I think you don’t need a test if you are under 30 years old
  User's Response
Do you smoke? I think premium is higher if you smoke. And I’m not sure how they check if you smoke or not. Ask the insurance guy if you need a blood test.
  User's Response
Generally you don’t need to go for a blood test if you are under 30 years of age. Think you need to go for a blood test if you have any existing disease like high blood pressure etc already. Hope this helps’

There are tests involved (not just blood investigations). The number of tests vary between insurance policies. The tests to be done can be decided depending upon the insurance policy you opt for and ur age.
