Without having a health insurance policy, you cannot imagine managing your medical expenses. Considering the increased medical costs, health insurance is the only solution that can secure your savings. But, in such a scenario when medical expenses are skyrocketing and nothing is in your control, you can get extra support from your regular health insurance cover by opting for add-on covers.  The add-on cover can  enhance your health insurance coverage. 

A health insurance policy includes hospitalization expenses; many health insurance plans come with add-on covers that offer financial aid for certain illnesses.

This add on cover includes consultation fees, costs of medicines, and pathological tests. In this case, the insured is not admitted as a day-care patient.

4. Air Ambulance cover: In this add on cover, the insured gets up to a certain amount specified for availing this service in India from the place of incident to the hospital. The transportation fare will be covered from one hospital to another. The doctor needs to mention the severity of the ailment.

In policy tenure, if there is an option chosen by you and no claim has been paid, the insured can avail no-claim bonus super (NCB Super).
