Insurance plan for diabetics: A costly, bitter pill to swallow
SummaryExclusive policies for diabetics are mostly overpriced and also may not cover OPD expenses
India is now the diabetic capital of the world. It is the second largest country after China in terms of the number of adults living with diabetes, according to a report by consulting firm Redseer published in 2021. The International Diabetic Federation expects the number of diabetics in India to cross 92 million by 2030. However, if you go by the latest report of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), that number has already crossed 100 million.
