IRDAI wants health insurance to be affordable to all 💪

  • On the 30th of August 2022, IRDAI pitched making health insurance affordable for everyone by reducing expenses.
  • Debashish Panda, chairman of the IRDAI, says that high operating and distribution costs, as well as hospital expenses, may be affecting insurance pricing.
  • Mr Panda suggested making insurance affordable to all by looking at ways to reduce the expenses while also making sure that the insurers are not too burdened by such a reduction.

KYC will soon be mandatory for health and motor insurance 📝

  • IRDAI is planning to make KYC mandatory for general insurance companies.
  • The KYC documents are currently not mandatory while purchasing a non-life policy, but it is mandatory at the time of claims, particularly for claims worth 1 Lakh and beyond.
  • Insurance experts believe that making KYC mandatory will help them in building a detailed database of the customers, which will be of great help at the time of claim settlement.
  • While IRDAI plans to make it mandatory from the 1st of November, the non-life industry has requested an extension for its implementation.
