2010 / 4 Comments


The main reason I bought a health insurance policy was to invest my money in a place where tax could be saved. It was not that I thought I needed it, I bought is simply because I wanted to save money! Given that I was least interested in the mediclaim policy, I did not bother learning or going in depth of the policy cover. I never appreciated its true potential. The Apollo Munich mediclaim policy that I had bought gave cover to me and my family for a whole range of illnesses but I never knew about it.

The significance of a medical insurance policy shook me when my mother suffered a heart attack a few days back. It was the family mediclaim policy that came to our rescue. By no means could I alone have afforded her treatment. Being the sole earning member in the family, I had a hard time thinking of methods to cope with the financial needs of the emergency.

At first I considered the Apollo DKV (now Apollo Munich) plan to be one of those which is full of hitches to make sure you can never really use the plan. But I'm glad I was wrong. The policy worked out terrifically for me. It's not until you almost drown that you realize how deep the water is!!

    The faster people realise the above, the better. The importance is not for tax saving, nor is it for the poor... a health plan is to know that come what may you can get treated. It just gives people the confidence to face anything and live life without the fear and tension of falling ill. I support Apollo Munich in trying to spread this awareness through its ads.

    Saving tax is only an added benefit to health insurance, which is a must for financial security at such a time, when the costs of quality treatment are going beyond the means of most people.
