Medi Classic

Medi Classic does a pretty decent job for the most part. And it's not too expensive. However, the policy does have restrictions on the kind of room you can pick and it makes you wait 4 years before covering pre-existing diseases (like diabetes). So you could look at other options within the Star stable. Maybe YoungStar?

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 10% 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.

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.

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.

restoration

Good Restoration Benefit

After you claim your full cover, the insurer will restore it and double your cover for the same year. However, you can only claim it if you are treated for a different complication.

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!

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?

pre_post

Pre & Post hospitalization expenses covered up to a certain limit

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 upto ₹5,000 for about 30 days before you are hospitalized and 60 days after discharge. This includes the cost of medication by the way.

What's lacking here?

ncb

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 25%. And while this is a decent deal, most insurance companies offer a much higher bonus. But hey, it's still a bonus.

health_checkup

No free Health Checkups unless you wait 4 years

If you’re planning on getting a full body checkup just to make sure you’re in fine working condition, the insurer will cover the cost once in 4 years. However, just so you know, most insurance policies offer free yearly health checkups.
