Chola - Who can buy the Chola Super Topup Insurance Plan Content

Who can buy the Chola Super Topup Insurance Plan?

While it is a good idea for every policyholder to get a super top-up plan, some can benefit greatly from this policy.

Persons over 60 years of age

As you grow older, your health problems increase, and so does your trips to the hospital. As a result, you end up making claims from your insurance more frequently than you would have in your thirties. There is a great possibility that you could end up using all your sum insured in a short period.

To prevent this from happening, senior citizens and parents should strongly consider getting this super top-up health insurance. Not only does it ensure better coverage, but the premiums to be paid also reduce considerably. This policy works as a win-win situation for the elderly.

Those with chronic diseases

If you are suffering from a chronic disease that tends to have acute exacerbations, you are aware of how frequently you need to avail yourself of various hospital services. This could include daily dialysis for kidney diseases, immune system disorders such as systemic lupus erythematosus and many others.

While basic insurance policies will provide daily allowances, they often fall short of the bills to be paid. Such persons can benefit greatly from a super top-up plan. Not only does this cover the low sum insured, but the premiums charged are also much lower.

Those with a family history of certain diseases

Genetics and heredity have a major influence on your body. Therefore, if any members in your family suffer from diseases and disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, cardiac diseases and so on, there is a high chance you could also end up getting them.

Since it is always a good idea to be prepared and precautious, opting for a super top-up plan in addition to your existing health insurance works like an additional cover and can help you out in the long run.

Those living in extended families

Those who live in extended or joint families with multiple members are used to buying everything in bulk. This also stands true for health insurances. Normally, most policyholders opt for a family floater plan to cover for each family member.

However, if the sum insured is not large enough, it may get used up very soon. To prevent this from happening, you can get a super top-up plan, allowing you to meet the needs of all the family members without paying ginormous premiums!

Those working in the corporate sector

If you are an employee in a corporate company, you have most likely been provided with an insurance plan by your employer. However, most plans provided to employees have a very limited sum insured, which gets used up much faster than you would think.

In such a case, instead of getting a new health insurance plan, you can simply purchase a super top-up plan. These plans come with a similar sum insured as the standard policies but charge much lower premiums. You can enjoy the same benefits as medical health insurance but at much lower prices!

Chola - The benefits provided by Chola Super Topup insurance Content

The benefits provided by Chola Super Topup insurance

Once you have studied the benefits of the super top-up health insurance and have understood it with an example, the next step is understanding why Chola MS’ Super Topup is a great choice.

Long term cover

Most health insurances are available for 1, 2 or 3 years. The lower your policy tenure, the higher is the premium charged from you. At Chola MS, the Chola super topup insurance policy is available for these same tenures but with a much lower premium.

Since the cover is available for a longer term, you do not have to set up multiple reminders for policy renewals or waste time on extended waiting periods. Moreover, frequent renewals come with higher premiums, and the long term helps you save up on that as well!

No mandatory medical checkups

If you have ever applied for medical insurance, you are aware of the requirement of medical checkups and tests if you are above 50 years of age. Depending upon the results of the test, your premium is determined. The more abnormalities your results show, the higher your premium is likely to be. This is one of the major reasons why many people choose not to get health insurance.

However, with the Chola super topup insurance plan, you do not require medical checkups up to 55 years of age. If you end up getting this additional coverage even earlier, you can easily cross the waiting period and even pay lower premiums for your plan.

Tax exemption

To ease your financial burden, the Chola super topup insurance policy at Chola MS provides a tax exemption under section 80D of the Income Tax Act. Now you can enjoy your insurance cover without worrying about any additional costs!

Cashless hospitalisation

Medical emergencies can strike at any time and any place. It may so happen that you do not have enough cash on you at that moment and are unable to pay the medical bills. Many investigations and tests also require a prior payment before they are conducted. At such a time, Chola MS comes to your rescue.

Our Chola super topup insurance policy is available and applicable in over 7760 hospitals in the country, along with services of cashless hospitalisation. Our insurance provider directly gets in touch with the hospital administration to clear off the payments. With our policy, you can receive treatment without stressing about the hospital bills.

Relaxed entry age

One of the biggest challenges with health insurance policies is that they have narrow age ranges where the policy can be purchased or is applicable. This is particularly true for the other family members besides the primary policyholder. As a result, even if the plan is purchased as a family floater plan, the benefits cannot be fully availed by all.

Chola MS solves this problem for its clients. Our Chola super topup insurance policy has a relaxed entry age from 3 months to 70 years. The primary holder should be at least 18 years of age at the time of purchase of the policy, but the benefits can be enjoyed by any family member between the above-mentioned age range.

This ensures that all the members of your family enjoy the financial security and protection of the super top-up insurance plan at Chola MS.

Lifelong renewal

The Chola super topup insurance plan of Chola MS does not have an upper limit when it comes to policy renewal. Regardless of whether your policy tenure is 1, 2 or 3 years, you can renew it as many times as you require the cover.

The tenure of the policy can also be changed at the time of the renewal as per the suitability of the policyholder. If you opt for longer tenures, you enjoy lower premiums and also do not need to place frequent reminders for renewals.

Vast and varied options for sum insured and deductibles

Every individual has different requirements when it comes to visiting the hospital and getting treatments. Some may be suffering from severe conditions or chronic diseases, which requires them to frequently receive treatment and hospitalisation. Some only suffer from temporary diseases and recover with just a few doctor consultations.

Therefore, since the needs of each individual vary, the insurance policy options also vary. At Chola MS, we offer a wide range of options for sum insured and deductibles for you to choose from. Our sum insured can be as low as Rs. 3 lakhs, with a maximum of Rs. 25 lakhs.

You can pick whichever amount you feel is suitable for you and your family's health. Our deductibles range depend upon the sum insured you pick, but even there, you can enjoy multiple options. For example, for a sum insured of Rs. 3 lakh, you can opt for deductibles worth Rs. 1 lakh, 2 lakh or 3 lakh. The highest amount of deductibles is Rs. 20 lakh.

With these options, you are free to devise and customise your policy with a sum insured and a deductible that you can afford.

Discounts

At Chola MS, we aim to make your life as easy as possible. This includes reducing your financial stresses and burdens wherever you can. Therefore, in addition to providing affordable deductibles and premiums, we also offer discounts to our clients if they opt for the family floater plan and the individual policy plan.

Any policy that covers more than 2 family members under its coverage is applicable for a discount. For 3 to 5 members, we offer a 5% discount, a 7% discount for 6 to 7 members and a 10% discount for more than 7 family members.

Our offers also extend to the tenure of your policy. If you opt for our long term policies of a 2-year tenure, we provide a 6% discount and a 12% discount for a 3-year policy tenure.

Another special discount that is available at Chola MS is the 10% off from the insurance policy purchase if you directly buy the policy from us instead of intermediating with third-party administrators and providers. This direct purchase is not only more economical for you but also ensures the safety and security of the policy.
