Hi
The sole aim of buying health insurance should be risk cover as medical emergency can strike anyone, anytime. Nevertheless one can enjoy impressive income tax benefits under Sec 80D of the IT Act. The maximum amount available for deduction are as follows,
1. Up to Rs 15000 for premium paid towards medical coverage for you and your family.
2. Up to Rs 15000 for premium paid towards medical coverage for your parents; Rs 20000 in case the parents belong to senior citizen category

Thus if one buy medical policy in India (http://www.maxbupa.com/buy-online), he/she can save upto Rs 35000 as tax benefits under health insurance premiums paid.
