A master check is not only beneficial in preventing a serious medical condition but also in understanding your body so that you can take better care of it. A master check is tailored based on factors such as age, gender and medical history. Generally, diagnostic tests such as BMI, hemoglobin, blood test, cancer, urine analysis, ECG, blood pressure, diabetes, vision and hearing, CT Scans are conducted during a master check.

Early detection – A master check helps identify any signs of a chronic disease early on. Earlier the detection, easier is the treatment or prevention measures. Early detection also helps in curing the disease completely.

Wake-up call – A master check very often serves as a wake-up call. We tend to take our health for granted and neglect our body, this is especially true of ageing issues. A master check puts us back on track and we adopt certain changes to ensure good healthy lifestyle and a well taken care of body.

Warning signs for inherited health issues – A master check considers family history and conducts specific tests to identify them. Discovering warning signs at an early stage helps in combating the disease more effectively.

An investment with good returns – A regular master check actually turns out to be a wise decision, as detecting and treating a disease early goes a long way in saving time, energy, effort and money.

Encouraged and rewarded – Master checkups are highly encouraged by corporates, insurance companies and tax officials. Most companies reimburse their employees for master checks in part or full at least once a year. Many insurance companies also cover the cost of annual master health checks. Tax benefits for many checkups can be availed under Income Tax Act 80D.
