One never knows when one’s health can fail. Health is an aspect of life that is fraught with most uncertainties and being unprepared in those situations can prove to be financially detrimental. Health insurance cover just costs a little in terms of premiums but provides adequate cover to pay for medical expenses should there arise such a need.
If policy holder and covered members under health policy are struck by health related problems as covered under the policy and during any time when the policy is in force then they are entitled to receive treatment expenses from the insurer which can be up to the limit of sum assured opted under the policy.
In addition to this primary benefit, health insurance also confers a dual benefit for those who fall under the income tax bracket.
As per section 80 D of the Income Tax Act 1961, tax payers who purchase health insurance policy are eligible for deductions in taxable amount. Tax payers should most certainly take advantage of this feature as if they purchase a health insurance policy they will be taxed less by a certain amount and that amount can almost be equal to policy premium or be a large part of it, depending upon the cover amount sought.

Linking Of Aadhaar With Insurance Policy Is Mandatory, Says IRDA
November 13, 2017
On Wednesday, 8th Nov 2017, the Insurance Regulatory And Development Authority Of India (IRDA) said that the linking of Aadhar number with insurance plans is compulsory and asked insurance companies to implement the statutory norms.
“The Authority clarifies that, linkage of Aadhaar number to insurance policies is mandatory under the Prevention of Money Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017,” the IRDA said.
In the last June, the government of India had informed about the Prevention of Money Laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017, making Aaadhar and PAN/Form 60 compulsory for getting financial services that include insurance also and asked policyholders and companies for linking the existing policies with the same.
In a discussion with all life and general insurance companies, IRDA said the rules have “statutory force” and they have to implement the rule without waiting for the further instructions.
Right now, there are 24 life insurers and 33 general insurance companies operating in the country.
Although, there are no deadlines that have been given by IRDA for the completion of the process, as per the circular, it has to be done as soon as possible. Some insurance companies also said that this can also result in the delay of payout in a few cases. Aadhaar is now also compulsory for financial transactions of Rs 50,000 and above. Likewise, one has to link one’s Aadhaar number with the mobile number latest by February 6, 2018.
