      Great hub Deepak. My profession is medical administration, so I've written very little about it. I prefer philosophy, music, literature and cooking than my own profession, but my profession is very lucrative...

      Voted up on your wonderful hub

      Hey Deepak,

      That’s an excellent read. I too am planning to insure myself with a health insurance. As per my research I feel Royal Sundaram provides the most suitable plan for me. It has the health insurance benefits I was looking out for and is quite affordable as well. Moreover they even provide discounts on premiums for online purchase.
