ManipalCigna Health Insurance Company Limited, today announced the introduction of a revolutionary ‘Switch On – Switch Off’ benefit in a new plan. The power to ‘Switch Off’ benefit comes with Advantage and Protect variants of ManipalCigna ProHealth Prime plan that allows policyholders to switch off their health insurance from 2nd year onwards, for up to 30 days while travelling abroad and get discount on renewal premium.
Speaking about the Switch Off benefit, Mr. Prasun Sikdar, Managing Director and CEO, ManipalCigna Health Insurance Company Limited said, “With medical costs increasing, customers are demanding more value out of their health insurance plans. Therefore, as a trusted expert in health insurance, we at ManipalCigna, are committed to bring affordable, predictable and simple health insurance plans to market that can transform the way our customers receive healthcare experience. Thus by putting innovation at the core and keeping our principles in mind, we have now introduced the revolutionary Switch Off benefit option under our ManipalCigna ProHealth Prime plan, in order to help people save the premium amount for maximum period of one month at a stretch in a policy year. The Switch Off benefit is great for people who travel abroad very often, as it could save them money on the premium by opting for this revolutionary benefit.”
For instance, let’s say that the policyholder wants to travel abroad, where the insurance is not applicable. In such a scenario, the person shouldn’t be required to pay the premium because they are not being covered. And now they don’t have to with ManipalCigna ProHealth Prime. They can simply switch off their cover and save money on the next premium.

§ This facility cannot be availed in the last 90 days of the policy year
