Got rejected while trying to get insurance coverages?
While the importance of getting insurance coverage when you are young and healthy cannot be overstated, we know life sometimes hits you when it is least expected. Worse still, adding salt to the wound by getting rejected or exclusion for insurance coverages after having a medical condition.
Sadly, the importance of insurance is usually realised only when it is too late to act upon it.
However, this will soon be a thing of the past, now that you or your close ones can still be covered with this first of its kind term insurance plan from Prudential.
