Presently, BSE Ebix has more than 7,200 registered PoSPs, and is growing daily.

It offers sum insured ranging from minimum of Rs 50,000 to Rs 5,00,000 (in multiples of Rs 50,000) for hospitalization expenses related to Covid-19. The policy covers the cost of PPE kit, gloves, mask and other similar expenses incurred during treatment of Covid-19. The policy also covers ICU and ventilator charges at hospitals. It also provides cover for Home Care Treatment Expenses including cost of Pulse Oximeter and Oxygen cylinder if advised by Medical Practitioner.
