COVID-19 cases are multiplying by the minute. There's no sign of the flattening curve or vaccines that can prevent the Pandemic from spreading any further. Amid these unprecedented times, the prominence of proper healthcare and health insurance is now more than ever. Some people already have health insurance. But what about those who don't have adequate, or worse, any health insurance at all?
To our luck, IRDAI has put forward the provisions to protect us from the expenses incurred during COVID-19 treatment. According to the new norms, health insurance companies are mandated to launch 'Corona Kavach' policy to cover the treatment cost. This is an indemnity policy that provides COVID-19 treatment coverage for up to 9.5 months against a one-time payment.
