The same policy also provides cover for (other) regular hospitalization expenses. 2. Does it cover the declared medical condition of Diabetes and it complications? Ans: Yes. The policy covers all complications of diabetes, ignoring that it is a PED, from day one.

So, what is different about Diabetes Safe policy? Ans: Diabetes is not considered as a PED as done in the usual health policies. You need not wait for 48 months for getting coverage of complications of Diabetes. 4. Is a medical screening mandatory for getting Diabetes Safe policy? Ans: A medical examination is required if you wish to have coverage from Day One for diabetic complications. But a diabetic person can also take the cover even without a medical examination. 5.

Ans: No, we have a Family floater option, which means both of you can take a single policy for joint coverage under a single sum insured. 4. My child has juvenile diabetes.

Can I take the cover without a medical, join Plan B and next year shift to Plan A after a medical check? No change of plan is allowed. Please choose carefully. Coverage: 7. Along with Diabetes, I have the PED of Asthma and wheezing also. I intend to declare them. Will I get cover from ‘day one’ of the policy for the same and any complications? Ans: The policy covers both diabetic complications and other types of ailments in two different sections. Diabetic complications are covered in Section 1 which has no waiting period, if the cover is taken after a medical screening. Without a medical screening you have to wait 15 months for the coverage. All other diseases (Other than complications of Diabetes) are covered in Section 2, as per the usual health insurance terms. So, any PEDs other than diabetes shall be covered under Section2. Here, the PED waiting period is 48 months of continuous coverage. 8. Is a Cataract claim admitted on Day1 of the coverage? Ans: No, cataract is coming under Section 2. It is covered with a waiting period of 24 months, if it is not a PED. 9. Are day-care procedures covered? Ans: Yes, day care procedures are covered.

Ans: Four options are available: Rs3/4/5/10 Lakhs, depending on your choice. 14. What are the room rent limits in the policy? Ans: For diabetic complications (section 1), the room rent limit is that the cost equivalent to a single standard AC, and it is 1.5% of sum insured (subject to a max of Rs8,500) in respect of hospitalizations for treating of diseases other than diabetic complications (Section 2). 15.

  4. 4. Star Health and Allied Insurance Company Limited CORPORATE OFFICE: No.1, New Tank Street, Valluvar Kottam High Road, Nungambakkam, Chennai - 600034. Ph: 044-28288800 Help Line. 99946 12916, 93628 54443 E-mail.: dhanasekaran.p@starhealth.in Ans: No, there are no sub-limits for claims under Plan A which is policy taken after a medical screening. For Plan B, which is taken without a medical screening, there are sub-limits for claims pertaining to Cardiovascular system. The benefits are limited to 2Lakh for 3 lakh SI to 4Lakhs for 10 Lakh SI. Premium: 17. Isn’t the premium higher than the regular medical policies? Ans: Naturally. The persons taken for cover are high-risk individuals. You have to expect some increase in premium. But the benefits offered should also be kept in view. 18. I am 38 years old. If I opt for 4 Lakhs Plan A with Medical Screening, what will be my premium? Ans: Rs 12, 210 will be the annual premium for the risk. The per month policy cost would be Rs.1018/-, perhaps equal to your medicine costs every month to control diabetes. Take it as an additional medicine cost to control your hospitalization expenses, and you will find that the cost is only nominal. 19. Is the cost for Plan A and Plan B same or different? Ans: Plan A is given after a medical screening. We know what the health status of the insured is. How good or bad is the medical control on diabetes, which is not available for Plan B entrants. The actual control or extent can be varying from what is actually stated in the proposal form. So, to take care of the margin of error, the premium is slightly higher. For a person aged 38, opting for Rs4lakhs, the premium is Rs16490, or in monthly terms, Rs1374/-. This is not too high when compared to Plan A premium. 20. I was informed that there is a Family floater option. What is the premium cost of this option? Ans: In a comparable situation (Rs4 lakhs SI for a 38 year old applicant) for Plan A the premium is Rs17,750 (Per month costs for two come to Rs.1,480) and for Plan B, it is Rs 23,550 (Rs1,963 is the monthly premium cost for two).
