Insurance Regulatory Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has approved Arogya Sanjeevani Health Policy on 1st April, 2020, as an approach to simplify and standardise health insurance by providing a basic, standard plan that will be offered by all general and health insurance companies, with the same benefits. Perhaps the only difference in the Arogya Sanjeevani health insurance policy offered by different health insurers is in the quoted premium by them because of the services offered during the purchase process, claim settlement and other related processes, number of network hospitals, etc.
The universal Arogya Sanjeevani Health Policy will offer financial support to you and your family during any medical emergency. In April 2020, initially this plan came up with Sum Insured option from ₹1 Lakh - ₹5 Lakh, but considering medical inflation and the pandemic situation, IRDAI brought in latest modifications in July 2020 to the product’s sum insured slabs which makes it compulsory for insurers to offer a sum insured of up to ₹10 Lakh, starting from ₹50,000 and in multiples of ₹50,000.
It covers pre & post hospitalisation expenses which includes bed charges, nursing charges, ICU & doctor consultation charges and many more. This plan comes in two types:
- Individual Plan: Under this plan only 1 policyholder is the beneficiary.
- Family Floater Plan: Arogya Sanjeevani Policy benefits can also be availed by other members of the family. The policyholder can include dependents, such as spouse, children, parents & parents-in-law in a single policy.
