You are a Modern Woman. You have broken social barriers and proved yourself in being at par with men on all walks of life. Now, know which health plan can back this success?
Once restricted to the four walls of domesticity, today women have crossed over to excel at rewarding professional opportunities and at managing sprawling corporate houses.
The society has also furthered women’s cause by according them with special privileges in this otherwise male-oriented world. That is why we see special quotas for women in legislative assemblies, government bodies, and public transport like buses and railways. Even health insurance companies are also understanding that women deserve special coverage against specific conditions – be it the health risk associated with pregnancy and child-birth or breast and cervical cancers. Know the three health insurance plans that have been specifically designed for women:
This is just like any other health insurance plan, with the difference that it offers special privilege for women. A single woman or a girl child gets a discount on premium.
A single woman –
Whether unmarried, divorced or widowed – can avail a discount of 5 percent on the health insurance premium. The divorced and widowed women can also avail this discount while buying this health plan for their children.
If a girl child is included in a family floater cover, a 5-percent-discount in the health insurance premium is available to the policyholder, even if the person getting the insurance is a man.
