Why to buy this policy?
A person can consider investing in corona-specific plan for fixed benefits. Such plan helps you to get additional coverage for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits and other consumables required during the treatment of Covid-19, which your base policy may or may not cover. The fixed benefit payout also takes care of incidental expenses. However, for maximum value a comprehensive health insurance plan that protects against a wide range of illnesses including coronavirus, will be more suitable.
