Ditto
United Insurance Individual Gold is an okay policy. And while it does cover some bases, it has a few restrictions. For one they don't offer the full cover for several diseases and they make you wait 4 years before covering complications arising out of pre-existing illnesses. So you might want to check out other alternatives.

What's good here?

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.
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.
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.

What's bad here?

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 Heart diseases, Major surgeries 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?

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 10% of sum insured for about 30 days before you are hospitalized and 60 days after discharge. This includes the cost of medication by the way.
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.

What's lacking here?

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.
No Bonus for being healthy and not claiming insurance
Some policies offer you extra cover if you go an entire year without claiming your insurance. This policy, however, offers no such benefit.
No free Health Checkups unless you wait 3 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 3 years. However, just so you know, most insurance policies offer free yearly health checkups.
