Ques: My mother is insured by my company’s group insurance plans and currently she is undergoing cancer treatment. I have to leave my job now to start a new business. Is there any medical insurance plan available to cover her treatment?

It is difficult to obtain a health policy for a person with ongoing cancer treatment. Even fully treated cancer patients are not offered by health insurance providers in India. And, even if you get one for her, you have to waive off the waiting period which will not be waived off by your company’s group health scheme.
