Most of the Health Insurance Policies offered by the General Insurance companies in India have waiting periods during which certain pre existing diseases are excluded in the coverage. They are excluded for certain predefined period (number of years) before they are covered i.e. The Policy holder is expected to have continuous cover for the predefined period before the pre existing diseases are covered under the policy. Portability will ensure that these accrued benefits are transferred (without any dilution) to the new insurer at the time of renewal and porting and the consumer do not lose on these accrued benefits while opting to switch the insurer using Health Insurance Portability.
