Healthcare costs for hospitalisation in India have risen sharply in recent years keeping with global trends. Many a families have seen their finances going for a complete toss due to unexpected costs on hospitalisation of a family member. Despite increasing consciousness about medical insurance just about 12 per cent of Indian population is covered with some sort of health insurance.

The options are too many but you need to consider few factors before taking a health cover.
