L&T my: health Medisure Prime Insurance
A special health insurance policy that aims to provide a wide coverage for hospitalisation expenses, critical illness, maternity and other expenses. The policy also automatically restores the sum assured in case of accidental hospitalisation.
This policy can be bought for an individual or family to cover spouse and up to two dependent children.
What does it do?
The policy offers a bouquet of benefits including hospitalisation benefit, critical illness cover for 10 major illnesses, maternity expenses, automatic restoration of sum insured in case of accidental hospitalisation and other incidental expenses. Maternity expenses will be covered only after four years from inception of the policy. There is a special provision in case of hospitalisation due to accident that can restore the sum insured once the opted cover is exhausted.
For policy premiums, persons paying premium for Zone I, can avail treatment all over India without any sub-limits. Similarly, a person paying premium in Zone II can avail treatment in Zone II and III. If a policyholder paying premiums according to Zone II avails treatment in Zone I, he would have to co-pay 10 per cent of the concerned claim.
A person paying premium in Zone III will be required to bear 10 per cent and 20 per cent if treatment is availed in Zone II and Zone I respectively.
The policy has no sub-limits. It allows lifetime renewal.
It also offers a convalescence benefit to cover expenses during recovery period, after discharge. It also provides for pre and post natal expenses.
Premium paid under this policy will be eligible for tax exemption under Section 80D of Income Tax Act.
This policy offers a broad range of benefits. Automatic restoration of sum insured for hospitalisation due to an accident is a valuable feature but cannot be seen as a substitute of Personal Accident policy as the former does not provide accidental death and disability benefits. Similarly critical illness benefit covers 10 major illnesses whereas, a standalone critical illness covers more illnesses.
