    Insurance providers today are looking at non-earning women and homemakers as a potential source of business, by designing insurance policies that are specific to their needs.

    Traditionally, insurance is designed to help a person’s dependants out of a financial crunch, once the earner is rendered incapable of earning. The coverage and the sum assured, etc. are designed to ease the financial burden that a family faces when the sole earner is out of the picture. But there is an intrinsic value to the homemaker’s contribution to the household, even though it isn’t purely financial.

    There are quite a few online health insurance plans out there that cater to women-specific illnesses and medical conditions, but not all of them can be trusted just on the “women-specific” tag they carry. As with any insurance policy, the terms and conditions, clauses, coverage, benefits, and exceptions must be carefully considered.

    Here are a few of the top women-specific insurance products on the market today:

    1.Bajaj Allianz Women Specific Critical Illness Insurance:

    3. Uterine/Cervical Cancer.
    4. Ovarian Cancer.
    5. Vaginal Cancer.
    6. Permanent paralysis of limbs.
    7. Multitrauma.
    8. Burns.

    Congenital Disability benefit covers the first two children. It gives 50% of the sum insured if the insured person gives birth to a baby that has any of the following congenital diseases/disorders:

    1. Down’s syndrome.
    2. Congenital cyanotic heart disease:
      • Tetrology of Fallot.
      • Transportation of Great Vessels.
      • Total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage.
      • Truncus Arteriosus.
      • Tricuspid Artesia.

    3. Tracheo-esophageal fistula.
    4. Cleft palate with or without cleft lip.
    5. Spina bifida.

    There’s also a Children’s Education Bonus, where if the claim has been paid under the policy, Bajal Allianz will also pay Rs. 25,000 totally towards the education of one or both children (maximum of two).

    In addition, there’s a clause protecting the insured woman in case she loses her job - If the insured person loses her job within 3 months of being diagnosed, Bajaj Allianz will pay Rs. 25,000 towards “loss of employment”.
