Rajasthan plans universal health insurance; 45 million to benefit

Standalone health insurer has introduced a new variant, Gold Plan, under the Super Surplus Policy and Star Super Surplus Floater A provides the comfort of wider protection at affordable cost.

Under the new Gold plan, the claim becomes payable when hospitalisation expenses exceed the 'defined limit' as opted by the customer. This defined limit can be from one single hospitalisation or multiple hospitalisations, at different points of time, during the policy period. In addition to this, the Gold Plan comes with other benefits like air-ambulance (up to 10 per cent of the sum insured), medical second opinion and 405 day-care procedures.

The plan has coverage limits up to Rs 25 lakh and there is no capping on the room rent. The plan can be taken by persons up to 65 years of age with lifelong renewal benefit.

Importantly, the plan does not require any pre-insurance medical check ups for any age.

The plan has been tailored to meet a wide array of medical insurance needs. We have designed this product based on customer feedback received by our claims and marketing teams.
