Reliance HealthWise- Standard
An online health insurance policy that aims at covering hospitalisation medical expenses and other incidental expenses in case insured person gets hospitalized.
It can be bought as an individual or family floater covering your spouse and 2 children under the same policy.
What does it do?
This is a basic health insurance policy. Apart from expenses incurred while hospitalized, this policy also provides for treatment taken at home on advice of the doctor, day care treatment for illnesses or procedures which do not require an overnight stay in hospital due to technological progress and health check up. Ambulance expenses are covered too.
There is no capping on room rent or ICU rent.
There are no sub-limits on different illnesses.
This policy can be bought online as well.
Premiums paid towards this policy enjoy a tax benefit under Section 80D.
It does not offer lifetime policy renewal.
A positive factor is that it has no sub-limits and no capping on expenses. Only drawback is that it doesn't allow lifelong policy renewal. Old age is the time when the chances of falling ill increase. Buying a new policy at higher age is tough and expensive as well. Preference should be given to the policies that offer lifelong renewal facility.
