Apollo Munich launches dengue cover policy at Rs. 444 premium

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 16 Sep,2015

Apollo Munich today launched an exclusive health insurance plan against dengue at an affordable cost of Rs. 444 a unit.

The ‘Dengue Care’ was launched in presence of brand advocate and legendary cricketer Sourav Ganguly at a function here today.

Citing example of his daughter, Ganguly urged everyone to pledge platelets to help people suffering from dengue.

The product available at Rs. 1.2 per day entails onetime payment of Rs. 444 and provides Rs. 50,000 inpatient and Rs. 10,000 OPD coverage, the company said.

The diagnostic cost for dengue comes in the range of Rs. 5,000-10,000 depending upon the locality of the patient. This is the first OTC (over the counter) product in India that covers infectious disease.

“It serves multiple segments of people–those who never bought a health policy but have heard about dengue and those who already have a health insurance. It is a one premium plan for all ages,” said Antony Jacob, CEO, Apollo Munich Health Insurance during a press conference.

The product will also cover expenses of up to Rs. 10,000 for diagnostic tests, consultation, home nursing and pharmacy.

Apollo Munich offers the plan both in cashless and reimbursement form and will give coverage against hospitalisation and outpatient treatment.
