It is really pathetic to know that many Indian people believe that health insurance is not a worthy investment and thus, do not buy these products. These people realize the significance of these products only when their friends or relatives fall sick and face financial hardships. Learning from the experience of others is always good. It is always a good decision to be prepared for such circumstances of life that may bring a great change in an individual’s life. A person should buy a health insurance policy so that there is no financial stress faced by the family at the time of settling long hospitalization or treatment bills. 
One should buy health insurance at the earliest, as these products come along with several benefits. First of all, they ensure medical security, which helps the insured seek quality medical treatment without any financial anxiety. Thus, they make medical treatment affordable and accessible. 
Secondly, financial assistance at the time of medical emergency offers peace of mind, which helps insured individuals and their family members live their lives to a greater extent. 
Thirdly, a person gets access to several medical facilities on buying these products. One such facility is Cashless Hospitalization, which permits the insured to seek quality healthcare in network hospitals on a cashless basis. The insurer settles medical bills directly with the hospital for the policy holder who is using this facility. The other facility that has helped a lot of people is Healthline.  It gives the insured an access to medical experts on phone call, to discuss any health issues that they might be facing. 
Fourthly, it makes medical check-ups easy, as there are many plans that offer routine check-ups to help the insured stay healthy and get the disease, if any, diagnosed at the earliest. 
In addition to this, research shows that an insured individual is able to have a better lifestyle, as compared to an uninsured one. A person should purchase health insurance that offers comprehensive coverage so that medical treatment can be made almost free. There are plans that offer coverage for outpatient consultation, diagnostic tests, pharmacy costs etc. Thus, a person needs to be careful at the time of buying such products. It makes one’s life stress-free, as he/she or/and family members, as the case may be, get adequate coverage against health risks.
