Individual health insurance is purchased by individuals directly from insurance companies. It provides coverage for the individual and, if desired, their dependents.
Ensuring they get the best medical treatment, should anything happen to them, is something you would not have to stress about if you have a suitable health cover.

The lifestyle that people embrace today welcomes health issues. And these issues are not just limited to minor illnesses such as fever, cold or cough. Chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart and kidney disorders are equally common nowadays. Thus, it is more important than ever to secure your health with a comprehensive health insurance plan.
Insurance company negotiates rates on economies of scale for quality services. As medical technology improves and diseases increase, the cost for treatment rises as well and costs for doctor's consultation, diagnosis tests, ambulance charges, operation theatre costs, medicines, room rent, etc. are also continually increasing. All of these could put a considerable strain on your finances if you are not adequately prepared.
No matter how much money you save, fighting a critical illness can be tough. It can end up costing you your entire life’s savings. The expenditure of the treatment, equipment, and medication can be hard to cover on a fixed salary. Health insurance can offer you the security to overcome these expenses and take some of the burdens off your shoulders.
