A Journey into the World of Insurance

By Elissa Joyce Subscribe to RSS | February 1st 2012 | Views:

Advancement in ways of life has led to some sophistication on the means of acquiring basic human needs. People’s lifestyles in the 21st century are a world of difference from the ways of life of persons who lived in the 18th and 19th century. In medicine new maladies have come up, and with them, medicine has seen profound advancement.

Recent times have witnessed strange medical conditions, giving rise to a need for insurance coverage. This has fueled the health insurance industry’s growth, as they hand out policies to provide coverage for their customers.

All this is happening in a health sector that was much ignored in the past because of reasons such as:

1. A general notion that it was expensive and meant only for a certain class of persons.

2. Naivety of the public with regards to the importance of taking insurance cover.

3. The poor image that was created by pioneers in this field. Most of them never used to pay up for some insured risks.

4. There were long periods and too many procedures that were undergone in the name of formality, before one was compensated for a loss suffered.

5. The tight budget that a high percentage of the public lived on did not allow them to spare funds to buy insurance policies.

6. Many limitations were placed on the kinds of risks that could be insured and the persons eligible for coverage.

7. There lacked enough expertise in the field of insurance, which made some players monopolize the sector.

The times have changed for better. The high literacy levels among the public has led to proper public awareness on the importance of insurance. High literacy levels have also brought about enough expertise in this sector of health, hence breaking the previously intolerable monopoly.

The amounts of premiums chargeable have been reduced, with an aim of inviting policy holders to certain insurance companies. Insurance companies have also come up with a wider range of risks that can be covered.

This has been diversified from the traditional individualism in coverage, to a whole family coverage perspective, making the dream of having an affordable family insurance become a reality. It entails a family bread winner being able to protect themselves as well as their families with a single insurance policy. The amount of premium to be paid, therefore, becomes less. This is as opposed to a situation where they would have to pay for each family member separately.

Having affordable health coverage is everyone’s wish. In respect to this, there are various considerations for policy holders, before they have to settle on particular insurance companies. This has kept many insurance companies on their toes, trying to come up with policies that are cheap and convenient for policy holders.

With many people struggling to have the best out of life, their health becomes something of immeasurable value. There have been significant achievements in the insurance cover journey. These include the fact that there are diverse insurance policies that one may choose from. Also, there are many players in the insurance industry and this, therefore, makes the various policies affordable. Moreover, insurance covers are now not limited to individuals hence they can be taken for a group including the whole family.
