    • India Inc Provides Medical Coverage to LGBTQ Partners

      Multiple corporates and other companies in India have started to provide medical insurance to people who have same sex partners including for gender reassignment medical procedures. However, multiple organisations still do not offer comprehensive health covers to live in partners or same sex partners, even though there is no such law in place for this.

      Some of the multinational organisations and companies offering health insurance policies to their customers are IBM, conglomerate Godrej Group, hotel chain La-Lit, consultancy Accenture, IT services providers Cognizant and Tech Mahindra. Insurance companies such as Aditya Birla Sun Life Insurance and State Bank of India Life Insurance have both recently stated that they have started offering customised health insurance policies to members of the LGBTQ community. However, there is still some hesitance from the LGBTQ members as purchasing a health insurance policy entails revealing one’s sexual identity and orientation. This is the reason why most members from the LGBTQ community are essentially scared of revealing their own or their partners’ sexual orientation.

      There remains to be a certain section in the Indian society that comprises health insurance companies that do not offer comprehensive health insurance policies to live in partners or partners belonging from the LGBTQ community. There is an increase in the number of insurers offering health plans to this community and ever since the legalisation of homosexuality in India, more and more insurance companies are treading towards this direction.

    • Assessment of the First Phase of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana

      When the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana or Ayushman Bharat was first launched, it carried on its shoulders tremendous pressure to thrive as a comprehensive health insurance scheme. After the completion of the first phase of the project, it can easily be said that this scheme is a game-changer. From a sectoral, segmented, and fragmented system of service delivery to bringing in a more comprehensive approach of providing secondary and tertiary healthcare, Ayushman Bharat indeed has turned all stones in the healthcare sector.

      Within a short span of time, Ayushman Bharat has gained hundreds and thousands of beneficiaries and its coverage has increased by over 300%, much higher than RSBY was able to accomplish. It has been able to provide coverage and financial protection to nearly 50 crore beneficiaries. Moreover, the scheme offers a cover of Rs.5 lakh per family, which is a huge game-changer in the times of increasing medical costs.

      Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana is expected to change the entire mechanism of the healthcare sector while simultaneously defining the new parameters of cost-effective, technology-enabled, and patient centric delivery of healthcare services. The scheme has an efficient monitory mechanism in place which helps them gain the trust of their service providers and ensure that each beneficiary receives the right kind of treatment.
