Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101985 | Status : Ongoing



Health insurance is a type of insurance that provides coverage for a person’s healthcare expenses. The rising prevalence of chronic illness and their treatment poses a financial burden on the individual and the country. The increasing healthcare expenses, including bed charges, cost of hospitalization and pharmacy, and consultation charges burn a hole in the patient’s pocket. Health reimbursement can thus help reduce the out of pocket expenses. This the major reason for the increasing demand for health insurance. Even the government of various countries are coming with schemes and policies that cover more and more beneficiaries at a lower premium. The health insurance industry is witnessing a major boom as it has increased the affordability of people for quality healthcare. With the provision of cashless hospitalizations and an increase in network hospitals, patients can avail healthcare services even at the time of emergency.
