Care Advantage

A ridiculously high cover for an almost unbelievable price. This policy sounds too good to be true. Perhaps the only chink in its armour is that it will make you wait 4 years before they start covering complications arising out of pre-existing illnesses (Like diabetes). Otherwise it's just faultless.

What's good here?

co_pay

You most likely don't have to split the bill

If you bought this policy after you turned 61, you have to pay 20% of the bill every time you make a claim. Otherwise, you are good to go. The insurer will pay all costs up to the sum insured.

room_rent

You can pick any room you like

Shared room, single room, deluxe room or any room that’s available. The insurer won’t nitpick on your choice of room since the policy has no restrictions on room rent.

pre_post

Pre & Post hospitalization expenses covered

No worries if the doctor had to run a host of diagnostic tests before or after hospitalizing you. The insurer has your back. They will cover this amount in full for a pretty reasonable duration - 60 days before you are hospitalized and 180 days after discharge. This includes the cost of medication by the way.

day_care

Day Care treatments covered

If you’re hospitalized for less than 24 hours in lieu of a minor procedure, then the insurer will cover these costs too. Think dialysis, chemotherapy or minor surgeries.

disease_sublimit

You always have full cover irrespective of the disease

No funny business here. If your insurer hasn’t explicitly stated they won’t cover a certain illness, you can claim the full amount up to the sum insured, irrespective of the disease you’re dealing with. Meaning this policy doesn't impose the dreaded disease wise sub-limits.

restoration

Good Restoration Benefit

Even after you claim part of the cover on one occasion, you will have 100% of the cover restored, so that you can use this benefit in the event you have to endure multiple hospitalizations.

Long waiting period for pre-existing diseases

If you’re already dealing with diabetes, cardiovascular problems or any such illnesses, the insurer will cover all costs arising out of these pre-existing problems only after 4 long years. It could be much shorter you know? Like 2 years perhaps!

No coverage if you are forced to hospitalize at home

The insurer will not cover the costs if you are forced to hospitalize at home due to a medical condition. In insurance lingo, they call this a policy with no domiciliary cover.

Special Bonus for being healthy and not claiming insurance

Your sum insured increases by 10% each year, so long as you make no claims during this period. But before you get too ahead of yourself, do note that they’ll stop offering you the bonus when your sum insured increases by 50%. Also, the bonus amount will reduce at same rate each time you make a claim. But hey, it's still a bonus.

What's lacking here?

health_checkup

Your insurer doesn’t provide free health check-ups

If you want to get a full-body checkup just to make sure you’re in fine working condition, be ready to pay for it yourself or get an add-on to cover free health check-ups under the policy by paying a little extra in the premiums.
