Our View

This policy is useful if you have a family history of any of the listed life threatening diseases or if you wish to add on to the existing basic health cover. However, this policy should be bought only as an addition to the basic health cover and not as a substitute. Critical illness policies cannot replace basic health insurance policies. In comparison to similar policies offered by other insurers, this policy provides a narrow cover. Before buying this policy it is advised to check for alternatives with wider coverage.
