Besides this, there are many more benefits that an insured gets to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. There are several additional benefits that are included in the list of benefits to help a policy holder live life to the fullest.
There are many health insurance providers in India who design their products to offer coverage for both curative and preventive health needs of their customers.

The company has included add-on services with each of its products to offer coverage for preventive health needs.
