'Health Insurance:
Right Diagnosis? Right Prescription?'

Chief Guest and Keynote Speaker: Eknath Shinde
Health Minister, Govt. of Maharashtra

March 1, 2019, C K Nayadu Hall, Cricket Club of India(CCI), Churchgate

National Health Profile 2018 succinctly describes the state of the health insurance industry in India: “Health insurance in India is a growing segment. Yet, it hasn’t taken off fully …”
The huge growth potential that the sector offers has attracted investments not only from existing insurance companies. In fact, some of these companies themselves are setting up specialized health insurance companies. This is being done to focus solely on health insurance business that continues to register highest growth rate among all segments. Investors have also been attracted to this opportunity, as evinced by the number of deals that have taken place in the last year.
At the same time, the “but…” factor brings attention to so much work that needs to be done to realize this potential. Healthcare technology and infrastructure, reliable health data, frauds, special tax incentives being some of the most common issues that beset the industry. Of course, the “trust” factor needs a mention as well. The out of pocket funding of health expenses is estimated to be 80-90%!
Free Press Journal’s conference on health insurance will deliberate on these issues. It will highlight the views of industry experts. These will include people from the insurance sector, financial analysts, representatives of hospitals and other healthcare organisations, and policymakers. They will highlight the current state and chart the future course.
