PhonePe starts Rs 999 health insurance to cater youths
Phonepe health insurance: Digital payments and financial services company PhonePe said on December 2 that it has introduced a new health insurance plan that starts at Rs 999 to cater to young first-time health insurance buyers.
The plan offers coverage for hospitalisation expenses including in-patient and ICU hospitalisation, daycare procedures, ambulance charges, and Ayush treatment among others, and can be availed across 7,600 hospitals in the country.
The pandemic has led Indians to look at health insurance more seriously and there has been a steep rise in online purchase of insurance. To make it easier for young customers to purchase the cover, PhonePe said that it has put in place a three-step process.
Users only need to provide details like name, age, gender, and email ID to buy the policy, eliminating the otherwise cumbersome processes that new and young buyers are deterred by.
Gunjan Ghai, VP and Head of Insurance at PhonePe said, "We believe that 335+ million PhonePe users will greatly benefit from this offering which can be purchased quickly and easily on the PhonePe app. Our offering is designed with the idea that all Indians deserve access to high quality and affordable Health Insurance - irrespective of their income, or education status."
