Health Insurance Riders: Do you Need Them?

Medical expenses are constantly rising, to add to that, the cost of Health Insurance can increase with time. However, the coverage or sum assured of your Health Policy or Medical Insurance often remain the same. Imagine a situation where you or one of your family members is hospitalized or diagnosed with an illness, however, the sum insured offered by your Health plan is inadequate. Such situations are not only a danger to your life but also to your finances. In such a scenario, a Health Insurance Rider or Top-up Plan can help increase your coverage as per your needs.

By buying a Health Policy rider or top-up plan, you can be assured of adequate coverage, should your medical bills overshoot the sum insured amount of your base Health Plan. At Finserv MARKETS, we offer ‘Extra Care Plus’ Top Up plan to ensure that your medical expenses are fully covered.

Benefits Offered Under Top Up Plans:

  • Sum Insured up to Rs. 50 Lakh
