What is the core difference between term insurance and health insurance? Out of the two, which is more beneficial in the long run?The core difference is, term insurance is to help -if you die, where as health insurance is to help you live long. Term insurance is for securing your family from financial crisis, if you die. Health insurance is to secure you and your family from financial crisis if either you or any of your family member is hospitalized. Both are very important to have. Instead of choosing one out of these 2, I suggest you to go for a super top up policy for health insurance and go for a plain term insurance atleast to a minimum of 50 Lakhs Sum Insured.

Is there any health insurance that covers maternity without a waiting period?This is possible only under corporate group health insurance. Retail Health insurance does not cover health issues which are planned and certain to happen. If insurance is provided for maternity with out waiting period, every person will opt for health insurance just before maternity. Insurance companies runs on the concept of 2 or 3 incurring loss out of 100. So the collected premium should be sufficient for payment of claims incurred. If this ratio is reversed that 90 to 95 people are claiming then how will an insurance company manage to pay the claim? There are policies in market where there is a waiting period as low as 9 months. But those plans are not useful as premium is very very high.
