  • Brought it for myself and my wife.. Nice policy

    Many companies are providing senior citizen health insurance plans but after reading their reviews, I thought of giving new India assurance a try. My decision was not wrong I must say. There was a little delay in getting my policy documents but the coverage features etc and services of insurancedekho were good overall.

  • Good plan as compared to others

    This plan covers people this 80 years of age...while many provide cover only till 60 or 65 years of this is a good plan when it comes to maximum age limit. The only thing is that it does not offer cover for domiciliary hospitalisation which might be required by the insured sometimes.

New India has designed this policy keeping in mind the increased health risks during declining age. The Senior Citizen Mediclaim provides coverage against hospitalisation due to surgery, treatment, or accidental injury. It covers people from 60 years up to 80 years old. However, if the policy is renewed without any break, one can be covered up to 90 years of age.

  • Major Attractions

    Aside from several basic covers, the Senior Citizen Mediclaim Policy has some more benefits in store to offer, such as complimentary health checkup, no claim bonus. In addition, pre-existing diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus and its complications can be covered after 18 months of continuous insurance. But, it’s worth mentioning that the pre-existing benefits are available on additional premiums. Some more benefits under the plan are:

    • A discount of 10% for voluntary excess of Rs. 10,000
    • A family discount of 10% if the spouse is also covered
    • Reimbursement of cost of health checkup once in a block of 4 claim-free years

  • What’s More?

    Not only does the Senior Citizen Mediclaim offer these benefits, but as a policyholder you can also claim for the hospitalisation expenses. The nursing expenses are covered up to a maximum of 1% of SI per day, ICU charges covered up to 2% of SI per day, etc. It’s important to note that the overall limit should not exceed more than 25% of the sum insured.

    • Dedicated third party claim settlement
    • Tax benefits under Section 80D of the Income Tax
    • The premium is calculated based on age and the sum insured chosen

Features like NCB, a complimentary health check-up and an option of Hypertension and Diabetes cover from day one makes the policy unique. On the other side, limits on the room rent and sub-limits on some of the procedures with a co-payment clause can leave you with a bit of disappointing experience. Overall, it’s a good policy to have to secure you during your golden age with low premium amount.
