My friend told me to buy health insurance from Star Health Insurance. That helped me during my son’s illness. Their cashless treatment facility was very helpful at the time. I truly appreciate their service and support.
I have been with Star Health Insurance for the past 8 years, and have applied for two claims in that time. Both claims got settled, and I received good support from the company during my hospitalisation.
My family has been with Star Health Insurance since 2006. Our claim, which we applied during last month, was handled without any hassle. We are happy that we are part of such service providers.
Star Health Insurance helped me a lot when I was in need. I was covered under Star’s Comprehensive policy, which provided me cashless treatment at their network hospital during my Angioplasty surgery.
I have been using Mediclaim services for the last 7-8 years. I had tried other companies. But, I satisfied with the service Star Health Insurance has provided me, they also have friendly support personnel.
