Healthcare is one aspect that is mostly under-utilized in most parts of India. Even today, many individuals are quite averse to visiting doctors for a regular check-up, and a large portion of this reluctance is due to the out-of-the-pocket medical expenditure.

Moreover, if a mediclaim policy also offers life coverage, the incentive and willingness to purchase increases manifold. The PNB MetLife combi plan – Mera Mediclaim Plan, is one such policy that can provide you with some unique combination benefits that are absent in most other health insurance plans or mediclaim policies. But before getting into the benefits, let us explore the combinations aspects of the plan.
Unique Aspects of Mera Mediclaim Plan
The PNB MetLife combi plan offers health insurance coupled with a complete life insurance package. The term for life cover starts from 10 years and can go up to a maximum of 40 years. In addition, it has a minimum age of sum assured of ₹25 lakhs with a maximum maturity age up to 80 years. Furthermore, this life cover is made more attractive because this comes with a lifelong health insurance portion renewal benefit.
The basic sum assured for the health cover ranges from ₹5 lakhs to ₹15 lakhs depending on the type of plan. In addition, the maximum age for entry is 65 years, which is same for both medical and life insurance. The best part of Mera Mediclaim Plan is its lifelong continuous renewal option for the health portion. This renewal option provides for a constant financial cover in case of any health crisis that may emerge in your life.
