Star Diabetes Safe Insurance Policy
This policy is exclusively designed for those suffering from diabetes Mellitus Type II. It aims at covering diabetic patients for hospitalisation bills caused due to some other illness or condition.
Any person between 26 and 65 years, diagnosed with diabetes mellitus type II is eligible to buy this policy.
What does it do?
A diabetic policyholder gets a cover for medical expenses for treatments taken as an inpatient. Though, this policy does not cover treatment of diabetes mellitus type II, it covers certain conditions like laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy, treatment for chronic renal failure due to diabetes and treatment of diabetic foot ulcer.
Premium paid under this policy qualifies for deduction under section 80D of Income Tax Act.
This policy does not cover people who have already developed diabetic complications like retinopathy, nephropathy and foot ulcer.
This is a unique policy serving the needs of diabetic patients. While most other basic health policies may deny cover to diabetics, this policy provides financial respite in case of medical problems caused by ailments other than diabetes. This policy is recommended.
