A ‘Free Look Period’ is a period of 15 days from the date of receipt of the policy that a policyholder, in this case you, have to review the entire health insurance plan. If you disagree with any of the terms or conditions mentioned in the policy, you have the option of returning the policy by stating the reasons for the objection. Following this, you are entitled to a refund of the premium paid, provided no claim has been made under this mediclaim insurance policy (subject only to a deduction of the expenses incurred by the company on medical examination and the stamp duty charges). Please note that this facility is not applicable on renewal and portability cases.
A grace period refers to a period of 30 days immediately following the premium due date of the medical insurance policy. During this period you can pay the premium of your expired policy and avail continuity benefits such as waiting periods and coverage of pre-existing disease.
