About Star Cancer Care Gold Health Insurance

Cancer Care Gold (pilot product) from Star Health is the first ever product of medical insurance for people diagnosed with cancer. The policy is designed to cover the risk for recurrence or spreading of cancer (metastasis) or second cancer (second malignancy) that is not related to the first cancer. It was launched on a test basis for a duration of 5 years and gained vast popularity. Under this plan, the cover is offered for self, spouse, dependent children and dependent parents.

The policy offers its policyholders many benefits. It provides a lump sum amount on the basis of sum assured in case of recurrence, second cancer unrelated to first cancer or metastasis. The policyholders also get the benefit of indemnity cover for surgical and interventional therapy as well as non-surgical and non-interventional therapy depending on the sum insured opted for.

Star Cancer Care Gold Expert Review

  • Expert Review

    To be able to choose the right Cancer health insurance plan in India is as important as getting one. Cancer treatment is expensive and has the potential to dig a big hole in your pocket if you miss out on the right health insurance plan for the same. For which, Star Health brings to you a plan especially designed for cancer i.e. Cancer Care Gold. Cancer Care Gold is a pilot plan, which is launched on a test basis for a period of 5 years. But don’t worry! Because after the closure date, if the product is found viable, it will be continued as a regular product. And even if not, you will be offered a suitable alternative product by the insurer. Available for a tenure of one year, the plan will be renewable thereon.

    The policy covers a major section of the society by keeping the minimum entry age as low as 5 months and maximum entry age as 65 years. Anyone who has already been diagnosed with Stage 1 or Stage 2 can purchase the plan. You are advised to choose appropriately from the sum insured options of Rs. 3 Lakh and Rs. 5 Lakh as no further changes are entertained. The sum insured options are divided into 3 sections, one of which is covered as a lump sum (when there is recurrence/metastasis and/or second cancer) and the other two are covered as indemnity, based on types of treatments (surgical/interventional and non-surgical/non-interventional therapy). The plan allows you to cover self, spouse, dependent children, and dependent parents too.
