myHealth Suraksha Silver

my Health Suraksha Silver might only offer you a cover totalling 5 lakhs. But make no mistake, it offers pretty extensive coverage. It has decent benefits. It doesn't include any absurd conditions. And the only other policies within the HDFC Ergo stable, that offer a higher cover include Health Suraksha Gold and Platinum.

What's good here?

coPay

You most likely don't have to split the bill

The insurer will bear the entire cost of treatment (up to the sum insured) unless you explicitly opted to pay a portion of the bill. And if you’ve opted to co-pay a part of the bill, have you thought through it completely?

roomRent

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.

prePost

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.

dayCare

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.

domiciliary

Full coverage even if you are forced to hospitalize at home

The insurer will bear the costs even if you are hospitalized at home due to a condition or the hospital running out of beds. In insurance lingo, they call this a policy with domiciliary cover.

diseaseSublimit

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.

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 100%. Also, the bonus amount will reduce at same rate each time you make a claim. But hey, it's still a bonus.
