Brief Overview - Max Bupa CritiCare Insurance Plan

Mohit worked as a Senior Manager in a well-known IT company. He was married to Usha, who ran a small boutique. A few weeks after their son Kunal’s sixth birthday, Mohit started to feel very uncomfortable and often had a severe stomach ache. He went to a doctor and after a series of costly investigations, it was diagnosed that Mohit was suffering from acute kidney failure. Mohit had saved a little, most of which has now been spent. His condition worsened and he lost his job. Usha had to look after her husband, and couldn’t manage the boutique, which is now nearing a shut-down. Mohit’s parents, who are now retired, have been trying hard to raise funds for his future treatment. 

Unlike common health issues and problems that make you unwell for a while, a critical illness can have a debilitating effect on your otherwise smooth and peaceful life. Such an illness can not only affect your daily routine but also be terminal and fatal. When someone suffers from a critical illness it is common that their lives come crashing down. A terminal illness can affect a person far beyond the apparent costs and conditions. Some diseases can leave a person unable to work just like Mohit who lost his job, while some diseases might even cause partial or total disability.

With the changing lifestyle in today’s world, critical illnesses are on a rise and it is common to see people suffering from one. The high-cost treatments make it all the more difficult for the common man to be able to afford the medical care required.
