Care Senior is a good choice if you’re 60+, with pre-existing complications or if nobody is willing to insure you. However, if you have other alternatives, this policy could be a letdown, considering they'll make you wait 4 years before they start covering pre-existing complications. Also you won't have the full cover for certain diseases.

What's good here?

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 - 30 days before you are hospitalized and 60 days after discharge. This includes the cost of medication by the way.

Some Restoration Benefit

Even after you claim part of the cover on one occasion, you will have 100% of the cover restored, if you are hospitalized one more time in a bid to treat a different complication. In the same year, by the way.

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.

Free Health Checkups every year

If you’re planning on getting a full body checkup every year just to make sure you’re in fine working condition, the insurer will cover the costs.

What's bad here?

You will have to pay a portion of the bill

The policy will only cover 80% of the final bill. The rest is on you. They call this a co-payment.

Restrictions on the rooms you can pick and much more

Your insurer won’t let you stay in a room whose rent exceeds 1% of the sum insured. If it’s an ICU they’ll bump it to 2% of the sum insured. And in the event you breach these limits, then you’ll have to pay a lot more - Read more here

Has disease wise sub-limits

Your insurance cover won’t be fully available in case you are treated for Knee replacement, Heart diseases, Cerebrovascular disorders and a few other diseases. Meaning the insurance company has a cap on the total amount they’ll pay out if you are treated for these specific illnesses.

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!

What's okay?

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.

Some coverage if you are forced to hospitalize at home

The insurer will pay up to 10% of the sum insured if you are forced to hospitalize at home due to a medical condition or the hospital running out of beds. In insurance lingo, they call this a policy with domiciliary cover.

Some Cover for Alternative Medicine

Think of getting Ayurvedic, Homeopathic or other alternative treatments to cure an illness? Your insurer will pay up to ₹20,000 of the cover in case you’re availing these treatments.
