5. What is the impact of a “suicide clause” on medical/health insurance if the policyholder has tried to commit suicide, but only injured himself?

In the case of medical/health insurance, as discussed under the subject of the "exclusion" clause, suicide and self-inflicted injury are excluded from the coverage. Therefore, where the insured person has committed suicide or has injured himself in the course of attempting to commit suicide, a claim for insurance under the policy would not be accepted.
