Future Generali offers a range of health insurance plans to its customers. Some of its most popular plans available at PayBima include the following –
This is a comprehensive health insurance policy that Future Generali offers. The policy provides all the vital coverage benefits in a medical emergency, hence the name. The salient features of the plan are as follows –
Multiple claims in the same policy year can exhaust the sum insured. That is why this Future Generali health insurance policy allows the benefit of sum insured restoration. Under this benefit, if the sum insured is used up on a previous claim, it is reinstated for a subsequent claim occurring in the same policy year.
The plan has an inbuilt coverage for childbirth and pregnancy. You get covered for both normal and C-Section deliveries up to specified limits.
If you don’t make a claim in a policy year, the sum insured increases by 50% by way of a no claim bonus. The maximum increase allowed under the policy is up to 100% of the sum insured. You can, thus, enjoy double the coverage within two claim-free policy years.
If an insured member aged 60 years and above is hospitalised, a patient care benefit is paid. Under this benefit, a daily allowance is paid per day of hospitalisation. This daily benefit can cover the non-admissible medical costs and prove handy.
In the case of hospitalisation following an accident, the sum insured is automatically enhanced by 25% so that you can meet the additional medical costs easily.
If a minor insured member, aged up to 12 years, is hospitalised, a daily cash allowance would be paid to cover the cost of an accompanying person.
The Superior Plan is another variant of the Health Total policy, like the Vital Plan. This variant provides a wider scope of coverage. In addition to the aforementioned features available under the Vital variant, the Superior plan also allows the following coverage benefits –
Besides allowing coverage for maternity and child birth, the Superior plan allows coverage for the newborn baby too. Pre and post-natal hospitalisation expenses of the newborn baby are covered for 90 and 45 days respectively. Moreover, the costs of vaccinations for the first year are also covered up to specified limits.
If you get hospitalised in a networked hospital, the actual cost of hiring an ambulance would be covered by the policy without any sub-limits.
The plan allows coverage for emergency medical evacuation on a reimbursement basis.
Outpatient medical expenses, i.e. those expenses that are incurred without being hospitalised, are also covered. Coverage for outpatient medical expenses incurred for mental treatments is also provided under the policy up to specified limits.
