Benefits of Buying IFFCO Tokio Individual Health Protector Policy
Having gained years of experience in this field, we are perfectly aware that reimbursement for just hospitalization expenses is not sufficient. Many more variables are involved which if not taken into consideration, can mess up your entire estimate. In order to help you meet all your medical expenses, we have made it a point to include them in the coverage of our Mediclaim policy.
Similarly, recuperating from a medical procedure after discharge from the hospital also often involves expenditure including visits to the doctor, occupational therapy and medications. To save you from all these, we cover the Nursing and Medical expenses during the post-hospitalization period up to 60 days, provided these expenses are related to the ailment for which treatment was received in the hospital.
Not only our Mediclaim policy takes care of your hospitalization expenses, to ease your burden, but you are also entitled to an additional daily allowance of 0.20% of the sum insured value per day during the period of hospitalization. In case of day care procedures where the hospitalization period is less than 24 (Twenty Four) hours, the allowance is adjusted proportionately for the duration of stay in the hospital.
Pre and Post Hospitalization Expenses: - You are only admitted to a hospital under the guidance of your consultant physician or expert as they feel that the ailment is not possible to be cured by prescription medicines and needs domiciliary hospitalisation. But in order to reach this decision, your consultant medical practitioner needs to investigate the cause of the medical condition using various diagnostic and investigative procedures, which can cost a lot. All pre-hospitalization expenses incurred during a period of 45 days before hospitalization will be covered if you have bought this Mediclaim policy.
Ambulance Charges: - Certain ailments are so grave that they require the patient to opt for ambulance services, to be delivered to the hospital. When you are already burdened by medical bills, even the cost of ambulance services could seem too much. Therefore our Mediclaim policy reimburses ambulance charges up to a maximum of 1% of the sum insured or Rest. 2,500/- (Two Thousand Five Hundred Only) for each episode of hospitalization.
Day Care Surgeries: - We understand that for treatment of certain conditions or minor surgical procedures, there is no need for hospitalization. Therefore, we have identified 121 medical procedures as day care procedures, following the treatment for which you can be discharged immediately from the hospital and recuperate at home. All the expenses incurred due to any of these 121-day care procedures will be fully reimbursed insurance plan. This saves you all the hassles involved with admission and discharges even for some minor procedure.
Daily Allowance: - We understand that when you or any other insured family member undergoes treatment at a hospital, there are other monetary losses that occur as a result because there are various other expenditures involved in addition to the hospitalization and medical expenses. Additionally, there is also the possible loss of income, if the person undergoing treatment was working and had to take a leave of absence due to the hospitalization.
Cost of Health Check Up: - Our policy reimburses the cost incurred for medical check-up(s) after a block period of four claim free policies with us. You will be entitled to a maximum of 1% of the average sum insured during the block of four claim free periods.
Other than the 121 listed day care surgeries, if you or any other individual policyholder in your family has to stay in the hospital for more than 12 hours but less than 24 hours, you will be reimbursed all hospitalisation related expenses. But the room rent, in that case, will be a capped at a maximum of 50% of the room rent per day. But please make sure that you get the pre-authorization for the treatment and the line of treatment undertaken by your doctors has been agreed upon by our panel of specialists.
In this case, no pre-hospitalisation expenses shall be allowable and post hospitalisation expenses shall be limited to 15 days from discharge.
After a block period of two consecutive claim-free policies (365 days + 365 days or 366 days in case of a leap year), you or another cashless mediclaim policy holder in your family are entitled to a maximum of 10% of the premium paid (excluding taxes). It must be noted that this benefit is available only when you renew the policies on time without any break.
Vaccination: - We believe that prevention is better than cure. Although many critical illnesses have rapidly progressed, affecting millions of individuals, medical science has also made significant development simultaneously. Today we have various new vaccines that help control the spread of many such diseases. In order to make sure that you receive all necessary vaccines to safeguard your health against serious ailments, our best cashless Mediclaim policy for family members and individual, also covers the cost of vaccination, received from a registered medical practitioner.
Cumulative Bonus: - Do not think that if you have not made any claims against the premium paid for your Mediclaim, in a particular year then it would go waste. We reward our customers with cumulative (no-claim) bonus feature, which adds a particular amount to your insurance coverage, over and above the sum insured, with each claim free year.
This feature comes in very handy when you need to undergo a medical procedure or bear hospitalization expenses, as you get additional coverage over and above the basic sum insured in your Mediclaim. This will help you meet out various expenses without affecting your savings in any way. This feature works in the following way: -
For each claim free year, 5% of the basic sum insured at each renewal will be added as a bonus to your cumulative bonus. This 5% will continue being added each year up to a maximum of 50% of the basic sum insured of the expiring policy.
If you make a claim during the policy period, the cumulative bonus shall be reduced by 5% of the basic sum insured, at the next renewal, if the basic sum insured is maintained.
To be eligible for the cumulative bonus you must make sure that the policy is renewed on time or utmost within thirty days of the expiry date. Otherwise, your cumulative bonus may be forfeited.
