For just ₹12,000 - I got a 50 lakh health insurance from ICICI Lombard with all major features.

This is a top secret which no health insurer or financial advisor is telling you about.

A 50 lakh health cover typically costs ₹35-40k from all major health insurers.

🧵👇🏻 Image ICICI Lombard has a health insurance known as Health Shield 360 specially for bancassurance channel.

Now what is bancassurance?

Bancassurance is a partnership between a bank and an insurance company that allows the insurance company to sell its products to the bank's customers.

The premiums for bancassurance policies are much lower than the regular health insurance policies because of the partnership between the bank and the insurance company where the bank is expected to enroll large number of customers for such policies.Image
