Remedinet Technologies, India’s first completely electronic cashless health insurance claims processing network, has been signed on as the technology partner for Karnataka Police’s ‘Arogya Bhagya Yojane (ABY)’ health insurance scheme. Initiated in 2002, this scheme aims at cashless hospitalization under authorization from the department to all serving police personnel, their families, and dependent parents at empaneled hospitals across the state. The scheme is now powered by the Remedinet payer-provider digital network, fully geared towards making this process hassle free for all non-gazetted and gazetted officers.
Remedinet would facilitate capturing and exchange of relevant claim settlement data, in a structured and electronically readable format. This process is currently manual, error prone and time consuming. By eliminating inaccuracies in the data exchange process, Remedinet solutions would make the claim settlement process faster, accurate and hassle free for the end beneficiaries. As the technology partner, Remedinet would enable various participants in the claim settlement process to monitor the progress, thereby bringing in more transparency.
Munish Daga, CEO, Remedinet Technologies said, “Our association with the Karnataka Police for their ‘Arogya Bhagya Yojane’ scheme is indeed a proud moment for us. To make the government healthcare schemes beneficial for the target group, it is imperative to embrace latest technology. Our aim is to bring seamless customer experience through adoption of latest technology in the Indian health insurance sector. The scheme brings convenience and stability to an important section of our civic society and we are happy to contribute our bit in facilitating adoption of latest technology in the Indian health insurance sector. We have grown to cover more than 75000 personnel and have a hospital network of about 150 hospitals. We are confident that our expertise will make us the ideal partner for the Arogya Bhagya Yojane scheme.”
The Remedinet platform has been instrumental in laying the requisite groundwork and making government healthcare schemes beneficial for the target groups in other states. The seamless experience through the stages of pre-authorization, pre-discharge (final approval) and claim submission, aim at reducing the turn-around time and enhancing productivity of various participants in the health insurance claim settlement process.

Despite the technological evolution of the healthcare sector over the past two decades, health insurance in India continues to grapple with the same difficulties such as lack of adoption and complex utilisation. As a result, the adoption numbers struggle to make it past a disappointing percentage figure in a country with the second largest population in the world. On the flip side, the situation in which the health insurance industry currently finds itself, also presents tremendous opportunities to evolve, possibility to scale, and scope to become profitable. The emergency of the situation, in several cases has not only served as a business opportunity, but also led to the adoption of digital frameworks as foundational pillars that ensure last mile delivery of health insurance for the policyholder.

India, a massive country with a population of 1.2 billion (source: wikipedia.com) stands on the historically rich soil where Ayurveda was born and surgery techniques once flourished. It is ironic how its people are perishing in the absence of the same healthcare services in the present era. Innovations in science and technology have certainly improved the very field of healthcare but at the same time, have done little to nothing for the masses at large. A major part of the population does not have access to basic healthcare services while, the benefits of the innovations are enjoyed by the ones with deep pockets only. For around 70% (source: world Bank) of the population living in the rural areas, the healthcare facilities are in a dismal condition. The inadequate number of Public Healthcare Centres adds further to the woes. .
