Can I claim for Morbid Obesity treatment from my existing health insurance policy?

Morbid obesity is covered in existing health insurance from October 1. Can I get surgery done and claim the cost from my insurance policy. I have a health insurance from Royal Sundaram
The revised definition of the Obesity/Weight Control exclusion will be effective on all existing and new policies from tomorrow onwards.
As per this definition, treatment that meet the following conditions will be covered going forward:
Would recommend you show this note, to the doctor who has recommended/advised the obesity surgery - he should be able to let you know if the treatment can get paid or not.
Hope this helps. Do let us know if you have any follow up questions.
