The new plan is available in three levels platinum, gold and silver provides cover for expenses including in-patient treatment, pre-and post-hospitalisation, maternity and childcare benefits. There is no age limit and family members across all age groups are insured with a comprehensive cover ranging from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 50 lakh, depending on age.

Alliance with hospitals

Max Bupa Health Insurance has a direct working relationship with a network of 375 hospitals and healthcare providers and it will service customers directly without third party involvement, through an in-house team of relationship managers. The company also has a 24/7 health line so that customers have easy access to health care.

With a pan India launch in six cities — Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore, the company sees huge potential in India. Talking to Deccan Herald, Max Bupa Health Insurance Chief Executive Damien Marmion said, “India has only 3 per cent penetration of health insurance so we see a tremendous scope here. Also, the youth with a large disposable income comprise a majority of the population. We want to spread the message of  the importance of healthier, more successful lives to them.” The company has invested Rs 151 crore in the venture.
