About the Course
An indication of growing maturity of the industry is the upward revision in the premium rates by all players to make up for the high claims ratio, especially in the group health segment, and the double digit medical cost inflation. As a result of better reach and government incentives, the market is dominated by public sector insurers. These companies also hold a major share due to their reach in the rural population, which is about 70% of the country's total population. Considering this factor and the rising support from the regulatory authorities, the private health insurers are also increasingly penetrating the rural segment with the scope of surpassing the public sector companies in the next few years.
At the same time, the overall service levels and customer management standards are improving. The cashless claim facility is making a gradual comeback. The key development this year is going to be the health insurance portability, which is expected to offer more convenience to customers and make the industry more competitive. With more new entrants slated to join the health insurance sector during this year, the market is indeed acquiring more vibrancy.
