A person purchased a family floater plan with an insurance amount of Rs 10 lakh to cover his family. The family consists of his wife and their two children. During the policy period, he gets dengue and has to be hospitalized. About 3 lakh rupees are spent in his treatment.
Under a family floater plan, they are able to claim this amount from their insurer and receive the amount after submitting the required documents. Under his family floater plan, he still has Rs 7 lakh left. These can be useful for themselves and other family members when needed.

 Insurance regulator Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDA) amended the rules for Black Listed Hospitalization in the event of pre-existing diseases and emergencies to benefit policyholders. Under these changes, if a person suffers from a disease within three months of the issue of the policy, then the insurance company will not be able to dismiss its claim. At present, claims in which the insured is not accepted for three months after the issuance of claims for high blood pressure, diabetes, and problems such as respiratory disease, which are increasing rapidly.

  2. In another change, the insured will now be able to get treatment at the Black Listed Hospital in Emergency. Conditions of this emergency include events such as a heart attack, stroke, or accident in which the victim requires early treatment. Insurance companies put some hospitals on the black list, which did not accept the claim for treatment.
  3. Increase in time period for policy revival
  4. IRDA has asked the insurance companies to extend the revival time period to get life insurance policies reactivated. Now you will get 3 years from the date of unpaid premium in ULIP plan instead of 2. At the same time, now there will be 5 years to get the policy revived for non-linked insurance products.
  5. Change in surrender value rules
  6. The rules regarding surrender value have also become according to the policy holder. When you decide to leave the time of pre maturity from the plan, the amount you receive is called the surrender value. In case of life insurance policy, if you think of ending your policy for any reason, then you will not have to wait for three years to get the guaranteed surrender value, but now you will be able to end the policy in two years only.
