Detection of a critical illness in you or a family member can be financially draining and can upset your plans to reach your life goals. With the cost of healthcare expenses increasing almost at the double the pace of inflation, a critical illness cover is crucial in helping you meet the medical expenses.
Hospitalization expenses make for only 35% of the total healthcare expenses. It is the other expenses, like OPD, patient transportation, lab and imaging services, and medicines that account for a big chunk of the healthcare expenses. Critical illness cover, along with hospitalization plan, provides a comprehensive coverage and ensures that you don’t need to dip in your savings for medical reasons.
