Re: How does Health Insurance help to fight with pollution related diseases?

The incidence of waterborne diseases such as Malaria, Cholera, Scabies, Hepatitis A, Dengue Fever, Leptospirosis, Typhoid is disproportionately high in India. Treatment and recovery from these diseases may require the victim to remain hospitalized for extended periods of times and the many of these conditions may also require surgeries as part of the treatment. The cost of the treatment, usually, is significantly high and not everyone can afford to pay for the hospitalization with their own resources. Health Insurance reduces the burden of hospitalization costs and offers a number of features that are beneficial to the policyholders’ physical and financial health.
