I have United India health insurance since 2009. I have paid a regular premium with only one claim for hysterectomy in 2012. My renewal date is 12/8/2021. I want to port my UIIC insurance. I have sent a proposal form to HDFC Ergo online for porting with my 2 months back medical test details so that I can get the exact loading amount if any. I am taking medication for hypothyroidism, hypertension and cholesterol at the moment, very minimum dosage. I have sent those details too. According to them the procedure is to pay a premium then you will receive a consent call which will decide about medical test requirements and loading amount if any. For any reason, if we want to discontinue, they will refund the full amount paid by us. This procedure of porting is not mentioned clearly on the website so all are non-proof. My query is: How much I should trust them? I was interested in family floater with my husband, who doesn't have any diseases at present. This is a new policy for him. So no loading for him for sure. HDFC ERGO advisor is suggesting me to go for individual policy as floater has more chance of rejection than individual policy for both of us. So my second query is: Will loading be charged according to floater premium which is almost double than the individual policy? My husband’s new policy without any diseases and mine is porting with pre-existing diseases. Please advise whether individual or floater is better for us with reasons. Seeking your help as soon as possible.
Ans: For your first query it is advisable to speak with the insurance company you wish to port to for understanding the exact procedure for porting. You may also wish to engage a trusted insurance agent to help you with the porting process as they will be fully abreast with the procedure and will guide you well.

Remember to ensure that you fully disclose your existing medical condition at the time of application itself.

As regards your second query it is advisable to go for separate individual policy for your husband because basis your current health status there are high chances of the insurance company charging higher premium for a floater.
