AB Arogyadan – Andhra bank Health Insurance policy

ab arogyadan - andhra bank health insurance policy

AB arogyadan is a health insurance policy offered by Andhra bank to its bank account holders in collaboration with united India Insurance Company limited.

Like the other health insurance policies being offered by nationalized banks, AB arogyadan also has economical premium range, with features more or less similar to the otherwise available mediclaim policies in the market.

The main attraction in this policy is that you can cover your parents along within the same policy. You may also buy the additional cover through super top up plan, to make the total cover adequate for the family.

The other nationalized bank sponsored policies which I have reviewed earlier on this blog are:

AB Arogyadan Review is the new addition to the list. Let’s understand how this policy is beneficial to Andhra bank account holders.

Health Insurance is one of the main areas in any personal financial planning service. In fact it becomes a base before starting with Investments.

AB Arogyadan – in Brief

AB Arogyadan is a group health insurance policy offered by Andhra bank and United India Insurance company limited. This policy is specifically meant for Andhra bank account holders.

In this policy, there are 2 plans. In PLAN A account holders can cover the immediate family (Self, Spouse, and 2 children) and in PLAN B policyholder can add both the parents along with immediate Family. One can also buy a Super top-up plan along with the base policy to increase the total sum assured.

However, there are few Sub-limits specified, which may restrict the overall claim which the policyholder must be aware of.

I really find these policies offered by nationalized banks very attractive with low premiums, comparable benefits, and features.

Added attraction in Andhra Bank arogyadan is the cover for parents. I am sure that you will not get such a high sum assured (Base + Super top up), at such a low premium in any health insurance policy for your parents, if bought from private players in the market.

Yes, there are few restrictions like of room rent limits, on expenses towards major surgeries but that is the kind of cost you have to pay to save on the premium costs.  Moreover, if you have not bought any mediclaim policy till now, just because of the high premiums, then the policies like AB arogyadan gives you the opportunity to cover the risk.

Just keep in mind that andhra bank is only an intermediary and for the service issues you have to directly be in touch with United Insurance people.

  3. Dear Sir,

  4. Dear Mr. Manikaran Singhal,
    I have AB Arogyadan floater policy Plan A for me & my wife. We are joint account holders in Andhra Bank, with me as first holder.

    I want to know , if the policy can be renewed by my wife , if i happen to predecease her ?

    • If you predecease her, then the bank account also be transmitted in her name as a primary holder. So She may, in any case, renew the policy in her name. Still to be better clear on the process, please contact the Insurers.

  5. this plan is for group not for individual. i want individual coverage only does this plan is having? if not can you suggest any other plan

  6. Hello Manikaran Singal sir,
    I took AB Arogyadan policy on my name and i have added my parents also under plan B.
    My parents age is below 60 years. But, in the AB Arogyadan card it is printed 65 and 63 as age.
    Will it be a problem in future while claiming, If age mentioned on the card is wrong or is it fine?

  7. AB Aarogyadaan premium will be deducted on 8th June every year for auto renewal of policy. We admitted on 9th June. Hospital & TPA(GHPL) asked policy renewal deatails which we don’t get till August. It seems you don’t get cashless facility in June and July practically. This year june 9th 10th are holidays. So premium also didn’t deduct. We are facing problem. Can you help on this issue?

    • Well, this is where Insurer should chip in and bankers may mark a lien on the premium amount. Though not sure how this works practically. Since I am replying quite late on this query, so would be great if you share your experience.
