A Non-Linked, Non-Participating, Fixed Benefit Health Plan
Health is the greatest blessing for all human beings. Today, every individual is aware that the numbers of illnesses are increasing day by day, and so are the related costs for treatment. For most, treatment in the best facility could lead to a dent in the pockets while for some, it may lead to selling assets and mounting debts. Therefore, it is important to plan for your health emergencies before it is too late.
Presenting Kotak Health Shield, a fixed benefit health insurance plan which covers early or major stages illnesses/conditions related to Cancer, Cardiac, Liver, Neuro and also offers financial protection against Personal Accident - accidental death or disability.
Kotak Health Shield is a critical illness insurance plan that covers the most common life-threatening health conditions in India – cancer, cardiac problems, liver diseases, and neurological disorders. You can also include financial cover for an unfortunate event resulting from an accident in your plan.
Mr Satish, a 35-year-old male, opts for Cancer Shield with Sum Assured of ₹30 lakhs & Cardiac Shield with Sum Assured of ₹20 lakhs for a period of 40 years. He also opts for all the Optional Benefits - Daily Hospital Cash Benefit (₹5,000/day), Waiver of Premium & Income Benefit. For this, he pays a regular premium of ₹15,435~ per annum.
(~The above premium figure is exclusive of Goods and Services Tax and Cess, as applicable. Goods and Services Tax and Cess are subject to change from time to time as per the prevailing tax laws.)
Five different Plan Options are available under Kotak Health Shield health insurance plan. You can select any one option, or more, as per your health care needs. The options include:
Plan Option A: Personal Accident Shield
Your job may need you to travel a lot, or you may love to visit new places. Or you may have to work in unsafe conditions.
In case of any eventualities due to an accident, your dependents may have to face financial challenges. If you have pending debts, they will have to shoulder the EMIs.
The Personal Accident Shield safeguards your loved ones against such economic distress. The lump-sum payout in case of an accident-related death or disability can cover their immediate expenses and unpaid loans.
However, the Personal Accident Shield option is not available as a standalone option. You can opt for it only when you select at least one other option available under the plan.
Plan Option B: Cardiac Shield
Heart diseases have emerged as one of the leading medical conditions in India. It is no longer an age-related health issue. A shocking study reveals that 35% of the patients hospitalised due to their first heart attack were below the age of 35 years.
The treatment for cardiac conditions often requires lifelong medication. Complications can lead to surgeries. The Cardiac Shield Option can shield your resources against the financial strain of such long-term medical care.
Plan Option C: Cancer Shield
The National Cancer Registry Programme Report 2020 by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) predicts India’s cancer load to reach 13.9 lakh cases in 2020. Fortunately, recent advancements in medicine enable complete recovery from this deadly disease. However, treatment can be expensive.
Moreover, even after successful surgery to remove a malignant tumour, annual diagnostic scans are vital to ensure remission. The lump-sum payout from the Cancer Shield health insurance can cover such expenses.
Plan Option D: Neuro Shield
The estimated frequency of severe neurological disorders, like brain stroke in India, is from 14 to 17 per 1000 individuals. Yet, in terms of health insurance, India lags significantly in coverage for neurological diseases.
The Neuro Shield Option offers payouts on the diagnosis of various nerve-related ailments and can make your recovery process free from financial anxieties.
Plan Option E: Livo Shield
Incidences of liver diseases are mostly linked to erratic lifestyles nowadays. The seriousness of the issue becomes clear from the staggering figure of 10 lakh liver cirrhosis cases reported in India every year. With liver transplant prices going up to about ₹37 lakhs (USD 50,000), costs for adequate medical care in liver diseases can be prohibitive.
The Livo Shield Plan can provide the financial fallback to help you get the best possible treatments.

Since coverage for pre-existing diseases does not apply to Kotak Health Shield, a declaration of health can suffice to buy the plan.

Hence, to claim the insured sum, you must submit a medical test report confirming the diagnosis.
