The NGSTUP has been introduced giving benefits equivalent to normal Mediclaim but including more features than Super Top Up at reasonable pricing. The main difference between Super Top Up and NGSTUP is that the latter provides a Cumulative Bonus for the claim-free year which enhances the coverage whereas, in the case of the former, the coverage never increases with or without claims in the Policy.. It’s important to understand one can upgrade to this plan from the existing ones in case you already have one. NGSTUP is a complete solution for someone who is looking to buy comprehensive and complete coverage for his family making it a cost-efficient option. It not only gives you a New Generation Mediclaim cover but also gives you OPD cover which could be considered as a refund of the premium since it would have been spent even if you would not have this policy. This means the cost of the premium after the deduction of the return of premium by way of OPD charges would be significantly low with the additional covers of a normal policy. It is advisable to complete the buying of such coverage sooner than later to free yourself and your family of all critical illness worries.
