Fairer sex: Are they not getting a fair deal from health insurance companies?

Posted by Aman / on 02/23/2010 / 5 Comments


When the entire country is going through the crisis of a gender inequality, it is hard for any segment to stay unaffected. The fairer sex does not get any special policies, but sometimes it does face discrimination. There seems to be some sort of a notion in people's mind that a man needs to get better coverage than a woman. However, there are no plans which are meant solely for men or only for women. A medical insurance policy tends to offer higher coverage for men than women.

There are two ways to tackle the gender bias problem in India, one is to promote the gender lagging behind by creating reservations and other such ‘encouraging' treatment. The other method is to make health insurance even for everyone. There are several insurance providers which believe that healthcare and treatment is the right of every individual irrespective of their sex. Such companies, like Apollo Munich, are trying to spread equality rather than giving either men or women any kind of preference.

Apollo Munich offers health insurance policies which focus on the needs of their customers regardless of their sex. Their policies are easy-to-buy and understand. The best part is that you can shift from any other company to theirs and still keep your previous insurance provider's accrued benefits.

    Apollo Munich has been fair, they have no discrimination either for men or women. And that is good. I hate the feeling of having to either pay more or less just because i am a girl. Their family plan, which is the plan i am covered with is good, especially its healthline and health risk assessment.

    Absolutely correct. The value of a woman in a family is as much, if not more than men. I have seen that he online health insurance calculator on the website of Apollo Munich gives same coverage for both men and women.
