Why is It Necessary to Avail Insurance Cover for Vector Borne Diseases?

If you live in a city prone to vector-borne diseases, avail a dengue care plan to insure your family against vector-borne diseases. These plans are available as both individual plans and family floater plans.

The vector-specific plan offers coverage for diseases like dengue, malaria, kala-Azar, chikungunya, Zika virus, Japanese Encephalitis, and lymphatic Filariasis. The dengue care plan offers coverage only for vector-borne diseases, while the normal health insurance plan offers comprehensive coverage for all diseases which result in hospitalization.

A vector-specific health insurance plan covers inpatient and outpatient treatment, home care and diagnosis.

Health Insurance Covers for Dengue and Related Diseases:

  • The premium does not depend on the age of the policyholder and remains constant.
  • No pre-health check-up is required to buy a dengue insurance policy. Just a self-declaration is sufficient to avail the health cover.
  • Many insurance companies pay full sum assured to the policyholder on being diagnosed with vector-borne diseases, be it just a fever or a serious medical condition.
  • A few insurers also cover outpatient treatment and home care facilities separately, by charging an additional premium.
  • Insurers generally cover the medical cost, 30 days before or after hospitalization (pre and post hospitalization costs). Some of the insurance companies offer health insurance for dengue and also cover outpatient treatment, outpatient doctor consultation, diagnostic tests and home nursing.
  • The policyholder doesn’t receive any maturity benefit under this policy.
