Why need for Specialized Seminar Insurance the Savior in Healthcare, The Horizon and Best Practices?
Healthcare has evolved over the last 2 decades as one of India’s largest sectors - both in terms of revenue and employment. The Indian healthcare sector is growing at a brisk pace due to its strengthening coverage, services and increasing expenditure by public as well private players.
The overall Indian healthcare market is worth around Rs 6,50,000 Crores and is expected to grow to Rs 19,00,000 Crores by 2020, a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22.9 per cent. Health Insurance is a crucial instrument that provides financial security in times of need. Thus, whether an emergency or a planned hospitalization, a health insurance policy ensures umbrella coverage by helping to pay for the covered medical expenses in case of hospitalization due to illness or injury. Health insurance plans not only safeguard finance but also provide tax benefits. Greater access to health insurance improves health and better health leads to economic growth.
However, there is very low health insurance coverage in the country. About 30 Crores people or 25% of India’s population is covered with some form of health insurance, according to the World Bank. The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India, meanwhile, claims that only 17% of the population has some form of insurance coverage.
Health insurance is an important factor to make healthcare reachable to all. Innovation in health coverage product is required to enhance the healthcare services.
