Notwithstanding the growth in health premiums, insurers have seen elevated levels of Covid claims in the first three months of the financial year due to the second wave of the pandemic.

The Covid-19 pandemic has taught Indians not just the significance of buying but also renewing this policy on time. A recent study by showed that in FY 2021-22, 85 per cent of their customers renewed their family floater policies, and 80 per cent renewed their individual health policies, on time. Furthermore, 60 per cent chose to bolster their coverage with riders.
