    Dear N K Chopra
    Tata AIG offers more benefits and has special coverage through its variants. A normal medical insurance policy would not have cosmetic coverage as well as education benefit. Tata AIG does not cover pre existing diseases which most other health insurance policies do.

    The entitlement is subject to the Sum Assured opted.

    Hi Rajesh
    Medical test requirement is up to insurer.
    Pre-existing condition is any medical problem you might have. If you are suffering from medical ailment, then that particular problem or any problem arising from it will be not be covered.

    Hi Manoranjan
    1. You can take the plan for 1 year and can renew after each year for entire life if no break inbetween.
    2. Premium increase depends on the company, it may or may not increase the premium
    3. There is no increase in Sum Assured
    4. You can apply for claim amount in case you take treatment in non-network hospital.

    Does it includes surgery charges ??
    Take for example if I got to hospitalization for the 5 days, for the some sort of surgery, than, am I able to claim for the surgery charges.or I will just land up in gettting 10,000 only.

    Hi Harshal
    Different surgeries have different amount limits. For instance, amount payable in case of hernia repair is Rs 15,000 (classic variant) and amount payable will be Rs 100,000 in case of marjor organ transplant. So it depends whether surgery is major or minor. There are also additional payout for other hospital expenses.

    However this policy is different from other health insurance plan wherein medical expenses are covered up to the limit of Sum Assured regardless whether surgery is minor or major.
