According to World Bank Report
  • Some relevant studies reveal :
  • 85 % of the working population in India DO NOT have Rs. 5,00,000 as instant cash.
  • 14 % have Rs. 5,00,000 instantly BUT will subsequently will face a financial crunch
  • Only 1% can afford to spend Rs. 5,00,000 instantly and easily.
  • 99 % of Indians will face financial crunch in case of any critical illness. Hence the need for Health Insurance.
Let us look at what it costs in a good/ reputed hospital for treatment of
Angioplasty Rs. 1,20,000 to Rs. 3,00,000
Open heart surgery Rs. 2,50,000 to Rs. 4,50,000
Liver Transplant Rs. 30,00,000
Kidney Transplant Rs. 18,00,000 to Rs. 30,00,000
Hernia surgery Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 60,000
Cancer-Chemotherapy - Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 30,000 per visit and number of visits may be 4 to 28, which means that cost can be as high as Rs. 8,40,000. It is realized that only Health insurance policy taken by a person can take care of hospitalization costs of this magnitude. This cost is over and above surgery, which may be required.
Who does not need Health insurance:
  • A person who is covered by his employer or is governed under some corporate rules for payment/reimbursement of Hospitalization costs need not go in for Health Insurance.
  • A person who has no financial liquidity issue and who can make immediate payment of hospital bills of the order of Rs. 1,00,000 or 2,00,000 or even Rs. 5,00,000 need not go in for health insurance. In this case he is indirectly doing self-insurance which in simple terms means that he will be making the payment himself as and when the need arises.
  • It means that all others should go in for Health insurance so that, as and when they need hospitalization Health Insurance will take care of the same.
  • It means that by buying this Insurance one is buying peace of mind for the day, when one may need hospitalization
