The former covers overseas travel while the latter only covers domestic travel. The Personal Accident Plan covers only accident related finances. Similarly a pure health insurance plan would protect an individual only from health emergencies. Therefore while choosing the right plan the need for the plan should be compared.

Again one can also compare the variants offered by certain policies. For example, the Easy Health Plan comes in 3 variants:
  • Standard
  • Premium
  • Exclusive
