What is top up health insurance policy?

A top-up health insurance is an additional policy to the base standard policy. This policy comes into force only when the hospitalization expenses exceed the threshold limit of the base policy.  This limit is called deductible. A deductible is that portion of the claim amount that is not covered by the insurance company and has to be paid by the insured person/insurance company providing the base cover. For example if the base policy is for Rs 3 lakhs, a top up policy of Rs 10 lakhs means the deductible for the Top up policy is Rs 3 lakhs. In case a hospitalised person claims Rs 10 lakhs, he/she can claim Rs 3 lakhs from base policy and the difference amount of Rs 7 lakhs from top up policy.
