Top 3 Coronavirus Insurance Plans in India 2020

If you have term insurance policies & health insurance policies, then the first thing you must do is to ask your insurer this question. Whether death due to coronavirus is covered under your life insurance policies. Or is coronavirus treatment covered under your existing health insurance policy or not. This way you will get the right information.

In many cases, your existing insurance policy will cover treatment related to coronavirus. But again, there may be many clauses as this is a new inclusion. So better to enquire properly and understand the terms & conditions carefully.

Anyway, here are a few of the insurance plans that are providing coronavirus insurance coverage. let's explore them one by one. The source of this information is financialexpress.com.

Should I Buy Coronavirus Insurance Plan in India 2020

If you don't have any health insurance coverage & term insurance protection, then you must buy a term plan. At the same time also buy a health insurance policy with critical illness coverage. I am sure in the coming days almost all health insurance policies will include coronavirus treatment. But you must enquire specifically about coronavirus insurance coverage whichever insurance plan you are going to buying coming days.
