By V.Subbiah on Mar 20, 2015 12:43 PM

Myself and my wife want to join VARISTHA mediclaim policy. My wife is 67 years old and I am 68 years old. We were under Royal Sundaram Medi claim policy for consecutive four years; initially for 2 years and renewed for another 2 years. Should we undergo medical check up for entering into VARISTHA? If we have to undergo medical check up, what are the tests we should take and in which hospital. We are living in Palavakkam, Chennai-600 041. Can we avail both Section I and Section II benefits? Perhaps Critical illness coverage will cover both Sections-is it right? Suppose if one undergoes by-pass surgery, how much he is likely to get? The insured amount is only 2 lakhs. Please clarify the above.

By Team Medimanage on Sep 3, 2014 10:00 AM

Dear Mr.Roy, Hope you are doing well !!! Thank you for writing to us. If you are opting for critical illness benefit under a policy then it will pay a lump sum amount to you which will be helpful to overcome financial crisis in event of hospitalization. Health Insurance policy will only cover your actual medical expenses done during hospitalization. But it will not provide any lump sum amount which will support you financially. For getting more information on critical illness and health Insurance kindly share your contact details with us. Looking forward to serve you.
