Critical Illness Policies Which Cover Dialysis

Critical Illness Policies cover the policyholder from various contingencies like Cancer, Stroke, paralysis, coronary artery bypass, etc. Kidney failure is also among the illnesses covered under a critical illness policy, the treatment of which costs around Rs 20,000 per month in a private set-up. There are very few government hospitals which offer this service.
