Rakshabandhan is around the corner and many of you are probably thinking about the gifts you are going to give to your lovely sisters. The chocolate boxes or pendants are too main stream; why not choose something more unorthodox this time? How about a health insurance plan?
This festival is celebrated to strengthen brother-sister
relationship and the brother vows to protect his sister whenever possible. What
could be the better and more practical way to fulfill this promise than getting
a Health Insurance for her? A health insurance plan provides a ready financial
backup to meet medical expenses in a hospital. A person can fall sick or get
injured any time. Being a brother it is not very practical for you to save your
sister from getting sick but you can certainly arrange for timely treatment.
This would be the more useful gift that you would be giving
to your sister than some fancy item. I got this idea when my maternal uncle
gifted a health cover to my mother last Rakshabandhan. And you may call it a co-incidence
that she actually got to use it the same year as she contracted typhoid last
December and had to stay in a hospital for four days. The bill of INR 70K was
paid cashless by the insurance company.
A health insurance plan would provide long Term utility and
as a gift it would be a very thoughtful one. It would imply how much you care
for her. It is a perfect chance to deepen your bonding with your sister. You
won’t want anything to happen to her, do you?
Start comparing health plans online to get the best rates
and attractive features in the plan. Do it online for better comparison and
transparent transaction. You may also explore other insurance plans that could
be gifted to your sister. Some life insurance plans like a term plan or a ULIP
could be good options as well. You may take consultation from an insurance
advisor to get more information on the same.
The whole idea behind this discussion is to give her
something that has lasting importance. These gifts may not look very glittery
from the outside but has much better utility than conventional gifts. These
gifts match perfectly with the Rakshabandhan theme as they actually provide
protection to your sister in the most desperate times of life. So be a good
brother and start your plan comparison. Surprise your sister with a gift she
least expects from you. Wish you a very happy Rakshabandhan!!!
