Paralysis is a medical situation where one suffers a loss of functioning of muscles in the body. Usually, paralysis occurs due to damage to one’s nervous system. Anyone who is paralysed, experiences sensory loss, i.e. loss of sensation in the affected areas, and motor loss, i.e. loss of muscle function. Paralysis can be partial or complete and temporary or permanent. However, sometimes physiotherapy can do wonders and retain and regain the natural strength of the body.
Paralysis comes under critical illness and hence, your regular health insurance plan does not cover it. You have to choose a particular critical illness plan that covers all the medical expenses for paralysis related concerns. Moreover, you can choose for a critical illness policy as a rider to the comprehensive health insurance policy.
