Health Credit Card For Medical Emergency

Life is uncertain and you never know what happens tomorrow. People who are healthy today might fall ill tomorrow. In such a situation, it is very difficult to meet medical expenses. Medical expenses are rising each day and can burn a hole in your pocket. When people do not have money to meet medical expenses; they may avail a personal loan which has very high interest rates.

Availing personal loan to meet medical expenses is not a good idea; as you bear not just a high rate of interest; there’s medical expenses to worry about. Now; there is a new option to offer financial aid during a medical emergency. It is a health credit card which helps you meet the medical expenses; just by swiping the card. RBL Bank and India's leading digital healthcare platform, Practo, have joined together to offer a health-focused credit card – RBL Bank Practo Plus. This is the first credit card in the healthcare industry. It is powered by Mastercard and available in both Practo and RBL mobile apps and websites.

You can apply for Health Credit Card directly through the Practo app or RBL bank website. This card offers services in both metros and non-metro cities, across India. The annual charges on this card are Rs 2,000.
