Though India’s healthcare sector is one of the fastest-growing in the world, lack of availability of medical facilities is still a major concern for the country’s tremendous population. Apart from accessibility, cost is a major deterrent to addressing health issues, both in terms of timely and quality care.
In fact, as per the report by National Survey Office – “Only 19.1% of Indians living in urban India have some form of health insurance or coverage.” This leaves a majority of the population without coverage to tackle health problems and meet the medical costs.
