Health Insurance - Overview

The term health insurance, also referred to as medical insurance or Mediclaim, refers to a type of insurance that covers the insured's medical expenses. In simple words, the purpose of health insurance is to cover people's medical bills and expenses during an illness or course of medical treatment. These services generally cover hospital bills, including hospitalization expenses, daycare procedures, ICU charges, critical illness benefits, etc. Additionally, a health insurance policy serves as a contract between an insurance company and a policyholder that is renewed annually.

Europe Health Insurance Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Prevalence of Chronic and Other Medical Conditions

Individual healthcare expenditures are rising as the burden of various medical problems and chronic diseases grows. As a result, consumers are increasingly relying on health insurance to cover their hospital bills and other medical expenses. Furthermore, health insurance offers lifetime plans that cover chronic conditions like cancer and diabetes and serve as a support system during treatment. Most health insurance policies also cover the continuation of therapy.

Favorable Government Policies and Initiatives

The favorable and stringent government regulations regarding health insurance in Europe act as a major driving factor for the market growth. Taking health insurance is mandatory in almost all countries in Europe. Countries like Germany, France, Switzerland, etc., make health insurance mandatory by law. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, around 88% of all inpatient costs are borne by government or compulsory insurance schemes.

Restraints

Complications in Claiming Reimbursements

Many insurance claim denials have made the general public wary of purchasing health insurance. The low number of health insurance plans in developing economies is due to a lack of compensation at the point of need. Insurance companies frequently fail to compensate correctly for a variety of reasons, including a lack of documentation or a misunderstanding of insurance coverage. Furthermore, the general public views insurance as a ruse, particularly in emerging and poor nations, limiting its market expansion.

Impact of COVID-19 on Europe Health Insurance Market

Following the unusual outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health insurance industry saw a considerable increase. As the number of COVID-19 patients expanded across the European countries, so did their healthcare expenditures. Many health insurance firms have developed Coronavirus Health Insurance coverage to cover the medical expenditures of COVID-19 patients. This sort of policy covers not just COVID-19-related hospitalization expenditures, but also those associated with nearly any form of viral infection.

Europe Health Insurance Market - By Type of Insurance Provider

Based on the type of insurance provider, the Europe health insurance market is segmented into public, private, and standalone insurers. The public insurance provider accounts for the largest market share because of the trust it has developed over time over its customers. Private health insurance firms, on the other hand, are becoming increasingly popular, particularly among adults, because they cover more medical expenditures than public insurance policies. The costs of medical care may not always be covered by public health insurance.

Europe Health Insurance Market - By Type of Scheme

Based on the type of scheme, the Europe health insurance market is segmented into voluntary, mandatory, community-based, and employer-based. The mandatory type of scheme accounts for the largest market share owing to the mandatory requirement of health insurance for the registered individuals in most European countries. Countries such as France, Germany, Switzerland, etc., make it compulsory under their public healthcare systems, which is driving the overall market growth.
