Those days are gone when agents were the only source to buy a health insurance policy. Today, the accessibility has been improved to a great extent with the advent of the internet. One can sit at the comfort of his/her house and can shop for things using the internet.  There are various policy procedures that have helped a lot of people in purchasing a health insurance policy.
One of the most well known ways of issuing a policy without the help of agents is ‘Buy Online’. There are many providers that have brought the ‘Buy Online’ facility that allows patrons to buy insurance policies online at their convenience. One of the advantages of this policy procedure is that a person is able to read the terms and conditions of the plan from an insurer’s website. He/she can be informed about various offers and discounts available. A person can also go through the policy wordings and can understand the plan before buying the same to avoid confusion later.
This means saves a lot of time, as there is no need to schedule meeting with agents, creating a proposal, comparing products and so on. A person can carry out all these tasks online. There are many providers that give this freedom to people. A policy can be issued online in just a few clicks of the mouse. 
In addition to this, there is an option of ‘Contact Us’ on the insurer’s website. It is also a user-friendly means, through which a person can leave his/her contact details, and the company’s representative would soon contact him/her. One can also use the IVR service and can call at the toll-free numbers for the same. This telephonic call is a direct communication between an individual and the company’s representative. There are some insurers that even offer the facility of SMS. What could be simpler than that? Typing a message in a definite format and sending it across to the given number will help an individual in seeking the required assistance. All these means are looked after by the experts at backend such that an applicant can get the required assistance immediately. 
All these means bring the individual in touch with a representative, who can further assist in issuing the policy. Buying the policy online is the best means that not only keeps a person away from policy issuance hassles but is also a way to convenience, comfort and ease.
