This cover has been built under the health insurance product Digit Health Care Plus and filed under IRDAI's sandbox regulations where products can be tested on a pilot basis for six months. "We are offering this as a flat benefit cushion cover, for both positive & quarantined cases. While for positive cases we pay 100 percent, a total of 50 percent of the sum insured is paid for quarantined cases so that even in the smallest way possible, it compensates for the loss of income during this period."
