Moms are superwomen, the mistresses of multi-tasking. But do we ever take a moment to think of ourselves, particularly our health? There was a time in my life when I let myself completely go as I was too exhausted just trying to manage my kids, my home and our lives but then I realised how unhappy I was. When my mother-in-law passed away with breast cancer, it was a wake-up call for all of us. I needed to take care of myself and the only could I cope with my families demands.
That sudden drop of breath or that unprecedented exhaustion that a woman experiences mostly goes ignored. Many of us, are also a victim of chronic conditions like Asthma and Diabetes – and needless to say, we often miss out consistently on caring and treating ourselves and this could lead to dire consequences
Let’s face it, chronic problems are called so for a reason – if you keep ignoring the symptoms of your cholesterol increasing, you could end up getting gallstones or even a stroke. Taking your medications on time, maintaining appropriate food habits and adequate physical activity are the keys to a healthier life and it is time you stop putting your chronic conditions on the line.

Besides the fact that we are all enveloped in a heady lifestyle with little time to look after our health, another factor that affects us is the timely recovery of health benefits from health cover plans. To be honest, treating chronic diseases can be expensive – anyone who has been on diabetes medicines or asthma treatments are aware of the soaring costs, as well as the idea of time surrounding medical health covers. It usually takes a while to process your treatment records to incur the returns and none of them includes a consistent management program that can help you keep your chronic conditions in control.
The answer to these major concerns is the Aditya Birla Activ Health Policy and their Chronic Management Program – which covers chronic illnesses from Day 1 and also helps you stay active and healthy. The Chronic Management Program covers the costs of major illnesses like Asthma, High Cholesterol, High Blood Sugar and Diabetes; while the Policy in itself acts as an incentive for you to stay fit.
The Chronic Management Program consistently covers a whole range of medical expenses – and incidentally, you do not have to wait for it – which is the case with many health policies. It offers multiple benefits, covering expenses like:
● Medical consultation
● Diagnostic tests
● Medicines and Hospitalization
Additionally, it also helps you earn HealthReturns™ which are, very simply, financial benefits you can earn out of staying healthy, which in turn can be used to pay for your various health expenses as well as pay your monthly policy premiums.
The Program involves a six-step process to get started with, involving:
– Declaring your condition
– Getting covered
– Seeing a doctor
– Taking the prescribed tests
– Taking the prescribed medicine
– Starting to get active
It offers you specialist doctors as Wellness Coaches who help you stay on track with your fitness and treatment protocols. Consultations, a range of diagnostic tests, physiotherapy and a whole of benefits are included under the program. The Activ Health app, too, is an additional help for people to maintain their active routines. Especially for people who easily get carried away by day-to-day activities, the Activ Health app is a blessing in disguise – helping us track our fitness activity, view the HealthReturns™ balance, keep a record of our medical history manage your policy as well as search for healthcare networks and doctors in your area.
How does it helps us stay fit in all this? The answer to healthy living is their concept of Activ Dayz™. Activ Dayz can be earned by burning calories, exercising and more.
Completing 13 Activ Dayz can help you earn up to 30% of your annual premium policy as HealthReturns™ – a guaranteed way to make you stay fit and also, save your medical expenses.
Whether you are affected by any illness or not, the policy – based on the ideal of ‘prevention is better than cure’ – acts as a constant motivation for you and your family to stay healthy. And if you are part of the Chronic Management Program, you know you are covered without having to wait for your returns to cover the treatment expenses – no matter what stage of the problem you are facing. Good health is a sure-shot way to happiness, and as they say – a happy mum ensures a happy home.
