Term insurance  made accessible  to NRIs with telemedical check-ups

Term insurance made accessible to NRIs with telemedical check-ups

NRI customers who are willing to buy term insurance plans can now easily opt for plans in India that allow them to schedule a video or telemedical check-up from their country of residence.

The pandemic has emphasized the role of technology in underwriting insurance policies. Virtual healthcare has also emerged as a viable solution for millions seeking quality care during this time. At the onset of pandemic, the underwriting norms were tightened and customers were required to undergo physical medical examination, and the cover amounts had also been capped. Now, with relaxed norms, NRIs can get larger covers and that too by opting for telemedicals instead of physical medical check-ups to make term insurance protection more feasible.

According to an official statment from Policy Bazar, NRIs can purchase these plans by searching for them online through net banking or credit and debit cards. Once this is done, a video or telemedical check-up is booked after taking one’s medical history and documentation of pre-existing illnesses into consideration.
