Health Insurance – Critical Illness
Why you need it ...?
Today we live in a fast paced and progressive world that sometimes takes away more that it gives. Changing lifestyles are making Indians increasingly fall prey to the non-communicable critical illnesses such as cancer, heart stroke, hypertension, diabetes etc. These critical illnesses are always associated with an increased cost of treatment along with a long and expensive recovery process. A basic health insurance policy may not be sufficient to cover all medical costs, especially in case of critical illness or accident which require a long term treatment.
