HDFC ERGO launches new health insurance product

HDFC ERGO expanded its health insurance portfolio with the launch of ‘Group Critical Illness Insurance’ policy, which covers the entire family or employees under one umbrella of protection. Unlike a regular health insurance policy where the insured makes a claim based on the actual expenses incurred on hospitalisation, the Group Critical Illness plan pays a lumpsum to the insured on diagnosis of listed critical illness covered under the policy.

Anurag Rastogi, Head, Retail Underwriting & Claims, HDFC ERGO, said the new product “provides financial protection to the entire family or employees against potential financial liabilities arising out of critical illnesses, which requires specialised treatment for an extended period of time.”
