India’s health system for foreigners
India is a country with a very contrasting development. Explosive in some areas, it remains almost non-existent in others. The same is true of the Indian health system, which, if it does exist, covers only a tiny part of the country’s huge population.
For the few insured, the security plan supports 4 risks:
- Old age and disability
- Illness and motherhood
- workplace accidents and occupational diseases
The country’s social security system depends on 100 Indian Labour Ministry. It is not universal and offers limited health coverage.
In addition to the social security system, a public and more extensive pension scheme was set up by the government several years ago: the National Pension System.
India works every year to improve its health insurance system and extend it to the population.
Do I need health insurance in India?
The answer is yes. India is a beautiful country with many flavours but is one of the countries in which it is essential to provide insurance before travelling or moving abroad. Some health care facilities are highly qualified but require very high medical costs. As an expatriate in India dependent on India’s social security system, you will not be cared for in the best health facilities but in public hospitals. In order to benefit from the best care, we recommend that you take out health insurance. It will generally also take care of repatriation insurance and civil liability. Things that are not always understood in the country’s social security system. India is one of the countries where health coverage is not a joke.

Your care will obviously be taken care of. But if you do not have a liability in your Insurance India, then the costs to pay to that third party will not be covered by your insurance and you risk incurring serious debt!
