One of the fastest-growing service sectors in the country is the health insurance sector. India has been witnessing an overwhelming response in the health insurance sector for the past few years. Yet, making health insurance affordable and accessible in India is still a big challenge for the health insurance sector, as there is a very large section of the population that has not opted for a health insurance policy.
Our country faces a tough challenge of the ever-rising cost of medical treatments and healthcare services. Indians spend a big chunk of their total annual expenditure/savings on hospital care. This results in taking drastic measures by the population in rural India, as they end up borrowing heavily or selling their assets to cover medical expenses. The escalating cost of medicine and medical treatments eventually contributes to the cause for indebtedness amongst the poor and middle class.
In India, the healthcare expenditures are largely paid out-of-pocket as the budget allocated to the health sector remains inadequate and low. Though, efforts are being made in expanding the reach of health insurance coverage as one means of addressing health disparity and reducing catastrophic health costs.
