Super Top-up Health Insurance

If your health insurance sum insured is not enough to meet the rising medical expenses then a super top-up plan is a cost effective option to ensure that you are insured for any medical uncertainties in life.

A super top-up health plan covers the total hospital bills up to the limit specified in your super top-up plan above the deductible amount. Hence, once your deductible is paid, the super top-up policy becomes active for subsequent claims. It covers cumulative expenses unlike a regular top-up plan that covers single clams over and above the deductibles.

This deductible amount is pre-decided, for example, if you have a Super top-up plan of Rs 10 lakh and it has deductible limit of Rs 3 lakh then the super top-up policy will cover medical expenses over and above Rs 3 lakh. This deductible amount can be paid from your current health plan and the remaining can be paid by the super top-up insurer.

Here is an illustration table to help you understand better:

Super Top-up Plans
Deductible Rs 4 lakh
Sum Insured  Rs 12 lakh
Claim Amount Rs 8 Lakh
You Pay Rs 4 lakh
