What is PORT-Your Health Insurance Policy?

Porting your health insurance policy involves transferring your existing health insurance plan from one insurance company to another while retaining the accumulated benefits like waiting period, NCB, and more. It allows you to switch to a different insurer without losing continuity of coverage. This process ensures that you continue to enjoy the benefits accrued under your previous policy while benefiting from potentially better features and services offered by the new insurer. Porting can be beneficial if you’re dissatisfied with your current insurer or if you find a policy that better suits your needs with another company.

⛦ Example Scenario: Ramesh had an existing health insurance policy with his current insurer. However, he noticed that there were many clauses that resulted in deductions from his claim amount. He learned about porting and decided to switch his policy to a different insurance company that offered a policy with better terms, including no deductions on claims.

How Porting Helps Ramesh:
By porting his policy to the new insurance company, Ramesh can enjoy several benefits:
1. No Deductions: The new policy he is considering has no deductions on claim amounts. This means that when he makes a claim, he will receive the entire claim amount without any deductions, ensuring he gets the full benefit of his policy coverage.
2. Better Terms: The new policy has terms and conditions that are more favorable to him, providing him with better coverage and benefits compared to his old policy.
3. Continuity of Coverage: Porting allows Ramesh to retain the benefits he has already accumulated under his old policy, such as waiting periods, no-claim bonus (NCB), and other advantages. He doesn’t lose the benefits he has earned over time.
4. Improved Claim Experience: With the new policy, Ramesh can expect a smoother and more transparent claim settlement process, without the hassles of deductions that he faced with his previous insurer.

In summary, porting his health insurance policy enables Ramesh to switch to a new insurer that offers better terms and conditions, including no deductions on claims. This move ensures that he can fully utilize his policy coverage without any financial setbacks due to deductions, providing him with peace of mind during medical emergencies.
