Delving Into The Benefits And Limits of The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan

In addition to covering expenses for hospital stays lasting more than 24 hours, which include room, board, nursing charges, medical practitioner fees, prescribed medications, drugs, ICU charges, and related costs, here are some of the other expenses covered under the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan.

  • Pre & Post Hospitalisation Expenses
    Do not stress if the doctor needs to do lots of tests before or after you stay in the hospital as the insurer will take care of such expenses. The plan covers expenses up to the sum insured for a good amount of time - 60 days before you’re admitted to the hospital and 180 days after you leave. Just remember, these expenses are covered by the insurer only if they are related to the medical condition you are hospitalised for, and your claim must be approved as part of inpatient hospitalisation coverage.
  • Daycare Treatment Coverage
    They are medical procedures or surgeries that used to require a long hospital stay but can now be done within a span of 24 hours due to medical advancements. The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan covers all daycare procedures without any limits, under both variants. This means that your expenses will be covered up to the sum insured.
  • Domiciliary Treatment Coverage
    Domiciliary treatments are those medical treatments needed urgently in a hospital but given at home because the patient is too sick or injured to go to a hospital, or because there are no hospital beds nearby. The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan covers domiciliary treatment costs (except for a few listed diseases) up to the sum insured, under both the plan variants.
  • Organ Donor Coverage
    Under both its variants of the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan, the expenses of the organ donor when you are the recipient are covered. It pays for the inpatient costs of the organ donor in case of an organ transplantation, up to the total sum insured you choose for the policy.
  • Modern Treatment Coverage
    Healthcare is advancing fast with new technologies, bringing in treatments that were once thought impossible. The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan keeps up with these changes and covers costs for modern treatments like stem cell therapy, oral chemotherapy, robotic surgeries, etc., with a maximum limit of up to Rs. 1 Crore - under both plan variants.
  • Non-Medical Expenses
    In addition to covering medical costs, the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan also includes coverage for non-medical expenses if you choose the ‘Premium’ variant. Non-medical expenses include the cost of consumables like gloves, nebulization kits, oxygen masks, and other items needed for treatment. These items can be costly and also add up quickly. The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect (Premium) Plan’s Premium variant offers coverage for these expenses up to the total sum insured, easing the financial burden of such costs for you.
  • Cumulative Bonus
    The plan gives you a cumulative bonus of 20% of the sum insured, subject to a maximum of 100% of the expiring or renewed cover amount, whichever is lower. This bonus is to reward you for staying healthy and not making any claims during a policy year. Even if you make a claim, the accumulated bonus will not decrease. This means the bonus you earned before making a claim will stay the same. However, this benefit is not available for those who chose an unlimited sum insured.
  • Reset Benefit (Restoration Benefit)
    The reset benefit is a feature that replenishes your sum insured when it is used up in a policy year. This benefit is triggered when you fully or partially use your annual sum insured, including any cumulative bonus (if any). The reset benefit is applicable for subsequent claims and can be utilised for unrelated illnesses within the same policy year as many times as needed. Additionally, it covers related illnesses and complications, but only after 45 days from discharge.
  • Room Rent Limit
    This is the maximum amount the insurer will pay for the room you stay in during hospitalisation. If the room you choose fits within this limit, you will not have to pay anything extra. But if you go for a room that costs more than what your plan allows,  a proportionate deduction will be applied. This means you'll be responsible for a proportionate share of the total bill, not just the extra room cost. With ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan, you can choose any room except the suite - under both the variants.

Additional Features Of The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan

  • Cashless Facility At Any Hospital
    One standout feature of the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan is its cashless service available at any hospital. This means you can choose any medical facility in India that suits your preferences or healthcare needs. The claim settlement is hassle-free – whether it's a nearby hospital, a specialised centre known for expertise, or one recommended by your doctor. The insurer directly takes care of all covered medical expenses with the healthcare provider. No need to pay upfront or wait for claim refunds. Just keep in mind that this facility is subject to confirmation from the respective hospital.

