Mr Aditya Kothari had a health insurance plan with sum assured of Rs 3 Lakh a year. He was stress-free and believed it was sufficient for medical emergencies; until he suffered a major kidney problem and the medical bills came to Rs 6 Lakhs.
His wife had to break their FDs and pay off the medical bills. If Mr Kothari had a top-up health insurance plan; he would not have faced any financial difficulty while paying the medical bills.
A top-up health insurance plan is a kind of additional cover offered by insurers to help pay medical bills; after you have exhausted your maximum insurance limit.
Unlike the basic health insurance policies, the top-up health plans come with a deductible or a threshold limit. The policyholder must choose the threshold limit at the time of policy inception. This will help determine the amount up to which you can pay your medical bills. It helps cover the hospitalization expenses up to certain limit and save you from getting financially derailed.
