Sweet is Not So Sweet-Diabetes can assume frightening proportions if it remains uncontrolled. Living with Diabetes can sometimes feel lonely and bitter but it does not have to be that way anymore. Earlier, it was difficult for patients suffering from Diabetes to get a cover, however, with a new generation plan, the much-needed coverage is now available to Diabetic patients. If you keep your sugar levels under control, insurance companies also give you many incentives in Diabetic plans.
India is the second-largest country in the world with a Diabetic population. However, the awareness of the disease and its management is very poor in our country. Diabetes can assume frightening proportions if it remains uncontrolled. Diabetic patients in the older regime used to find it difficult to get a policy from any insurance company, but not anymore. Health insurance companies have come out with special Diabetic plans where Type 1 and Type 2 patients, especially those taking Insulin can get Mediclaim Cover. Though the plan is slightly more expensive than the normal plans, it is better to be covered rather than remain uncovered.
