Health is Wealth:
The basis on which a person’s life and activities rest is Health. Being the most important aspect it is the most vulnerable aspect as well and so it should be backed up by good financial planning.
For example, Mr. Shyam Agarwal is a man oriented to the service industry. He meets with an accident which led to the fracture of his leg and some other injuries. He had to be hospitalized and the hospital bill amounted to Rs.109000. He did not know about the situation in advance so had a lot of difficulties in paying the sum at once and did not have a health insurance to support it either.
Here health insurance comes into the picture, it as an insurance which ensures a certain percentage of coverage of medical bills in case of any unforeseen medical circumstances like disease, accident etc. in lieu of which it takes periodical payments called premiums.
