    Hi Navneet
    This policy will pay only in case of hospitalization for more than 24 hours. It will not cover expenses for the injection mentioned by you.

    Hi Karis,

    Pre existing illness is a medical condition that is already there when you buy a health insurance policy. Yes, this includes high blood pressure. There's a waiting period of 4 yrs (in most of the plans) for such pre existing illnesses to start getting covered under the policy.
