Types of Insurance
Health Insurance

A health insurance policy will provide a cover to you and your family against sudden medical contingency or bodily injury.

Every human being is exposed to various health hazards. Medical emergency can strike anyone without pre-warning. The reasons why health insurance is a must: 

  • Medicines have become quite expensive
  • Private hospitals are too expensive
  • Diagnostic charges are beyond common man’s reach
  • Specialists come at a price
  • People opt for Travel Insurance which covers them against medical expenses they may incur while travelling abroad (outside country of residence)

Health risk is a personal risk, which could arise from various factors viz.

a) Physical condition
b) Accident related
c) Occupational related
d) Environment related
e) Life style related
f) Travel related

Motor Insurance

Motor insurance protects you against damage caused to your vehicle or third party if you have an accident. It is a contract between you and the insurance company. You agree to pay the premium and the insurance company agrees to pay your losses as defined in your policy. Motor insurance provides property, liability and medical coverage:

  1. Property coverage pays for damage to or theft of your car.
  2. Liability coverage pays for your legal responsibility to others for bodily injury or property damage.
Home Insurance

Your most important asset is your home.  Fire, earthquakes, and floods are all too often a part of our life today. With natural disasters and man-made accidents not just a possibility, but an eventuality, it is essential that you secure your home from natural and man-made disasters. Home insurance policy makes sure you have a peace of mind by protecting the structure and/or the contents of your home. Home insurance provides compensation for loss of or damage to a home and it’s contents.

Personal Accident Insurance

Accidents occur unexpectedly, many individuals choose to purchase insurance coverage to help family members and loved ones deal with the associated financial instability.

Personal Accident is an insurance cover which is recommended to you and your family in the event of accidental death (which life insurance already does), but also to cover disablement, leading to loss of earning capacity. Personal accident policies cover you for one or more of four contingencies in the event of an accident: death, permanent total disability, permanent partial disability and temporary total disability.

Personal Accident Insurance is inexpensive and it is recommended that you select the highest level of cover available. Even if you already have permanent health insurance, you should also have Personal Accident insurance to provide cover in case of accidents.
