Kotak Health Shield

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.

What is Kotak Health Shield Plan?

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.

Salient features of Kotak Health Shield plan

  • Lump-sum payouts on the diagnosis of critical illnesses
    Today’s stressful lifestyle and changing food habits have caused a rapid rise in lifestyle diseases. Such disorders are principal causes of critical ailments, such as
    o Heart attack
    o Liver damage
    o Kidney failure
    o Stroke
    Hence, medical policies as financial safety nets against the treatment expenses have become a necessity these days.
    Regular health insurance plans compensate for hospitalisation costs and related expenses. But critical illnesses often need long-term medical care. Frequent doctor visits, diagnostic tests, and costs of medicines or rehabilitation therapies can become a financial burden.
    Kotak Health Shield medical insurance offers a lump-sum payout upfront on the diagnosis of the health conditions listed. The payment does not depend on actual medical costs incurred. It is based on the coverage you select when you buy the plan.
    Thus, you need not restrict your treatment to network hospitals affiliated with your insurance company to avail of the cashless benefit. You are free to undergo treatment from any healthcare
  • Ease of claim disbursal
    Kotak Health Shield does not require you to submit medical and hospitalisation bills to get the coverage amount. Your claim is processed based on the medical test report confirming your diagnosis, ensuring fast access to funds.
  • Income supplement in case of job loss
    Apart from funding your treatment costs, you can also use the payout amount to settle outstanding debts if any, or even supplement your household earnings. Add-on benefits can also provide a steady income stream in case of a career break due to ill health.

What are the Different Plan Options?

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.

What are the Different Payouts under the Plan Options?

Personal Accident Shield

  • Payout for an unforeseen demise due to an accident during the policy tenure - 100% of the Sum Assured less any claims have already been paid due to disability.

Other Benefits available under the Kotak Health Shield Plan

Kotak Health Shield provides several value-added services irrespective of benefits availed under the base plan. These wellness benefits, built into your coverage, include:

  • Emergency Medical Evacuation
    If a medical emergency arises at a location without provisions for adequate medical care, Kotak Life wellness partners arrange for your transfer to a suitable medical facility. Along with transportation, necessary personnel and equipment are also provided. Your health policy covers the full cost of such evacuation.
  • Medical Monitoring
    The wellness partners supervise if appropriate care is provided during your hospital stay and convey the necessary details to your family members.
  • Medical Repatriation
    Once your health condition stabilises during hospital treatment away from your home, your return transportation will be organised. The transfer will take place under medical supervision if needed.
  • Compassionate visit
    In the case of ill health away from home, the presence of a near one provides relief. It may even help in the healing process. Kotak Health Shield arranges for economy, round-trip transportation charges for one close relative or friend to the location where you undergo treatment. This benefit is applicable for hospitalisation longer than seven days.
  • Second medical opinion
    On the detection of a grave illness, it is crucial to be sure of the right line of treatment. This benefit allows you to receive a documented second opinion from a medical specialist. This extra consultation can help remove any ambiguity about the diagnosis or the prescribed treatment.

The payouts are also tax-free.
