Cover Yourself With
Cancer Insurance

Why Cancer Insurance?

With the rising medical expenses, a health-related contingency like cancer can take toll on your finances. This is where having the protection of a cancer insurance plan can prove to be a saviour. A cancer health insurance policy can help you access the best treatment without you worrying about the medical expenses. The financial security offered by this form of coverage lets you breathe easy, knowing that your savings won’t get depleted in your hour of need.

SBI General Insurance has a range of health insurance plans that can secure you against many unforeseen illnesses. We offer cancer insurance as a rider on indemnity health insurance plans and as a part of a benefit-based payout in critical illness insurance.

Cancer Health Insurance Plans from SBI General Insurance

SBI General Insurance offers a cancer coverage through indemnity-based and benefit-based plans. An indemnity-based plan pays you the actuals of treatment costs up to policy limits. This plan can be enhanced with the help of riders that offer a lump sum payout for serious illnesses like cancer. A benefit-based plan directly pays you a lump sum amount that you can utilise for any expenses you meet during the course of treatment.

Protecting Your Finances

Treatment for cancer can be quite expensive. Your savings may not be enough to cover all the costs you need to meet. A cancer medical insurance plan can help you cover the expenses during the course of treatment. An indemnity-based plan can help you afford treatment while a benefit-based plan may also help you afford costs that fall outside the purview of your health insurance coverage. This kind of financial protection truly gives peace of mind.

Offering Cashless Hospitalisation

Having coverage for cancer means you can enjoy cashless hospitalisation under an indemnity-based health insurance plan. This way, you can focus on getting the help and care you need without having to worry about your finances. SBI General Insurance has a wide network of cashless hospitals across the country.

Functioning as Income Replacement

A benefit-based plan like critical illness insurance can act as income replacement in case you need to stop working while receiving treatment through chemotherapy. The lump sum payout can help you pay your bills and keep your home running.

Tax Benefit

The premiums you pay for health insurance plans are eligible for tax deductions under Section 80D of the prevailing tax laws. You can avail these deductions for the premiums you pay for yourself, your spouse, dependent children, and parents.
    • There are two types of cancer insurance you can get – an indemnity-based plan with cancer cover rider or a benefit-based plan.

      An indemnity plan will cover you for the actual expenses you face while its rider gives a lump sum pay-out, whereas a benefit-based plan just pays you a lump sum amount. You can opt for both these plans to have a comprehnesive coverage when you need it the most.

    • When choosing a cancer health policy, you need to be very particular about selecting the right sum insured. To make a good decision, check the costs of hospital expenses in your city. If you will be opting for an income benefit plan, calculate your monthly expenses to arrive at the correct figure.

    • In order to benefit from cashless treatments, you may avail treatment in Insurer's network empanelled hospital located close to where you live. This will make it easier for you to utilise the full value of your cancer health insurance plan.

    • When buying coverage look for additional benefits offered by the insurer. For instance, SBI General Insurance offers a 15-day free look period on its Critical Illness Insurance Policy. These benefits give you time to study the coverage you have and help you make a good decision.
