National Mediclaim Plus policy

While the National Mediclaim Plus policy does impose some restrictions on the kind of room you can pick, it is pretty decent for the most part. Especially when you consider it even offers maternity benefits.

What's good here?

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.

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 - 30 days before you are hospitalized and 60 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.

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

Reasonable waiting period for pre-existing diseases

domiciallary

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.

What's okay here?

co_pay

You may pay a portion of the bill

On most occasions the insurer will pay your medical bills in full up to the sum insured — no questions asked. However, if you were forced to be treated in a hospital that’s not a part of their network, then they’ll make you co-pay 20% of the final bill.

Underwhelming bonus feature

Your sum insured increases by 5% 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%. And while this is a decent deal, most insurance companies offer a much higher bonus. But hey, it's still a bonus.

Covers Alternative Medicine

Think of getting Ayurvedic, Homeopathic or other alternative treatments to cure an illness? Your insurer will cover you fully, up to the sum insured.

health_checkup

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.

maternity

Maternity benefits offered

The insurer will also cover expenses related to maternity— Think hospitalization expenses incurred while giving birth. But they’ll only pay upto ₹50,000 and make you wait 2 years before covering this expense.

What's lacking here?

restoration

No Restoration Benefit

Some policies will tell you - Even after you claim part of the cover on one occasion, you will have the full cover restored, if you are hospitalized another time during the same year. So if you have a family cover and multiple members of the family are hospitalized in the same year, this feature will come in handy. Unfortunately, this policy offers no such benefit.
