Don't look only at the rates, look at the coverage part also. Lot of companies are offering lot of different product please see that also.
yes, this is what I meant when I asked for your advice, I'm not looking at rates, but need comprenensive cover with an insurance provider who is honest and genuine (If such a company exists). I was talking to someone who told me to go for United India's offering.... what do you think?

Again, a comprehensive cover is what I'm looking for - with a provider who is not a cheat and doesn't hide behind false excuses when the time comes to honour the claim.

One thing to be very clear about govt companies.

These companies have "sub limits" for procedures.

Lets say you have 5 lakh coverage., You undergo a major surgery in Mumbai/Delhi. It would cost 3 - 4 lakh rupees.

But company might have a sub limit that would limit payout to 2 lakh for that procedure.

Under a goverment company service is a major concern when it comes to claim. I am not saying that they are not paying claims but they are too slow in the claim process.

Try Cholamandalam their policy is life long renewable. but they have little less no. of hospital in there list, if that is ok with you then the product is very good.

With Bajaj I have only one issue that they don't have a policy which is lifelong renewable. Product feathers are good.

Reliance again does not have a product which is lifelong renewable.

At least ICICI Pru's policy that I have (through work) and Appollo DKV does not have Sub Limits.
Earlier, I had Mediclaim though National Insurance (family floater), and they refused to pay more than 40k for Grade 1 (minor) surgery. They have sub-limit of 40 k. Which is fine for small cities where such surgeries would cost 20 - 30k.

Such procedures cost ~1 lakh in most big hospitals in Mumbai.

It can not be Icici Pru - It should be Icici Lombard. Right?

All the Icici policy are having a sub limit in case of individual case. Your's is a group health insurance policy Right?

Yaa its ICICI Lombard (Group policy through employer). Not sure about sub limits for policies bought individually.

Appllo DPV does not have Sub limits, I bought it myself.

Now what you are going for is a individual health policy. where in no pre-existing will be covered for first 3 to 5 year's and secondly no pregnancy or related dieses will be covered.
There is one policy from Iffco-Tokio which covers maternity expenses (to a cetain extent - Rs 25k - 50k) for individual policies. I will try and find more about that.

Bumping the thread..

So team, it's time to renew the Medi-Claim insurance. Somehow I am not convinced to go with Reliance this time. So which should I look at ??

My requirement will be a simple cover which should not be bounded by amount of bedding or type of ambulance or uppper limit for a surgery I can opt i.e. without any "condition apply" thingy . I want a straight and honest Medi-claim.

Any reason why you are not renewing with Reliance? Bad experience?

Not exactly the bad experience, but haven't heard a single word of appreciation from anyone regarding their claim settlement. Only good thing about reliance is low premium, according to people discussed with.

That's my point is, why waste money when you need to fight for taking up it's benefit. Moreover one is actually in weakest state of mind when a nearer or policy taker is hospitalized, One should be atleast stress free from medicals bills side.

From LIC's site, it does not seem to cover non-hospitalization expenses. So not sure how it would cover visits?
