Oriental Insurance company plans to launch a new mediclaim policy that will also cover patients that have HIV. We are almost through with the actuarial calculations and will file the product with the insurance regulator soon, said chairman and managing director M Ramadoss at the FICCI health insurance conference today.
At present,no mediclaim policy in the country covers patients suffering from HIV. Recently,Star Health & Allied Health Insurance launched a group insurance plan exclusively for such patients. However,the plan is just available in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu as of now.
