Reliance General Insurance Company (RGIC) on Friday launched a health plan — Reliance HealthGain — for the retail segment, and primarily for women.

This is a comprehensive health insurance plan specially designed to focus and support the healthcare needs of women, Rakesh Jain, CEO, Reliance General Insurance, said in a statement.

“Our assessment indicates that about 20 per cent of workforce in India is women and out of which only 10 per cent (that is, 2 per cent) end up having healthcare protection on their own. We have made an effort to encourage them to take health coverage by incentivising their inclusion in our new plan,” Jain said.

The new plan provides special pricing benefits to single women, widows and divorcees. The policy can be renewed till the customer desires; there is no exit age.

Reliance HealthGain offers pricing benefits on the total family premium in case of the inclusion of girl child.

“The plan is also aimed at supporting the girl child at a time when the gender ratio is highly skewed against the girl child. We are extending pricing benefits on the total family premium in case a family decides to add a girl child in the policy,” Jain said.
