This benefit comes to save the day by providing coverage for economy-class air ticket or railway ticket (first-class) to allow a family member to be at the insured's side during his stay at the hospital. This benefit also has a separate limit and does not influence the cumulative bonus.

  • Cumulative Bonus

A cumulative bonus is generally a form of reward for the insured person for being fit and not filing a claim. The benefit of the bonus is granted in the year of renewal by making an increase in the amount of sum insured. Under this policy, about 10% Cumulative Bonus shall be applied to the sum insured for the next policy year following every claim-free policy year.
