    Why Choose Care Classic by CHIL?

    India is a diverse nation, where everything from people's lifestyles to living conditions is different across cities and states. Also, there's a significant difference between a metro city's health infrastructure and facilities compared to a smaller town. For instance, the same basic medical treatment costs less in Patna but becomes unbearably high in the Delhi NCR region.

    At Care Health Insurance, we understand that families living in different Indian cities have access to different healthcare facilities. That is why we introduce Care Classic—the most comprehensive zone-based health insurance for families residing across various cities of India. Since hospitalization expenses in smaller towns are lower than in the metros, that is why with our city-based health insurance policy, we ensure that our customers avail the right health insurance coverage at an affordable premium irrespective of their city zones.

    Our zone-based health cover helps families stay protected with budget-friendly medical insurance no matter where they live or where they avail of healthcare treatment. So, choose Care Classic's zone-based pricing provision to save more on your health insurance policy while expanding your coverage across India.

    What is Care Classic Health Insurance?

    Care Classic is the latest addition to the wide range of health insurance covers offered by CHIL. Under Care Classic, families residing in different Indian cities can avail suitable medical insurance by paying an affordable, zone-based premium without compromising healthcare services.

    Your age, gender, and pre-existing diseases are some of the factors that determine your health insurance premium. But, do you know that the city you reside in also plays a vital role while calculating a premium? While healthcare expenses are lower in smaller towns, high-end infrastructure and modern facilities cause the treatment costs to shoot through the roof in metro cities. Greater the medical facilities in your town, higher the cost of treatment. That's why health insurance premium in metro cities is higher in comparison with outlying districts.

    Therefore, CHIL is offering Care Classic to provide comprehensive coverage to Indian citizens irrespective of their cities. It is unique zone-based health insurance where policyholders pay the premium according to their city zones, without bearing the high treatment cost of urban areas. This way, insured members from smaller towns can save up to 30% on premium amounts compared to metropolitan centers.

    Moreover, under Care Classic's zone-based health cover, insured family members can freely access medical treatment anywhere in India, irrespective of the city zone where the policy is purchased.

    For this plan, we have divided cities into three given zones:

    Zones Zone Description
    Zone 1 Mumbai, Thane, Delhi, including Faridabad, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad and Noida, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Surat.
    Zone 2 Bangalore, Pune, Nasik, Rest of Gujarat.
    Zone 3 Rest of India

    You can identify your city zone based on the PIN Code of your city.

    Additionally, the optional benefits, such as OPD care and annual health check-up, are helpful add-ons to expand your healthcare coverage.

    Also, we offer a multi-year policy discount on the premium to reduce your financial burden. As medical inflation is inching higher every year, Care Classic is the perfect investment that provides financial protection to you and your family during a medical emergency anywhere, anytime. Moreover, you get a wide range of sum insured options with the flexibility to add new members to the policy (at the time of renewal) and customize it per your healthcare needs and available medical facilities in your city. Therefore, this health insurance plan is a crucial help for the citizens from every walk of life staying in different cities of India.
