    Difference between a Group Health Insurance Policy and an Individual Health Insurance Policy


    The primary difference between a group health insurance policy and an individual health insurance policy is the volume, i.e., a group insurance policy is bought for a set of people who are part of a group and thus the coverage is shared amongst that particular group of people under a certain condition. But an individual policy only covers one particular individual or a family. When we do bulk buying, like in the case of a group insurance policy, we are able to negotiate higher benefits at lower prices.
