ACKO Health Insurance Policy

Buying Guide

Introducing ACKO Health Insurance Policy with 1 Cr. sum insured: a revolutionary health plan without the many terms and conditions. Instead, it’s based on real insights and feedback from people like you who expect better from their insurer.

What is ACKO Health Insurance Policy with 1 Crore Sum Insured?

If we asked, what have we learned to value because of the COVID-19 pandemic? Many of us would say good health and financial planning. That’s what health insurance is supposed to help you with.

As a concept, health insurance in India has been around for more than 70 years and millions of Indians are already insured. Then, what really is the problem?

The many (and sometimes hidden) terms and conditions. Be it long waiting periods on pre-existing diseases or caps on room rent charges, the limitations are many for a few other health insurance policies. These same terms and conditions become a source of disappointment and frustration when you really need your health insurance — during claims. Nobody likes claim rejections and out of pocket payments. We know exactly how that feels and this is where we step in.

The ACKO Health Insurance Policy with a high sum insured value of ₹1 Crore has been designed to cover you from day 1 and takes care of 100% of your hospital expenses. It’s a simple plan. We want to keep you stress-free about insurance, so you can focus on your health.

You may not always need medical treatment out of an emergency. Sometimes, people are diagnosed with an ailment and are hospitalised to treat it. The costs of such treatments can be comparatively higher than treatment for injuries.

For example, doctors may suggest surgery to remove a cancerous organ. This is a major surgery which requires close monitoring and follow-up treatments. This entire medical event can easily cost ₹15L - ₹20L, depending upon the severity of the illness. At this point, we don’t want anyone to worry about waiting period, copayment, room rent capping, etc. that exponentially increases out-of-pocket expenses.

All anyone needs is a policy with a high sum insured and that takes care of all hospital bills. That’s where ACKO Health Insurance Policy takes the cake.

What are the benefits of buying a health plan with 1 Crore sum insured?

Sum insured as high as 1 Cr. helps cover the cost of hospitalisation from almost every possible medical emergency. Let’s tell you more about what you get when you buy the ACKO Health Insurance Policy with 1 Crore sum insured.

One cover for all hospital expenses

With our health plan, you will always have a sufficient and high sum insured if and whenever you need it. You don’t have to worry about hospitalisation expenses because we will take care of it all.

Included add-ons for added benefits

In most other health insurance plans, add-ons often get skipped while buying the policy. Later, you end up with extra expenses at the time of claim. With ACKO Health Insurance Policy, add-ons such as Room Rent Waiver, Doctor on-call, etc. are already included in your policy so you don’t have to pay for these out of your pocket at the time of claim.

Restore sum insured without top-up

With a high sum insured of ₹1 crore, you probably will not require top-ups or super top-ups. However, in the rare case that your sum insured gets exhausted, you have the option to restore the ₹1 Crore sum insured by 100% if necessary. Top-ups will be a thing of the past.

Critical illnesses included in the same plan

Since critical illnesses have a higher cost and risk, people generally buy a separate policy, at a very high premium, to cover future contingencies. With the ₹1 crore sum insured plan, you don’t need a separate policy at all. We will cover hospitalisation expenses for critical illnesses under the base plan itself.

Top features of the 1 Crore health plan

The benefits of ACKO Health Insurance Policy are many. But, two of them truly stand out and are our most important features that we’re sure you’ll love too.

Zero waiting period

✅ ACKO Health Insurance Policy covers you from Day 1.

The waiting period of few other insurers range from 1 to 4 years. Can you imagine waiting for such a long time before you can claim for a specific illness in spite of having health insurance? Till then, you have to bear all the related expenses. With our policy, you can claim for hospitalisation without waiting for even one day of buying the 1 Crore plan.

Zero deductions at claim

✅ ACKO will pay your entire hospital bill.

The claim amount consists of many types of expenses such as hospitalisation expenses, copayment, compulsory deductibles, non-payable medical expenses, etc. Out of these, some expenses are not paid by basic health insurance plans by other insurers at the time of claim. When you have ACKO Health Insurance Policy, you don’t have to worry at all about any such deductions in claim.

Add-ons included with ACKO Health Insurance Policy

With our health plan, add-ons such as Room Rent Waiver, Doctor on call, etc. are already included in your policy.

In many other health insurance plans, add-ons often get skipped while buying the policy. Later, you end up with extra expenses at the time of claim. With ACKO Health Insurance Policy, you don’t have to pay for any of these add-ons out of your pocket at the time of claim.

Included: Non-medical expenses waiver

Under our health plan, all types of non-medical expenses are already covered. Some examples of non-medical expenses include the following.

Food (other than provided by the hospital), Nebuliser kit, Registration/admission charges, Nutritionist or dietician charges, Housekeeping charges, Surgical blades, Disposable razors, Bandages, cotton, Syringes, needles, sterilised injections, Digestion gels.

Few other insurers do not cover these non-medical expenses under their basic plan and you have to pay for them yourself. With ACKO Health Insurance Policy, you don’t have to worry because we will pay it all in full.

Included: Room Rent Waiver

Your ACKO Health Insurance Policy includes the cost of the Room Rent Waiver add-on. That means, you can stay in any hospital room of your choice (be it a general ward, a private room, a deluxe/super deluxe room, or even a suite). We will pay the full room rent without any deductions. 

