Apollo Munich Health Insurance, a standalone health insurer, on Thursday launched a novel health insurance plan 'Health Wallet' that caters not only to the customers' hospitalisation and OPD expenses, but also ensures affordability of continuing their policy in their golden years.

On offer along with the 'Health Wallet' plan is a unique 'RESERVE' benefit that continues to grow and earn for the customers and helps them secure their retirement, said Antony Jacob, Chief Executive Officer, Apollo Munich Health Insurance.

"Reserve benefit has been designed to ensure that your money does not get wasted. The most interesting part is that it lets your money earn for you", Jacob said.

Every year, the unused reserve amount gets carried forward and earns a 6 percent bonus. The accumulated reserve kitty can in turn be used to pay up to 50 percent of the renewal premium, post five continuous renewals.

It is unarguably a new milestone in health insurance industry that addresses the Indian savings and returns mindset and allows the customers to fund for their health insurance premium in their later (golden) years, according to Jacob.

On the occasion, Apollo Munich Health Insurance also introduced Bollywood celebrity Farhan Akhtar as the brand Ambassador of the company.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.
