Hospitalisation expenses can be a nightmare for anyone unprepared to tackle them. Having a comprehensive health insurance is one of the best ways to secure oneself from unexpected hospitalisation. No matter how comprehensive a health insurance policy is, it can only protect an insured from actual medical expenses. However, most hospitalisation events are accompanied by a range of additional expenses related to food, comfort, and travel. With regard to these expenses, a daily cash insurance policy will be handy. SBI General Hospital Daily Cash Insurance Policy provides this cover for the insured. Irrespective of the actual medical expenses, this policy provides a fixed cash benefit everyday when the insured is hospitalised for a specific period of time.
This coverage is available for children from the age of 3 months provided that their parents are concurrently enrolled in this policy. Some of the key eligibility criteria for this policy are as follows.
