Digit Health Insurance Critical Illness Policy

Digit critical illness policy offers coverage for medical expenses incurred on diagnosis of a critical illness to you or your loved ones. It is usually an add-on benefit but with Digit health insurance, critical illness cover is also provided in their health insurance plans. Moreover, the insurer also provides an additional 25% of the sum insured in case it is exhausted during the policy term, due to expensive hospitalization and treatment expenses of a Critical Illness.

For example if we take bread cancer treatment into consideration the drug Herceptin itself costs up to Rs 1 lakh and a patient requires at least 17 vials. So, do the math!

Even the cost of breast surgery comes out to be in six-figures. And the expenses increase further with pre-hospitalization and post-hospitalization costs. To be able to pay for the right treatment, Digital critical illness plan will offer enough coverage to deal with such medical crisis without any financial worries.  Check out the policy features and the list of diseases covered in this policy.
