9 Are there any network hospitals that the company has tied up for cancer treatment?

It provides financial protection to your family and can cover expenses like out of pocket medical expenses, out of network specialist, experimental cancer treatment, travel and lodging etc. You are free to seek any type of treatment at a hospital of your choice, including those outside the network.

10 Does the family get any sum assured upon the policyholder's death?

The sum assured is paid to the policyholder upon diagnosis with cancer. Cancer plans aim to help offset the expenses that incur while battling the critical disease like cancer. Therefore, the payout is linked to diagnosis of disease and no death benefits is payable.

11 How long does it take to get the reimbursement?

As cancer plan doesn’t pay for hospitalisation expenses, you don’t have to submit any bills to proceed a claim. The policyholder will get a lump sum upon diagnosis of cancer and needs to produce medical records of the same to receive the payout.
