India is the only country where hospitalization insurance policy was being sold as Mediclaim Insurance Policies. The very name gives a feeling to the insured that claim has to be lodged. If motor insurance policy is not sold as motor insurance claim policy and household insurance policy is not sold as household claim policy, then why this be named as Mediclaim?
Since 2002 the trend has emerged that some Insurance companies have started calling this product as Health Insurance and in 2023 we find it is the common nomenclature for this insurance.
Health Insurance and Mediclaim are two different names for the same product. The change has started coming and now we have started calling it Health Insurance. ICICI Lombard has even named it as Health Insurance Policy.
Calling is as Health Insurance is a positive way of looking at this Insurance. It also giving us a feeling that we as a society have started moving from curative medical care to preventive medical care.
According to sources in Oriental insurance it is being felt that mindset has started changing over the last couple of years “ The new middle- class of India aspires for quality healthcare service and doesn’t mind going to expensive hospitals like Apollo or Escorts. There is no reason why healthcare insurance should not be successful with this class.
