Super Top Up Health Insurance Plans

Health Insurance Guidelines

A Super Top Up health insurance plan is the best way to meet the expenses of rising healthcare costs in case the sum insured under your regular health insurance policy is not enough. In this post, let us understand a super top-up plan better.

What is a Super Top-Up Plan?

A super top-up plan acts like an extension to your health insurance policy which provides coverage over and above the threshold limit of your policy in multiple cases. So, you can raise maximum claims during a policy year even after you have consumed your sum insured to the maximum limit. The best thing about a super top-up plan is that it covers cumulative expense claims, which is not covered under a regular top-up plan. Hence, the claims for cumulative medical expenses are covered within a policy year once the insured has exceeded the deductible limit. While under regular top-up plans, it only covers a single claim that goes above the deductible.

Advantages of Super Top-up Plans

  • The super top-up health insurance plan requires the insured to pay your deductible only once, while you can raise claims multiple times during a policy year
  • The insured can customize their super top-up plan as per their medical requirement. They can choose the deductibles and the Sum Insured as required
  • The super top-up plans also do not have any room rent restriction to suit different preferences of different policyholders
  • Further, the insured can avail treatment at any hospital they want from among the network hospitals of the insurer for cashless claims. They can even opt for a reimbursement claim if they want
  • Super top-up plans can be bought easily via online processes in a paperless and hassle-free way
