How to Renew Health Insurance?

Your health insurance policy needs to be renewed annually for you to continue availing its benefits. Nowadays, renewal has turned into a quick and easy process and should ideally be done 15 days prior to the expiry of your health insurance policy. In case, something unfortunate happens and medical expenses arise, it is always better to have the benefits your health insurance policy offers.
Health Insurance can simply be renewed by signing out a mandate form at the time of taking the policy. You need to maintain the required premium amount in your Bandhan Bank account at the time of renewal. The Bank account will be debited by the requisite premium amount 15 days prior to the renewal date. You will be receiving the renewed policy document in your registered E mail ID maintained with the Bank.
Moreover, for each year if no claims are made, a no claim bonus will be added to the total sum insured up to a maximum amount of the sum insured opted at the time of taking the policy.
