It is another testimony to our wide product portfolio and reinforces our belief in giving greater value to our customers while also meeting their changing healthcare requirements. The product will cater to the evolving healthcare needs of customers who want a high-quality health insurance solution and don’t want to compromise when it comes to health and wellbeing. Health Premia is a result of thorough analysis of the evolving customer needs, market intelligence and our laser sharp focus on customer centricity and innovation. With rising personal incomes and changing lifestyle, Indians are spending over 60% more overseas on a year on year basis. A substantial portion of this spending is on medical expenses for those suffering from critical illnesses. Keeping this in mind, Health Premia has been designed to provide coverage for emergencies as well as critical illnesses abroad. The plan has indeed been designed as a comprehensive health insurance plan for covering healthcare expenses that a regular health insurance plan may not be able to cover.”

Health Premia also has an enhanced pre and post hospitalization coverage along with the refill benefit on partial exhaustion of the sum insured, which can be used for the same illness as well. The customers of Health Premia will also have access to top-of-the-class exclusive services.
Health Premia offers features such as Premium Waiver which allows the premium for next year to be waived off, if the proposer of policy passes away or is diagnosed with a specified illness during the policy period. Health Premia also brings Loyalty Additions which gives 10% increase in the base sum insured annually even if the person has claimed in the previous year.
