How do deductibles work?

When you create your tailored plan, you have the option of adding deductibles. If, for example, you can choose a deductible of Rs.60,000, you'll need to pay the first Rs. 60,000 of a covered claim or covered claims in any period of cover directly to your hospital , clinic or doctor at the time of treatment. So if your treatment costs are Rs. 1,20,000, you'll need to pay Rs. 60,000, and we'll pay the remaining Rs. 60,000 of covered costs. If a deductible is chosen, you would only have to pay this once during any period of cover irrespective of the number of claims.

What is co-pay and maximum limit on out of pocket expenses option?

Policy provides an option of 20% co-pay. Co-pay is the percentage of every claim you will pay.Out of pocket maximum is the maximum amount you would have to pay in cost share per policy year


  • You have a claim value of Rs. 200,000
  • You have a Rs. 30,000 deductible on your policy.
  • You have a 20% co-pay and Rs. 60,000 out of pocket maximum.
  • We would pay Rs. 1,40,000.

How this is calculated?

After you paid your deductible of Rs. 30,000, your co-pay is 20% of 1,70,000 (34,000). This (34000+30000) is more than your out of pocket maximum, so you would only pay maximum 60,000 for the cost share and we cover the remaining 1,40,000.

Will copayment add-on be applicable for optional covers as well?

Copayment will not apply to Wellness, Dental and Vision option.
