To anticipate these high and unpredictable health costs, one of the ways that you can use is to follow a health insurance program. In general, health insurance programs protect and provide certain benefits to the customer when he or she is sick, accident or in need of other medical services.

There are two most common types of health insurance programs:
  • Daily Care Benefit (Hospital income/Hospital Cash Plan)
  • Medical expenses Compensation (hospital benefit)

Previously, Ari had paid the Hospital Cash Plan insurance premiums with a contract of compensation agreement of RP1 million/day for inpatient expenses. This means, Ari will get RP6 million as the benefit of the Cash Plan Hospital.

Regardless of the cost of Ari hospitalizations, whether the cost is larger or smaller, the insurance company will charge RP6 million during the sick 6 days. In other words if the money is left, then it will not hurt if you want to use it for anything else.

Insurance companies will not be afraid of experiencing losses because the average cost in the hospital has been calculated with maturity. Inflation costs every year, which is usually 20% of the price of the year has also been considered.

1. Adapt to needs

Health insurance with cash plan system is only suitable for use as secondary insurance. First calculate how much your needs are before buying it, for example the cost inflation of the hospital makes your inpatient stay up to RP2 million per day. While you have health insurance that only provide hospitalization benefits of RP1 million/day. That way, you can buy a cash plan with a compensation of RP1 million per day.

2. Adjust to the large budget

The maximum ideal insurance fee will take 10% of the income. If it exceeds that, then it will be feared to disrupt our financial cash flow. Therefore, besides the need factor, you should also adjust it to the budget capability. Currently we can find a wide range of cash plan products with micro Premium.

So, it is a king to do an insurance track record with an easy claims system. Generally, the process requires a maximum of 14 working days. If you want an easy claim system, then choose a reputable insurance company. Also, make sure that you choose insurance according to the benefits purchased.

Benefits that ordinary health insurance doesn't have

Usually, health insurance will only provide benefits for inpatient expenses caused by the risk of illness. Health insurance will not be willing to bear a fee if you are treated ill by accident. What you need to remember, the insurance customer will be better if you want to read the policy and consult first before buying insurance to avoid any dispute later on.
