hey... there is an excellent medical insurance scheme in India which is
subsidised by the gavt. it is really amazing that people do not know
much about it.
even i dint know about it... but my in-laws family knew about it and
all of us are insured under that scheme. Well, pls do not think that i
m advertising... but the mediclaim policy from oriental insurance
company is really very good. a lot of operations and the hospital
charges are taken care of directly by the insurance company. u need not
even pay the deposit for the hospital if u getting admitted for a
particular ailment. u can just walk into the hospital with a thing
called 'healthcard' or id card' issued by the insurance company. u can
get all the needed medical care and buy sufficient medicine to get u
out of the illness while u r in the hospital an get discharged. all the
bill settlement is done directly to the hospital by the insurance
well, all my family members who needed any sort of surgery/
hospitialization have been reimbursed of all the medical costs. AND...
it does not cost u a hell lot. it would probably be about 600-700
rupees for a person of about 25-30 years annually...!
