HDFC Ergo Health Suraksha is an affordable health insurance plan providing comprehensive healthcare cover for you and your family. The Health Suraksha plan lets policy-holders avail cash-less hospitalization in the extensive 9,000+ hospital network of HDFC Ergo. You can also claim reimbursement for expenses for medical treatments undertaken in non-network hospital. A common misconception among health insurance customers is that minimum 24 hour stay in the hospital is required for availing health insurance cover. HDFC Ergo Health Suraksha plan covers day care procedures also; overnight stay not a pre-requisite.
