Difficult to get health insurance cover for Type 1 diabetes

No, you are not required to buy a top-up plan from the insurer of your base health insurance plan. With the same insurer, it may make sense to buy a larger sum assured in the base plan itself. The choice of insurer for your top-up insurance should be made independent of your base plan.

Top-up plans offer cashless facility. If your medical expenses exceed the deductible amount, then you can apply for cashless settlement in a top-up plan. You will need to provide evidence of the medical costs already incurred. This could be in the form of actual hospital bills paid or details of insurance settlement done within your base policy. It is difficult to combine two cashless claims for a single hospitalisation bill. This is because the top-up insurance will require a copy of the claim settlement letter for the base insurance. This sequencing makes it administratively difficult for two insurers to offer cashless claims for the same hospitalisation. In such cases, you should opt for a reimbursement claim in your top-up plan.
