Global Health Insurance Market- 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.

Health Insurance Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Awareness Regarding Health Insurance

Increasing awareness regarding the benefits of health insurance owing to the increasing healthcare costs is anticipated to contribute to the growing health insurance market during the forecast period. Inflation rates of more than 15% in the medical sector have made healthcare costs beyond the reach of the needy. Therefore, health insurance is becoming more popular among the general public due to its demographic-specific products, such as those for seniors and children. Furthermore, the availability of a variety of health coverage options for customers, depending on their needs, drives the sector's growth.

Growing Prevalence of Various Medical Conditions and Accidents

With the growing burden of various medical conditions and chronic diseases, the healthcare expenses of an individual are increasing. Therefore, people increasingly count on health insurance as these plans help them cover their hospital bills and other medical costs. Additionally, health insurance provides lifetime plans that cover chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes and act as a supporter during the treatment. In most cases, health insurance plans also keep the treatment going.

Furthermore, accident and injury coverage are also included in health insurance. As accidents increase around the globe, the market is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Restraints

Complications in Claiming Reimbursement

Many insurance claims rejections have caused the general public to be hesitant to take out health insurance. In emerging economies, a lack of reimbursement at the point of need is a contributing factor to the low number of health insurance policies. Insurance companies often fail to reimburse properly due to various reasons, such as inadequate documentation or unclear insurance coverage. Moreover, the general public perceives insurance as a hoax, especially in developing and underdeveloped countries, which limits its market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Health Insurance Market

The health insurance market witnessed a significant boost after the unprecedented outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the number of COVID-19 patients increased worldwide, their healthcare costs increased dramatically. To cover the medical costs of COVID-19 patients, many health insurance companies launched Coronavirus Health Insurance policies. Policies of this type cover not just hospitalization costs for COVID-19 infections but also costs for virtually any type of viral infection.

Global Health Insurance Market - By Type of Insurance Provider

Based on the type of insurance providers, the health insurance market is segmented into public, private, and standalone insurers. A large share of the market for health insurance is controlled by the public sector due to the trust it has built over time. However, private health insurance companies are also growing in popularity, especially among adults since they cover more medical expenses than public insurance plans. Public health insurance may not always cover all medical treatment costs.

Global Health Insurance Market - By Type of Scheme

Based on the types of schemes, the global health insurance market is segmented into voluntary, mandatory, community-based, and employer-based. Among these, the voluntary schemes segment accounts for the largest market share as most working adults either opt for health insurance for themselves or their parents due to high healthcare expenditure, which contributes to the segment’s growth. However, employer-based segment also covers a substantial share of the market. Many employers provide their employees with healthcare policies to boost productivity and establish long-term employment relationships.

Global Health Insurance Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the health insurance market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Among these, North America dominates the health insurance market due to the developed healthcare system and high awareness of the benefits of these policies among the masses. Additionally, the presence of leading insurance providers including Anthem Inc., Aetna Inc., UnitedHealth Group Inc., Humana Inc., etc., also plays a crucial role in driving the market growth in this region. However, the Asia-Pacific region is also catching up and projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
