Corona Kavach health insurance policy for covid: Premium, benefits, other details


NEW DELHI : Buying new health insurance coverage has become difficult following the massive spread of Covid19 in recent months. Insurance companies were concerned about offering a health insurance policy to people with flu-like symptoms, even minor ones. To cope with the crisis, IRDA has designed a standard product specific to Covid called “Corona Kavach”. This indemnity-based individual Covid standard health policy will meet basic health insurance needs to insure the public with common policy formulations across the industry.

IRDA has mandated 30 general and health insurers to offer and market the standard Corona Kavach policy.

The Corona Kavach policy will be available on an individual and family floating basis.

Sum insured: The minimum amount insured under the Corona Kavach policy will be ??50,000 and the maximum sum insured will be ??5 lakh, in multiples of ??50,000.

Blanket: The standard Corona Kavach policy will cover hospital costs upon diagnosis of Covid on an indemnity basis and optional daily cash coverage on an indemnity basis.

The policy will also cover any comorbid condition triggered due to Covid-19 during the period of hospitalization.

The policy also covers pre-hospitalization costs for 15 days and post-hospitalization costs for 30 days.

Home treatment costs: The policy will cover the treatment costs incurred by the insured to receive home treatment for Covid in the event of a positive diagnosis for up to 14 days per incident, which in the normal course would require care and treatment in a hospital but is in fact taken while housebound.

Sub-limits: The policy will allow home care for a maximum of 14 days per incident.

Ambulance costs are worth ??2000 per hospitalization will be covered.

Optional Hospital Daily Cash coverage will be 0.5% of the sum insured per day subject to a maximum of 15 days in an insurance period for each insured member.

Policy term: The policy will be available for three and a half months (3 ½ months), six and a half months (6 ½ months), nine and a half months (9 ½ months) including the waiting period.

Waiting time: There is a waiting period of 15 days before the entry into force of the coverage of the contract.
