Hi
A general mediclaim insurance policy in India does not cover maternity. Very few health insurance providers in India offer maternity benefits with mediclaim policies. I have a medical insurance policy from Max Bupa which offer maternity benefit and new born baby cover along with other features and benefits. Visit MaxBupa.com for more information on the same.

There are some insurance policies that covers maternity expenses like : Apollo Munich Health Insurance (earlier Apollo DKV) Normal Delivery Rs. 15,000 and Caesarean Delivery Rs. 25,000.
Oriental Universal Health Insurance : Normal Delivery Rs. 2,500 and Caesarean Delivery Rs. 5,000
