Today’s women are all-rounders or we can say are ‘doing-it-all’. From being a meek housewife, to a poised professional, to a caring mother, a woman plays numerous roles in a society.
It is common knowledge that women have a superior chance to fall prey to serious illnesses such as arthritis, irregular BP, diabetes and so forth. Women are even more vulnerable to bone-related disorders and breast cancer. Moreover, the frights of pregnancy related disorders come solely in women’s share.
There are good number of insurance plans in the market covering maternity and female specific health problem expenses which are specially designed with an intention to cover illnesses that a woman is more prone to get during her lifetime.
Earlier, women used to be covered under floater plans or as a dependent in the husband’s health insurance plan. But lately, as more and more women are entering the workforce, they are being covered under employer group health insurance plan as well as individual health plans. They are now monetarily prepared to invest and choose the most suitable insurance cover for themselves.
While purchasing a policy, one should look out for a complete coverage that includes women related diseases and maternity benefits. A wisely chosen health plan can go a long way to take care of your well-being in all phases of your life.
