Health Insurance for Kidney Cyst


Health insurance policies may differ in terms of the coverage, benefits, premiums, co-payments, deductibles, exclusions, and limitations.


The kidneys can develop spherical fluid-filled pockets called kidney cysts. In accordance with their size, form, and contents, they might be straightforward or complex. Simple kidney cysts are usually harmless and do not affect the kidney function.


Complex kidney cysts may have a higher risk of being cancerous or causing complications such as infection, bleeding or blockage of urine flow.


Kidney cysts are more common in older people and men. They may not cause any symptoms, but if they grow large or become infected, they may cause pain, fever, blood in urine or swelling of the abdomen.


The treatment for kidney cysts depends on the type, size, and symptoms of the cysts. Some cysts may not require any treatment, while others may need to be drained or surgically removed.


The cost of treating kidney cysts in India may vary depending on the type of treatment, the hospital and the city.


The average cost of removing a kidney cyst using laparoscopy is around Rs. 75,000 to Rs. 1.5 lakh.


In India, there are many health insurance companies that offer various types of health insurance plans for individuals and families. Some of these plans may cover critical illnesses such as kidney failure, which is a condition where the kidneys stop working and require dialysis or transplantation.


Therefore, before purchasing a health insurance plan, it is crucial to read the policy paperwork thoroughly and comprehend the terms and circumstances.


Some of the factors that one should consider while choosing a health insurance plan for kidney cysts are:


The coverage: The plan should cover the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for kidney cysts. It should also cover the hospitalization charges, doctor's fees, medicines, tests and procedures related to kidney cysts.


The benefits: The plan should offer adequate sum insured (the maximum amount that the insurer will pay for a claim) and cashless facility (the option to get treated at a network hospital without paying anything upfront).


It should also offer other benefits such as free health check-ups, no claim bonus (a reward for not making any claim in a policy year), and lifetime renewability (the option to renew the policy without any age limit or medical check-up).


The premiums: The plan should have affordable premiums (the amount that one has to pay periodically to keep the policy active) and flexible payment options (such as monthly, quarterly, or yearly). The premiums may depend on factors such as age, gender, health status, pre-existing diseases, family history, and lifestyle habits.


The co-payments: The plan should have low or no co-payments (the percentage of the claim amount that one has to pay from one's own pocket). Co-payments may reduce the premium amount but increase the out-of-pocket expenses.


The deductibles: The plan should have low or no deductibles (the amount that one has to pay before the insurer starts paying for a claim). Deductibles may also reduce the premium amount but increase the out-of-pocket expenses.


The exclusions: The plan should have minimal or no exclusions (the situations or conditions that are not covered by the policy). Some common exclusions are pre-existing diseases (the diseases that one has before buying the policy), waiting period (the time period during which no claim is payable), sub-limits (the maximum amount that the insurer will pay for a specific expense) and alternative treatments (such as Ayurveda, Homeopathy, or Unani).


The limitations: The plan should have minimal or no limitations (the restrictions or conditions that apply to the policy). Some common limitations are room rent capping (the maximum amount that the insurer will pay for a hospital room), co-morbidity clause (the clause that reduces the sum insured if one has more than one disease) and network hospitals (the hospitals that have an agreement with the insurer to provide cashless facility).




To conclude, health insurance for kidney cysts in India is not very common but not impossible to find. One has to do some research and compare different plans from different insurers to find the best one that suits one's needs and budget. Health insurance can help one cope with the medical expenses and the emotional stress of having kidney cysts.
