Whether the treatment for hydrocephalus is covered under Reliance General insurance

 Now, most of us will have floater mediclaim policies, typically offered underemployment. Now, these policies become invalid the very day you’re not an employee of your organization.

So if your company lays you off, there’s a high probability that your family will be without insurance.

Assuming that you have family floater health insurance, it should cover COVID costs, at least partially. The problem with COVID is, it spreads fast. So by the time you realize that you have the disease, you might’ve spread it to 1–2 folks in your family.

What’s the cost of COVID treatment in private hospitals? A single day of ventilator costs Rs.25–35k. Your bill can be anywhere between Rs.2-6 lacs per person. If 3 people in your family get infected, expect a bill upwards of Rs.10 lacs.

It’s definitely a good idea to get a secondary cover for your & your family. Ensure that the waiting period (to get claims is short).

What is Hydrocephalus?

 Hydrocephalus is a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in hollow spaces inside the brain.  These hollow spaces are called ventricles.  A buildup of CSF can put pressure on the brain.

 Treatment for hydrocephalus (hi-drop-SEF-eh-less) can usually reduce the amount of CSF.

 What are the signs and symptoms of hydrocephalus?

 Signs and symptoms of hydrocephalus in infants and children may include:



 poor appetite


 eyes that keep looking down

 slow growth

 Babies under 1 year old still have their “soft spot” because the bones of their skulls have not yet fully developed together.  In them, hydrocephalus usually leads to soft spot bulges, an increase in the size of the head, and large veins in the skull.
