Niva Bupa Health Insurance on Thursday launched ‘ReAssure 2.0’, which the company touted as revolutionary adding that the plan is an upgrade to its existing ReAssure policy with many industry-first features. The company said the plan promises to reimagine the health insurance industry in the country and has the potential to redefine the way health insurance is currently purchased and consumed.
ReAssure 2.0 is an indemnity plan bettering on its 3 benefits, ReAssure, Booster and Safeguard offered under the current ReAssure plan, ReAssure 2.0 provides a ‘plus’ variant of these benefits to offer unmatched benefits.
The four key features under ReAssure 2.0 include ReAssure “Forever” in which the base sum insured will be triggered after the first claim and once triggered it will remain forever. This means that the customer will always have a sum-insured equal to his base sum insured available to him after the customer has made his first claim, that too unlimited times in a policy.
The second feature is Lock the clock in which the age at which the consumer enters the policy gets locked until the customer makes his first claim in the policy. Hence the customer gets to pay the applicable premium as per the entry age, till the first claim comes. After which the regular age band-wise premiums will be paid.
Another feature introduced is the Booster plus benefit which allows the unutilised base sum insured to be carried forward to the next policy year. The sum insured amount will keep on accumulating with each renewal till up to 5X and 10X, depending on whether the customer has opted for the platinum plus or titanium plus variant.
The plan also introduced an optional feature called the Safeguard plus that offers one claim for all non-payable items as per Non-Payables Annexure in addition to safeguarding the Booster+ benefit if the claim in a policy year is up to 1 lakh. This means that in case the claim amount is less than 1 lakh the entire base sum insured will still be carried forward without any deductions to the next policy year.
