FAQs

 

Can I increase/decrease the sum insured or change the plan in my policy?

Alterations like increase or decrease in Sum Insured, change in plan will be allowed at the time of Renewal of Policy. However, any such change request will be subject to underwriting decision or requirement of medical tests on a case to case basis.

 

What do you mean by in-patient and out-patient treatment?

When an insured is hospitalized and stays in hospital for more than 24 hours solely for receiving treatment it is termed as in-patient treatment. Out-patient treatment is when insured visits a clinic/hospital or a consultation room for diagnosis and treatment based on the advice of medical practitioner. In out-patient hospitalization patient is not admitted under a day care or as an in-patient.

 

If I have a health insurance policy in one city, can I make a claim in another city?

Your health insurance policy is in force across India. You can check whether there is any network hospital near to your residence as well the city of your current location. Network hospitals are the hospitals that have tie-up with the Third Party Administrator for cashless settlement of claims.
