Coverage Benefits During the Policy Term

Hospital Cash Benefit

If an insured person is hospitalized (for a minimum of 24 hours) due to an accidental bodily injury or sickness, the policy will provide the applicable daily benefit regardless of actual treatment costs. In case of an ICU hospitalization, insured persons will get two times the daily benefit. The coverage period will be up to 30 days during the first policy year. From the second year onwards, you can get coverage up to 90 days in a year.

Major Surgical Benefit Restoration

If you have exhausted 100% of the major surgical benefit sum assured in a policy year, the policy will cover the next major surgical benefit. However, the next claim should be for a different procedure to get this benefit.
