Microinsurance is a kind of insurance coverage provided to low-income members of society. It is a subset of microfinance. With modest premiums and a personalised programme, it fully or largely reimburses the medical and other requirements of those who are financially disadvantaged.
Government initiatives, the expanding insurance business, and greater consumer knowledge of insurance programmes drive the global microinsurance market. The growing prevalence of busy and sedentary lifestyles lead to the growth in incidences of obesity and diabetes across the globe. This creates a need for microinsurance, which can cover the growing medical expenses. Microinsurance is increasingly preferred due to its affordability and transparent dynamics, which aids the consumers. Also, several organisations are employing multichannel platforms and virtual networks to provide incentives and build a value chain in the microinsurance business.
