Health insurance is a form of insurance coverage that provides financial protection and assistance for medical expenses incurred by individuals or groups. It is a contract between an individual or an employer and an insurance company, where the insurer agrees to pay for a portion or all of the covered healthcare services and treatments, in exchange for the payment of regular premiums. Health insurance helps individuals afford the costs associated with medical care, including doctor visits, hospital stays, prescription medications, diagnostic tests, and preventive services. It aims to alleviate the financial burden of healthcare expenses and ensure access to necessary medical treatments.
Global Health Insurance Market Dynamics
- Rising Cost of Medical Services
The rising expenses associated with surgeries, hospital stays, and medical services have resulted in a global financial crisis. In cases of severe illness or accidents, health insurance offers crucial financial assistance. The cost of medical services encompasses various elements, such as surgical expenses, doctor fees, hospitalization costs, emergency room charges, and diagnostic testing fees. This upward trend in medical service costs has consequently fueled the expansion of the health insurance market.
- Increasing Number of Daycare Procedures
Daycare procedures refer to medical procedures or surgeries that involve a shorter hospital stay. Patients undergoing daycare procedures only need to stay in the hospital for a brief period. In recent times, many health insurance companies have started including daycare procedures in their insurance plans. Unlike traditional insurance claims that require a minimum 24-hour hospital stay, policyholders can now claim insurance for daycare procedures without meeting this requirement. This inclusion of daycare procedures in health insurance policies has increased the demand for such coverage and contributed to the growth of the market.
- Advantages of Health Insurance Policies
Health insurance plans provide policyholders with reimbursement for various medical expenses, including hospitalization, surgeries, and treatments related to injuries or illnesses. A health insurance policy represents an agreement between the policyholder and the insurance company. Under this agreement, the insurance company commits to covering the costs of future medical issues, while the policyholder agrees to pay regular premiums according to the chosen insurance plan. The advantages offered by health insurance policies create favorable conditions for the expansion of the global health insurance market, as individuals recognize the value and benefits of securing such coverage.
- Increasing Healthcare Expenditure
Healthcare expenditure worldwide is experiencing rapid growth. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), global spending on health has shown a consistent upward trend. Over the past two decades, health spending has more than doubled, reaching USD 8.5 trillion in 2019, equivalent to 9.8% of global GDP. However, the distribution of health spending is unequal, with high-income countries accounting for approximately 80% of the total expenditure. In low-income countries, healthcare is primarily financed through out-of-pocket spending (44%) and external aid (29%), whereas government spending takes precedence in high-income countries (70%). This increasing healthcare expenditure presents opportunities for the global health insurance market to expand and cater to the growing demand for comprehensive coverage.
- High Cost of Insurance Premiums
Health insurance is designed to cover a wide range of medical treatment costs, providing crucial financial support to policyholders when they require hospitalization. It extends coverage to both pre-hospitalization and post-hospitalization expenses, ensuring comprehensive support throughout the treatment journey. To maintain an active health insurance policy, policyholders are required to pay regular insurance premiums. However, in many cases, the cost of insurance premiums can be high, posing a challenge to the market's growth. The affordability and pricing of insurance plans are important factors to consider in order to address this barrier and foster market expansion.
Lack of Awareness Regarding the Benefits of Health Insurance
A significant portion of the global population lacks awareness about the advantages of health insurance policies in the healthcare sector. As medical expenses rise due to advancements in the field, the healthcare industry is experiencing substantial growth. However, the adoption of health insurance policies remains limited due to a lack of awareness about their benefits. Despite the growth and advancements in healthcare technology, there is a need to increase awareness and understanding among individuals regarding the value and advantages of health insurance coverage.
