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. .
