United India Private Car Insurance Plans

In India, many car-owners still feel that insurance is a forced requirement. The reason behind this thinking is the inability to understand the concept of car insurance. United India Insurance has tried to make the process of buying, renewing and claiming an insurance policy very basic and easy. Once you understand the different aspects of car insurance, you would be able to realise the benefits it brings along with it.

  1. Liability Only Insurance - 3 years
    Liability insurance is also called Third-Party insurance. This kind of insurance is considered to be the most basic type of insurance. Mandated under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988 it has the lowest premium. Liability insurance covers the injury or damage that your car causes to another person or his property. The damages that are suffered by your car are not covered.
  2. Package Car Insurance Policy
    Package car insurance is a comprehensive car insurance policy that provides wider protection and covers almost all kinds of damages that your car may undergo. Apart from own-damage that result from collision, theft, man-made or natural disasters, your car would also be covered against third-party liabilities.
  3. Standalone Own-Damage Car Insurance Policy
    When you already have third-party insurance but also want to cover the damages to your car that may arise because of the collision, theft, man-made or natural disasters, you can opt for a standalone cover.
  4. Bundled Cover for Private Car
    When you buy a bundled policy for your car, you can get the liability only cover for a period of 3 years and own-damage for one or more years.
  5. Personal Accident Cover for Owner/Driver

In case of physical harm to the insured person, the company pays compensation depending upon the scale of the following:  

  1. Death
  2. Loss of limbs
  3. Permanent disability
  4. Add-Ons
    If you wish to further add to the coverage under own-damage, you have the option to include add-ons to your policy. The add-ons offered by the company are:
  • Return to Invoice
    If your car goes for total loss or gets stolen, with this add-on you can receive compensation that would be equal to the invoice value of the car.
  • Nil Depreciation
    In case of a partial loss claim, there will be no depreciation deductions.
  • Medical Expenses
    With an additional payment, you can buy this cover and cover the medical expenses that you would have to incur in case of accidental injury.
  • Personal Effects 
    When your car gets damaged or stolen, the company will indemnify the loss or damage of personal effect. To see the list of items covered, you can refer to the company website.
  • Extension of Geographical Area 
    By paying an additional premium, there can be an extension in the geographical area and the cover would include: Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka. Refer to the company website to see the detailed list.
  • Engine and Gearbox Protection
    When you buy this add-on, you will be covered for the expenses on internal parts of the vehicle engine that get damaged because of ingression of water or because of leakage of lubricating oil.

United India Two-wheeler Insurance Plans

United India offers the following options in two-wheeler insurance. Select the option that suits you the most, depending on your insurance needs.

  1. Liability Only Insurance - 5 years
    Just like car insurance, liability insurance is mandated by law under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988  for two-wheelers as well. Liability insurance covers you against the expenses you may have to bear in case your two-wheeler causes injury or damage to another person or property. The damages that are suffered by your own two-wheeler will not be covered under this kind of insurance.
  2. Package Policy Two-Wheeler Insurance
    With a package insurance policy, you provide a dual cover for your two-wheeler. The policy will cover third-party liabilities along with the own damages to your bike caused because of:
    • Accidental collision
    • Theft
    • Man-made or natural disasters
  3. Standalone Own-Damage Bike Insurance 
    As the name suggests this is a standalone policy, however, it can be bought when you already have third-party insurance for your two-wheeler. It would cover the damages to your vehicle because of collision, theft, man-made or natural disasters.
  4. Bundled Cover for Two-Wheeler
    With a bundled two-wheeler policy, you cover your two-wheeler for a liability cover of 5 years and own damages for one or more years.
  5. Personal Accident Cover
    A compulsory personal accident cover is offered by the company for the owner/rider of the two-wheeler that covers accidental deaths and permanent disability. Keep in mind that only a valid driver license-holding rider would be eligible for this claim.
  6. Add-Ons
    You can include the add-ons to your policy:
    • Return to Invoice
    • Nil Depreciation
    • Medical Expenses
    • Personal Effects
    • Extension of Geographical Area
    • Engine and Gearbox Protection

    You can also intimate a claim via the Customer Mobile App. 
    There are 2 different procedures for filing a motor insurance claim:
    • Cashless Claims
      After the intimation and approval, you can take your car for repair. At a network garage, the company will do a survey of your vehicle of repair to assess the damages and cost. You would have to submit the claim form and other required documents. Once the claim is approved, it would be settled directly with the garage. You will have to pay for the uncovered expenses from your own pocket and then take the car. To find an authorised garage click https://uiic.co.in/en/garage-details.
    • Reimbursement Claims
      If you wish to get your repair work done at a non-network garage, you would have to opt for the reimbursement process. In this process also, you will have to intimate the insurer. After initial intimation, you need to set up an appointment for a surveyor to visit your place for the inspection of your vehicle. Once the surveyor inspects your vehicle and provides an approval amount for the repair work, you can send your vehicle for repair work at any garage. 
      There would have to pay from your own pocket for the repair work and then send a claim form with all original receipts and bills from the garage along with your initial approval from the surveyor and your banking details. Then the money would be reimbursed to your bank account directly by the insurer after the claim is approved.
  2. Health Insurance
    There are 2 processes for filing a health insurance claim as well. At a network hospital, you have a choice of opting for a cashless claim or a reimbursement one. However, if you get your treatment done at a non-network hospital, you would have to opt for a reimbursement process for filing your claim.
    • Cashless Claim
      For a cashless claim, you would have to file a pre-authorisation form with the TPA desk of the network hospital. For planned hospitalisation, you need to get an approval at least 3-4 days before the due date of the hospitalisation. However, for emergency hospitalisation, you need to submit your pre-authorisation form within 24 hours of hospitalisation for initial approval. 
      Once you receive initial approval, you need to submit the insured person’s KYC documents at the time of admission along with the health card of the insurer.

    • Reimbursement Claim
      In case of a reimbursement claim, the payment of the treatment is to be made up-front. Thereafter, the procedure for the reimbursement is to be followed. You would have to submit all the treatment-related documents along with the Claim Form to the TPA desk of United India for the treatment that you have received.
