Market Definition

Health insurance is a type of insurance that provides coverage for all kinds of surgical expenses as well as medical treatment incurred from an illness or injury. It applies to a comprehensive or limited range of medical services providing the coverage of full or partial costs of specific services. It provides financial support to the policyholder as it covers all the medical expenses when the policyholder is hospitalized for treatment. It also covers pre as well as post-hospitalization expenses.

In the health insurance plan, several types of coverage are available, which is cashless or reimbursement claim. The cashless benefit is available when the policyholder takes treatment from the network hospitals of the insurance company. If the policyholder takes treatment from hospitals that are not in the list network, in that case, the policyholder meets all the medical expenses and then claims the reimbursement from the insurance company by submitting all the medical bills.
