How to Get Truly Comprehensive Insurance
We all know how important it is to have insurance, but finding the right kind of insurance takes a lot more than knowing which premiums are the most affordable. After all, just being covered is quite different from being truly protected.
To save money, you might be tempted to choose the cheapest option available. However, doing that might mean being left high and dry in a time of need if you aren’t properly covered. Watch the video below to make sure you’re not caught in a nasty mess without a safety net!
So, to avoid having any bad situations happening to you while unprotected, you have to determine whether your health insurance is giving you the most comprehensive protection you can afford. But what does comprehensive mean? A number of things, namely…
Protection for Unlikely Candidates
With life insurance for example, some insurance providers automatically refuse you if you are diagnosed with certain health conditions. This is especially true for the 3 “high conditions” (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high BMI).
However, many are unable to qualify for a decent life insurance because of these diagnoses. Even worse is that those with these conditions are more inclined to suffer from certain critical illnesses (heart attack, kidney failure, stroke, and cancer), leaving them doubly unprotected.
Total Protection for Your Wellbeing
The scope for comprehensiveness when it comes to medical insurance is usually signaled by availability of panel hospitals, outpatient treatments, surgical fees, ambulance fees, and plenty of other perks that come along with your medical card. However, what if you have a condition which needs to be carefully monitored and managed? Will your insurance provider go the extra mile to protect your wellbeing?
Above and Beyond Value Added Elements
The most basic (mandatory) motor insurance bought by motorists allows vehicle owners to be protected from having to pay damages of another car in the event of an accident. A more involved policy might include protection from theft and fire damage, but the more common option for a wider range of protection would be ‘comprehensive motor cover’, which includes all the above as well as losses/damages due to accidents.
However, the additional services offered for similar types of coverage can vary greatly.
Flexibility to Address Various Needs
As far as home insurance is concerned, you have your houseowner policy, which protects your house from fires, car crashes, natural disasters, etc. Then there’s the householder policy, which covers the contents of your property and the personal effects belonging to you or your family.
But considering the many different ways that people can own and use property, these solutions may be overgeneralized. Some may not be getting the full protection they need, while others may be stuck paying for more protection than they want.
Coverage All Over
So when you’re looking for insurance, remember to keep in mind that not all policies are equal even if they might seem that way. Because coverage isn’t just about the money, it’s also about being cared for and having the peace of mind to focus on the important things in your life instead of worrying about what can go wrong.
