For basic plans there is 6 months waiting period on Pre-Existing and Chronic conditions, which means that for the first six months of the policy client can’t take any treatment pertaining to Pre-Existing and Chronic Problems.

The number of times these services can be performed and/or the maximum covered amount will be restricted to certain limits as mentioned in the policy terms.
Referral procedure means that you need to first consult a General Practitioner (GP) licensed by the Ministry of Health to cover the consultation of any specialist/consultant doctor in the Policy.
