Company Performance

ABHICL is at a very nascent stage. In the first year of operations, it has seen a loss of close to INR 150 million. However, it also has assets of nearly INR 100 million to back itself up. Considering ABHICL is under the guardianship of Aditya Birla Financial Services Group it is no surprise that the claim settlement so far has not seen any problems. The company in the year 2016 did a total business of INR 386, 137. Since ABHICL is only the sixth company to get the approval from IRDAI to function as a standalone health insurance company, the company is penetrating the Indian health insurance market at a steady pace. The company has a capital infusion of INR 250 crore.

Key Advantages and Features

Below is a list of the key advantages that ABHICL has over its competitors-

  • Exclusive Focus on Health Insurance: Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority, which regulates, promotes and ensures the growth of the insurance industry in India pointed out that there, are only five private sector general insurers that exclusively deal with health insurance. ABHICL is the first health insurance company to be issued with a certificate of registration.
  • Customization of the plan: The certificate of registration is a mandatory requirement for the amendment of the Insurance Act, 1938 to classify a company specifically for health insurance.  When compared to these companies Aditya Birla group has much more customization of the plan and is turning its focus on the retail sector.
