Critical Illness Policy
When a major illness strikes, it not only means high costs for medical care, but it also puts immense pressure on the family to manage their living expenses while the patient recoups.
In case of the above situation, your Critical illness insurance can come to your aid by not only covering hospitalization expenses but also providing you with lump-sum compensation that can help you meet your day to day expenses like child's school fees, Car and House EMIs, credit card payments etc.
- It acts as an income replacement: Critical ailments not only affect the person physically; it also has a major impact on the finances of the family. Critical insurance pays a lump sum amount which can be used to cover medical and household expenses.
- It gives tax benefits: Critical illness payout is tax-free under Section 80D of the Income Tax Act.
- It gives peace of mind: The policy provides peace of mind as now one can concentrate more on medical treatment rather than running around to arrange funds for medical and household expenses.
- It covers treatment taking place in a foreign country: Under a critical illness insurance plan, a fixed sum is paid on the diagnosis of an acute ailment, irrespective of whether the treatment takes place in India or abroad. It means the policy can help you if you want to go overseas for further medical treatment.
