Is schizophrenia is covered in critical illness?

Well, if we talk about schizophrenia cover in India, then you cant find any specific plan that can offer coverage against the same. Insurance companies always put mental illnesses in the list of exclusions. However, according to the Mental Healthcare Act, 2017 which came into force from May 29, 2017, has made it mandatory to provide medical insurance for mental illness. But to date, none of the insurance companies has come out with a product that covers ailments such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc.
