Term of the week: OPD cover

Bavadharini KS | Updated on July 29, 2018 Published on July 29, 2018

Out patient department (OPD) cover is offered as part of health insurance policies.

OPD treatment refers to procedures that do not require a stay in the hospital and are done in the out-patient department.

Apollo Munich and Max Bupa offer cashless OPD facility. However, there are limits to how much of the expense will be covered under OPD in a year. Max Bupa’s Go Active family floater plan offers 10 cashless or reimbursable consultations with a cap of ₹500-600 per consultation. However, compare the policies with and without OPD covers on premium terms to see if they are actually cost-effective.
