Is Dengue covered under health insurance policy

I am not sure if my health insurance policy covers dengue. Should I buy a new one?

Ideally, dengue fever is covered in most hospitalization policies,unless it has been specifically excluded.

I think you should once read your policy document. Usually any standard health policy provides full coverage for dengue along with pre and post hospitalisation expenses.

There are very less policy which offer specific coverage for dengue fever. You need to take add-on coverage for dengue coverage if it is excluded under your health insurance policy.
