A low cost policy offering narrow coverage. Most of the benefits are capped to certain percentage of sum insured. It may act as a starter policy for young individuals only if budget restrains to buy a more inclusive policy. Once policyholder feels the need of an enhanced cover, the option to shift to another more comprehensive policy may be exercised. Do not get swayed by low policy premiums as the policy offers lesser features as compared to other health policies. Above all, a co-payment clause of 15 per cent on each claim acts as an impingement.
