The insurance sector in India is regulated by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). The introduction of health insurance schemes by Indian government, which includes personal accident (PA) schemes like Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY), PA cover from Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corp (IRCTC) and so on, has resulted in increasing penetration of the health insurance market in India.

Health insurance is a type of insurance coverage that pays for medical, surgical, and sometimes dental expenses of the insurance holder. It protects the insurance holder from unexpected, high medical costs. Health insurance usually requires the covered policyholder to bear a portion of the risk by paying initial medical costs up to an agreed-upon amount before the health insurance is liable for payment.

The health insurance market is booming in India with rising number of people suffering from chronic diseases, increasing number of road accidents and encouragement from both public and private sector companies.

The Indian Health Insurance Market is segmented based on claim type, type of insurance provider, insurance type, business type, different types of health insurance plans, type of scheme, type of coverage, term of coverage, cash limit, mode of purchase, end-user and region. Based on type of insurance provider, the market is segmented into public, private and standalone health insurers. In 2019, private insurance providers accounted for the largest share in the Indian Health Insurance Market.
