Apollo Munich Optima Senior
This is a special health insurance policy designed to provide lifelong coverage to senior citizens.
Anyone who fulfills the eligibility criteria can buy this policy.
What does it do?
Anyone proposing to buy this policy will be required to go through a medical check up. In certain cases mentioned, co-payment clause applies which means that total claim amount will be shared among policyholder and insurance company in a pre-specified ratio. Apart from hospitalization benefit, it also covers pre and post hospitalization expenses, domiciliary treatment, day care procedures, and hospitalization expenses of organ donor in case of transplant.
It offers lifelong renewal.
It offers a 5 per cent discount on premium on including spouse.
It allows 7.5 per cent discount for opting a 2-year policy.
The policy assures of no claim based premium loading.
There are no sub-limits on inpatient hospitalisation cover.
Premium paid under this policy enjoys a tax benefit under Section 80D.
Co-payment in certain cases acts as a limitation.
There is no escape from co-payment clause when looking a policy for a senior citizen. USP of the policy is that it assures of no claim based loading and it covers inpatient hospitalisation expenses without any sub-limits. This policy is a perfect balance between the benefits and cost. If you can afford the premiums, this is a recommended plan. But if you are looking for a cheaper policy, you would be required to compromise on the scope of cover as well.
