Mediclaim Policy

All you need to know: Mediclaim Insurance Policy

A mediclaim policy is a form of insurance that provides indemnification to the insured during an unexpected medical crisis. The insurance company takes care of the medical expenses arising due to a disease or an accident. It helps the insured to focus on their recovery instead of worrying about the medical bills. The amount of coverage is limited to the sum that the policyholder’s is insured for
