Anyone who has gone through a medical emergency will know that it leaves one with no time to think and can easily set you back financially. Hence it is very important to have sufficient health insurance coverage. But how do you know if your cover is sufficient? When you buy health insurance, you roughly estimate the sum insured basis your current needs and the premium to be paid. But it is very possible that you realise in some time that you need higher cover but may not be able to pay a higher premium. At such times, a top-up health plan can be purchased to enhance your health insurance policy’s limit at minimal rates. In simple words, while a regular policy reimburses hospital bills as per the sum insured, a top-up health insurance plan covers the additional expenses after a certain limit is reached. These plans work as an extra cover for your regular health insurance plans. In case you have exhausted the sum insured limit of your health insurance plan, you can claim your top-up health insurance plan to get coverage for the additional treatment expenses.

You can choose from the two top-up plans given below:

Rs. 50 lakh*


Bajaj Allianz Extra care plus plan

Rs. 50 lakh*

Key features and benefits of top-up health insurance plans

  • Pre and post-hospitalisation coverage

    There are medical expenses involved even before getting admitted to a hospital and in the recovery phase post-discharge from the hospital. These include diagnostics tests, such as angiograms, X-rays, MRIs, medication, investigating processes and more. Top-up health insurance covers all these charges incurred up to 60 days before and 90 days post-hospitalisation.

  • Organ donor expenses coverage

    Donors feel reluctant to come forward as they must cover their medical expenses. With a top-up health insurance plan, you can steer clear of this major deterrent. It covers the surgical and medical costs associated with harvesting a critical organ transplant of the insured.

  • Emergency ambulance coverage

    You no longer have to pay for emergency ambulance charges if your health insurance does not cover it. With a top-up plan, you get the sum insured as per the insurance purchased.
