Did you know that cancer is not covered by regular health insurance and the treatment cost may vary from Rs 2L- 20L. As cancer is categorized into three stages, ideally the insurance plan should cover all three stages. Unfortunately, it doesn’t. How and what policy to choose? If the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, 25% of the sum assured will be paid. Further, if diagnosed at the critical stage, 100% of the sum assured, would be paid after deducting any previously claimed amount. Hence, it is important to choose a plan that covers all types of cancers.
