    Buying a health insurance policy is a challenging job now-a-days, there a lot of fake companies that come up in the market. After you select with which company you’re going to ensure, you should look at other following things:-

    – Comprehensive Coverage
    – Cashless facility available.
    – Which hospitals are covered?
    – Enrollment criteria
    – Premium amount
    – Claim facility, etc.

    Even Vishnu has covered some of the notable points.

    One cannot expect all the benefits in one plan. However, the things which comes to my mind when thinking about my health insurance policy are below.

    > Covering Outpatient Expenses (Fever etc..) other than Hospitalization
    > Covering Existing Diseases from Day 1 (or cover as soon as 1 year)
    > Umbrella Cover (instead of limiting cap on each family member)
    > Covering Pre and Post Maternity Expenses (including scans etc..)
    > No cap or reasonable cap for Maternity Expenses (My insurer has a cap of 30k for free delivery and 50k for Cesarian)
    > Covering Dental Expenses
    > Number of days available to claim should be more (mine, 3 months for OPD and 45 days for Hospitalization)
    > Less documentation for claim (My insurer asks even the original CT scan for claims)
    > If no claim made in entire year, bonus of increase in cover
    > If discontinued, ease with which it can be revived
    > Facility to add only necessary riders
