Health @999, at its low price, offers coverage for hospitalization costs, including inpatient and intensive care hospitalization, day care procedures, ambulance costs and Ayush treatment, among others.

The cashless hospital network for the plan spans 7,600 hospitals nationwide. Health@999 can be used through PhonePe and comes with the Lifetime Renewal feature, the company noted.

“We believe that more than 335 million PhonePe users will greatly benefit from this offer which can be purchased quickly and easily on the PhonePe app,” said Gunjan Ghai, Vice President and Head of Insurance, PhonePe.
