Benefit Options

  1. Option 1

    If an individual Criticare plan has been chosen, then the facility of lump sum payment is available to the insured on the sum insured. This means at the time of critical illness claims the insured will get the whole sum insured amount.

  2. Option 2

    A lump-sum payment would be made on a claim based on the detection of critical illness during the policy tenure. In addition, 10% of the sum insured will be paid to the beneficiary for a continuous 5 years from the date of a lump-sum payment. While the coverage will terminate for that member and the policy continues for the other insured.

    In the case of a family floater, the benefit chosen is applicable to both the adults. In case, insured 1 is detected with critical illness, then the company will pay the lump sum amount. The rule of the policy is that in one particular year only one member can avail of the benefit option. The other insured person will get the benefit amount in the next year or when the issue of critical illness is detected but not in the same year.

Premium Payable by an individual at a different sum insured under Criticare Plan

We have seen above that how the premium varies on the basis of the sum insured. With the increase in age, the premium amount increases due to lifestyle changes, smoking habits, pre-existed illnesses, and other factors. For your better understanding, we have prepared a graph. The graph represents how the monthly premiums payable for a sum insured of Rs. 20 Lakhs against a 1 year policy change with age.

Premium Payable by an individual at different ages under Criticare Plan

Premium Payable at different ages under Criticare Plan

Let's understand this with the help of an example,

Ashutosh took a CritiCare plan of Rs 50 lakhs for him and her spouse. Ashutosh is 35 and his wife is 33. The annual income of primary insured i.e Ashutosh is Rs.10 lakhs.

The policy was taken for two years and the premium decided was Rs. 38,626*. The couple opted for Benefit Option 2 (please refer above to the Benefit Options).

Ashutosh was detected with a critical illness after 10 years from the inception of the policy. He claimed for the hospitalization expenses incurred on the treatment of the disease which was accepted by the company. He received a lump-sum payment of the sum insured and his share of benefit will terminate. Now, his wife is the only beneficiary of the policy and will receive 10% of 50 lakhs every year for 5 continuous years counting from the date of a lump-sum payment.

*The premium paid was after the online discount (10%) and 2 years policy discount (12.5%).

Please Note: The sum insured taken must not cross 12 times of the income, if you are salaried class and 15 times, if self-employed.
