Health Plan:

Family Floater Health Insurance Family Floater Health Insurance from ICICI Lombard offers you the best of both world’s by taking care of your family’s health while helping you save on your taxable income.

Secure your family against financial emergencies during sudden illness, surgery and accidents as well as against terrorist activities. Family Floater Health Insurance plan lets you share the entire sum insured among the family members covered under the policy, without any individual upper limits. Example: The Prakash Family is covered under a traditional health insurance plan with individual policies, of which Mr. Prakash is separately covered for 2 Lakhs, his wife for 1 Lakh, their son and daughter for 50,000 each. They have paid premium for all these four policies separately. In an

unforeseen situation, wherein surgery and post hospitalisation bill of their son amounts to 1.30 Lakhs, the existing policy will cover only 50,000, while Mr. Prakash will have to bear the balance 80,000 from his pocket. However, with Family Floater Health Insurance plan, each member of the Prakash family can utilize the entire sum insured of 4 Lakhs. Thus in the above situation, Family Floater would have covered the entire amount of 1.30 Lakhs of medical expenses of his son.

Travel Insurance - A must have companion for every trip, Choose Wisely Travel insurance is something you should never forget whenever planning an overseas trip. It is essential because it covers you against medical and other financial emergencies that may incur during your travel. While a low cost policy does cover the basics, it usually does not cover all matters of emergencies. Travel insurance is one area where it is not advisable to buy the cheapest policy. Always do a little research to determine the levels of cover offered with the policy. What you should expect Typical services offered by travel insurance providers are, emergency repatriation and/or evacuation, medical expenses incurred while travelling, personal accident cover, travel cancellation and delay, theft, checked-in baggage loss and delay, loss of passport, missed connection and personal liability coverage .Always play safe Remember that this could happen to anyone, no matter what your age or current health. A simple accident or a terrible stomach upset due to foreign food can result in the need for this kind of emergency care. Travel medical insurance coverage will either pay for your treatment at the nearest medical facility, or allow you to choose the medical hospital or clinic where you want to avail of the required treatment.

.Travel Worry-free If you think travel insurance is not necessary because you plan to spend all your time just vacationing and sight seeing, think again. If necessary, pay a little more for adequate insurance and buy yourself not just peace of mind, but a whole lot more cover where you may need it most. Travel Insurance is designed to protect your health, belongings, and your financial investment in your trip, for you and your family.

Sum Insured

All vehicles are insured at a fixed value called the Insured’s Declared Value (IDV). IDV is calculated on the basis of the manufacturer’s listed selling price of the vehicle (plus the listed price of any accessories) after deducting the depreciation for every year as per the schedule provided by the Indian Motor Tariff.

If the price of any electrical and / or electronic item installed in the vehicle is not included in the manufacturer’s listed selling price, then the actual value (after depreciation) of this item can be added to the sum insured over and above the IDV.

In case of vehicles fitted with bi-fuel system such as Petrol/ Diesel and CNG/ LPG, permitted by the concerned RTO, the CNG/LPG kit fitted to the vehicle is to be insured separately at an additional premium of 4% on the value of such kit. You need to specifically declare this in the proposal form.