This is a major advantage for you when you compare it with the room rent capping of few other basic health insurance plans.

For example, let’s say a basic health plan has a capping of up to ₹800 under room rent. It means the insurer will cover the maximum treatment cost if you stay in a room that costs ₹800. If you choose a room that costs more than ₹800, it will have a negative impact on the claim amount. You may have to pay much more from the pocket than anticipated. That’s not the case with us.

When you’re covered under our health insurance policy, we pay your entire room rent. There is no room rent capping applicable.

Included: Doctor on call

Whenever you need to get in touch with a doctor, we give you access to multiple teleconsultations under our 1 Crore health plan.

Basic plans may not provide this option. Traditionally, teleconsultations have not been a popular add-on coverage for health insurance plans. However, since COVID-19, the need to get in touch with a doctor remotely has become a necessity. The doctor on call feature of ACKO Health Insurance Policy helps patients take a doctor’s opinion easily via video calls.

Included: Waiting period reduction for specific illness

This health insurance policy comes with the Waiting Period Waiver add-on. This means, you can rest assured that we will bear treatment costs for even pre-existing illnesses from day 1. Provided you disclose them while buying the policy.

Usually with few other insurers, there is a specific waiting period anywhere between 1-4 years for specific illnesses such as tumour, ENT disorder, hernia, osteoporosis, etc. Under these plans, you cannot claim during the waiting period even if you need to avail treatment and you end up bearing the treatment cost yourself.

With our health plan, you can focus on improving your health and let us bear your financial burden for covering the medical expenses from day 1.

What’s covered?

Following is the list of features you get with our 1 Cr health insurance plan.

Hospitalisation from any medical emergency

Hospitalisation expenses make up a major part of the bill. We will cover all related expenses when you are hospitalised for an illness or other covered medical procedures.

Expenses can include operation theatre costs, medical practitioners’ fees, medicine bills, diagnostic tests, and costs of surgical or medical appliances as required for your treatment.

No room rent capping

You can choose any hospital room of your choice and we will cover the cost of room rent and ICU charges.

You may require special care and advanced medical machinery in case of a major illness or a serious injury. You will get full financial support from us if anything of such unfortunate nature happens to you or an insured loved one. It can ensure the best and most timely medical treatment and faster recovery.

All types of daycare treatments

Medical science has made exponential advancements over the past few decades. Thanks to these, a medical procedure that used to require prolonged hospitalisation, can now be completed within a few hours.

For example, cataract surgery does not require you to stay under observation for a long time. The doctor may allow you to go home within a few hours. Such procedures are covered under our health insurance policy without any additional premium.

Pre and post-hospitalisation expenses

Sometimes, a patient needs to be prepared for surgery before a planned hospitalisation. This may include medical treatment, diagnostic tests, checkups, etc. Likewise, follow up treatment may be necessary to recover from hospitalisation.

For example, chemotherapy is sometimes recommended to cancer patients after surgery to avoid the chances of recurrence. If not covered under health insurance, such expenses can have a significant impact on your finances. We offer coverage for pre-hospitalisation for 60 days and post-hospitalisation for 120 days to reduce your monetary burden.

Multiple road ambulance trips

Every road ambulance trip made between your home and the hospital may not be covered under a general health insurance policy and you end up paying for them. Since we want to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses, we will cover all such ambulance trips for each hospitalisation. We will cover multiple trips up to the sum insured.

Airlifting

Under this policy, we will cover the cost of transporting you to a well-equipped hospital in another city/state in case of an emergency if enough facilities are not available locally. Transport will be provided by medically-equipped speciality aircraft, commercial airline, train, road ambulance, or via air ambulance.

The cost of one such trip needs thousands of rupees. With the help of our Domestic Emergency Evacuation coverage, the 1 Cr. plan will ensure that you receive necessary medical care in any situation without paying out of your pocket.

Other coverages:

  • Medical treatment at home: Medical treatments availed at home with the help of required medical setup is called Domiciliary Hospitalisation. The related expenses are covered under our 1 Cr. plan.

  • Organ donation: If you are undergoing surgery to donate an organ, we will cover the costs of hospitalisation for you with the 1 Cr. plan.

  • Second opinion consultations: You may sometimes seek a second medical opinion from a certified practitioner in case you are advised to get hospitalised. We will cover the consultation costs for you when you feel the need for a second opinion.

  • Inflation protect sum insured: Rising medical costs and inflation may create a need for a higher sum insured in the future. With ACKO Health Insurance Policy, you will get a percentage-wise increase of sum insured if you renew the plan with us for 10 continuous policy years. We will add a fixed amount depending on the sum insured of the previous policy, for each of these 10 years.

  • Restore sum insured: We will restore your sum insured amount by 100% if it proves to be insufficient because of previous claims in a policy year.

  • AYUSH coverage: AYUSH stands for Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy. These are unconventional treatments and some people prefer them over allopathy. If you are one of them, your 1 Cr. health plan will pay for the cost of treatment.

  • All medically necessary hospitalisation: We will cover the cost of treatment for a medically necessary hospitalisation under the 1 Cr. policy.
