      National Health Insurance Critical Illness Policy

      A basic health insurance policy may not cover the cost of treatment of life-threatening diseases. National critical illness policy is designed to cover the expenses incurred on critical illnesses. Any person above the age of 18 years can get insured. Children between the age group of 3 months and 18 years can be covered, provided the parents are also insured.
