Optima Secure

Optima Secure is a great policy. There are no restrictions on the kind of room you can pick, you get a healthy loyalty benefit (50% increase in sum insured on every renewal until 100% of sum insured), and the heavily talked about Secure benefit. All things put together, you can get 3X the cover you originally paid for, once the loyalty benefit is fully accumulated. In many ways, this is a worthy successor to Optima Restore.

What's good here?

Secure Benefit

You get 2x the cover you pay for: When you buy a policy with a cover of 10 lakhs for instance, you are automatically entitled to a cover of 20 Lakhs starting from day 1.

coPay

You’ll never have to split the bill

The insurer will bear the entire cost of treatment (up to the sum insured). You won’t have to pay a single penny. Meaning this policy has no co-payment.

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.

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.

healthCheckup

Free Health Checkups

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. (Note: This is not available for plan with 5L aggregate deductible.)

What's okay here?

Reasonable 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 after you wait for 3 years.

Add-ons

Hospital Daily Cash

The insurer pays a lumpsum by adding a fixed sum (daily cash) every day until the day of discharge so you can deal with any potential loss in income during this time. The money will be reimbursed to you after you submit the required documents post-discharge, and while this looks like a neat benefit to have, we don’t recommend it since the benefit doesn’t compensate for the extra premium you pay.

Unlimited Restore

Unlimited Restore will restore your cover in full every time a claim is settled.

Individual Personal Accident

The add-on pays a portion of the cover amount to customers in the event the policy holder had to deal with deaths, injuries, and partial or total disability resulting from an accident.

Critical Illness

You’ll be entitled to receive the full cover once you’re diagnosed with any of the 50 critical diseases listed in the policy brochure. However, since the premiums here keep changing as you grow older, it may make more financial sense to buy a critical illness cover with term plans at better rates.

Aggregate Deductible

If you ever have to make a claim, then you’ll be expected to pay a sum before insurance company settles the claim. This amount is called the deductible. So if you want to buy a policy at a better price, you can opt to pay a higher deductible i.e. you can pay lower premiums by offering to pay a sum (a deductible) when a claim comes up.
