Bajaj Allianz Aarogya Sanjeevani Policy
Medical emergencies can come anytime and can affect anyone irrespective of gender, lifestyle, or age. Such an emergency cannot be predicted, so one can never be prepared for it. But a person can ensure at least the financial stability of the family from the unexpected by buying a health insurance plan. Health insurance plan is a contract between the policyholder and the insurance provider. The policyholder pays an insurance amount, and in return, the insurer pays hospitalisation charges and other related medical expenses.
The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) has created a general health insurance plan named as the Aarogya Sanjeevani Plan. After creating general guidelines, the Insurance Authority has asked all insurance companies to create such affordable plans for the masses. So, Bajaj Allianz Health Insurance in compliance with IRDAI, has launched Bajaj Allianz Aarogya Sanjeevani Plan.
