About This Book

This book critically examines the public and private healthcare systems in India. Analysing the current scenario of health insurance in India, it studies the inadequacy of public healthcare services and unaffordability of private health care facilities. The volume investigates government sponsored health insurance schemes and advocates for the need of universal health insurance coverage. It details India's per capita health expenditure and provides policy inputs on how healthcare systems and insurance coverage can be improved in the country. Further, it explores the financial parameters of health insurers and standalone private health insurance companies, and also discusses the adverse impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Indian healthcare.

An insightful read on the state of healthcare in India, this book will be of interest to researchers and academics working in the fields of insurance, healthcare administration and management, public health policy and practice, health and social care, medical sociology, and sociology & social policy. It will also be useful for think tanks and policy makers.
