3 New Health Policies
New Delhi, 26th May 2014: IFFCO-TOKIO General Insurance Co. Ltd. launched three Health Insurance Policies namely - Health Protector, Family Health Protector, and Health Protector Plus. Health Protector is Individual Sum Insured based Policy whereas Family Health Protector is a floater policy with a sum insured up to Rs. 20 Lakhs and Rs. 30 Lakhs respectively. Under both the policies, one may cover any number of relatives living together as a family and can also opt for additional matching Sum Insured for critical illnesses. Health Protector Plus is a Top Up policy. The policy operates on the concept of a deductible (usually opted in accordance with one's existing insurance coverage through an employer or personal arrangements, or based upon one's risk-bearing/sharing capacity), and offers indemnity beyond the opted deductible. The policy offers two variants – where the deductible operates on ‘per event’ basis or ‘per policy’ basis. This policy is available even to persons who have a history of Diabetes and/or Hypertension as also obesity (within stipulated parameters). And this is not all. At a small premium charge, the policy also offers an option for waiver of deductible for a maximum period of 90 days, in case of change/loss of job of the insured. The policy also offers to insured an option to take base cover after running the policy for four years in succession without claim. For these policies, IFFCO Tokio will provide a cashless claim facility at over 4000 hospitals across India.
