Quick question - do you own a car? Or are you planning to buy one?
A 4-seater? 6-seater?Whichever model you choose, one thing is certain - the car should have enough space for all. Right? So should your policy. It is best to protect the entire family in one single plan. One policy to manage, one premium to pay and one cover for everyone!Some insurers even cover joint families and extended members. A little extra premium, and you can cover your in-laws, brothers, sisters. and their families, too!
Parents are equally loved, whether they are yours or your spouse's
Family Floater v/s Individual
Both the plans are quite different, especially in terms of premiums. If you go for individual plans, you will have to buy a separate policy for each family member. It would mean higher premiums for lower individual cover amount. You would also have to manage multiple policies.
In family health insurance, you can go for a much higher collective cover, that too for relatively lower premium on an average. These plans normally would turn out to be cheaper than multiple individual policies
Family Health Insurance cover?
A family health insurance policy covers all basics of health insurance - hospitalization expenses, ambulance charges, surgery cost, day-care procedures etc. There are many other benefits which also come with these plans
Before choosing your family health insurance plan, do look at all the features, benefits and exclusions. Then decide which one is best for your family. Some family plans allow a very easy inclusion of new family members, like a spouse after marriage or a new-born baby.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Still, life will have its challenges and some health issues might strike from time-to-time. Hence, Medical Insurance! These policies cover for hospitalization treatments, which can either be paid directly to the hospital as cashless, or reimbursed.

1.Easy and Hassle-Free
Same as the car example we saw earlier. Single plan for the whole family. No multiple policies to manage. No multiple premiums to remember to pay. One policy and you're done!
2.Add Family Members with Ease
A family is like a tree. It keeps growing. In a family health plan you can easily add new members whenever needed. A bit of additional premium and they are covered. Heaven forbid! But if family loses some elders, the policy will still continue and coverage for surviving family members won't get impacted
3.One Family, One Plan and One Savings:
Some health insurance plans offer discounts for adding more members. Yes, you read it right! In a family floater plan, you can avail of discounted premiums and incentives. Some conditions may apply
4.Parents and In-Laws can be added, too
With small additional premium you can even add your parents-in-law. All elders in the family can then be in one single plan
