1.     Medical Expenses: From doctor consultations to hospitalization, the plan covers a wide range of medical expenses. Whether it’s a minor ailment or a major health issue, you won’t have to worry about the bills.

2.     Dental Care: Dental health is essential, and the plan includes coverage for dental treatments. So, if you need a filling, a root canal, or any other dental procedure, you’re covered.

3.     Visits from Home Doctors: Feeling under the weather? The plan allows for visits from home doctors, ensuring you receive personalized care even when you’re far away from home.

4.     Alternate Medicine Approaches: Sometimes, traditional medicine isn’t the only solution. The plan also covers alternate medicine approaches, such as Ayurveda or acupuncture.
