After Suing Insurance Firm Cancer Patient Wins ₹6.7 Lakhs

A 60-year-old Bengaluru cancer patient won Rs 6.7 lakhs after he sued a private insurance firm for denying him medical insurance for his cancer treatment on grounds that he previously had hypertension and diabetes, which he previously not disclosed prior to taking the policy.

In the court battle that lasted practically eight months, judges reprimanded the private firm, called Religare Health Insurance Company, and said that hypertension and diabetes are not diseases but common physical disorders and that they can not be grounds to deny medical care insurance.

The court added that the insurance is the patient’s legitimate case and that Religare, for this situation, showed no worry for a ailing patient who paid his installment on time as a general rule.