  • Bariatric Surgery
    The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan covers expenses for bariatric surgery, a procedure to help you lose weight, if it is recommended by your doctor. It covers associated costs up to the sum insured and can be used as many times as needed in a policy year, as long as the sum insured isn't used up. To qualify, you must be at least 18 years old and have completed the applicable waiting period. You should also keep in mind that there may be other conditions related to this coverage.
  • Value-Added Services
    The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan includes coverage for various appealing extra services. You can access health assistance, book emergency ambulances, and enjoy discounts on various medical expenses like investigations, diagnostic tests, lab tests, health supplements, medical equipment, AYUSH products, and more. To benefit from these assistance services, make sure to follow the terms and conditions mentioned in the policy document.
  • Teleconsultation
    In today's digital age, many industries have shifted towards online services, and the medical field is no exception. Teleconsultation is one such outcome. Recognizing the increasing need for remote healthcare, the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan now includes coverage for medical consultations regarding your routine health concerns. You can consult with generalists or specialists through audio, video, online portal, chat, or mobile app, all from the comfort of your home. This service is available day and night throughout the year, and you can access it as many times as needed without any extra charge. All you have to do is book an appointment through the insurer's app to speak or video call a doctor.

Understanding Waiting Periods!

When you invest in a health insurance policy, there is a specific time during which certain illnesses and diseases are not covered, and this time frame is called the waiting period. After this waiting period is over, you can claim for these conditions. There are different types of waiting periods, including –

  • Initial Waiting Period
    For all medical conditions, there is an initial waiting period of 30 days after you get the policy. During this time, you cannot claim for hospitalisation unless it is due to an accident.
  • Waiting Period For Pre-Existing Diseases
    Any medical condition you have in the 48 months before getting the health insurance policy is called a pre-existing disease. With the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan, you will have to serve a 48-month waiting period for pre-existing diseases. But, you have the choice to shorten this duration to 24 months by paying an extra premium. During this waiting period, the policy will not cover any expenses related to your pre-existing diseases.
  • Waiting Period For Specific Diseases
    Insurers have a list of medical conditions or illnesses, different from your pre-existing ones, and these conditions also come with a waiting period. It does not matter if you had these diseases before or not; the waiting period is set by the insurer, and is not based on your current health conditions. The ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan has a 24-month waiting period for specific diseases.


In your health insurance policy, there are certain situations that will not be covered, and these are called exclusions. Some types of exclusions include -

  • Standard Permanent Exclusions: The standard permanent exclusions are set by IRDAI that all insurers must adhere to, and they include –
    • Investigation And Evaluation: Hospital admission only for observation or monitoring.
    • Rest Cure, Rehabilitation, And Respite Care: Admission at a hospital premises for bed rest where no active treatment is given.
    • Obesity/Weight Control: Surgery or treatment for weight control or obesity.
    • Change Of Gender Treatment: Treatments for altering body characteristics to the opposite sex.

    • Maternity Expenses: Childbirth-related hospitalisation expenses, pre/post-natal costs, etc.
  • Additional Permanent Exclusions: Apart from the standard exclusions mentioned earlier, the insurer might add additional exclusions for specific medical conditions or situations. If you have certain diseases or severe medical conditions that the insurer thinks are too risky to provide cover for, they may permanently exclude them from your policy. However, it's essential to know that insurers can only permanently exclude those illnesses that are listed by the IRDAI.
  • Non-standard Exclusions (Specific Exclusions): These exclusions are specific and go beyond the standard ones listed by the IRDAI. They might differ among insurance companies and depend on your policy's terms and conditions. Here are some notable specific exclusions under the ICICI Lombard MaxProtect Plan –
    • Dental treatment expenses, unless it is necessitated by an accident requiring 24 hours of hospitalisation.
