Women have always been sacrificing whether it is their studies, personal life, work-life, family, or any of the things. When it comes to family, all prefer to take family plan for the protection of the whole family but never it is heard or said that a woman has an individual plan for her own.
Women should opt for a plan that takes care of them in all terms, there should be a policy that will only help oy women for their individuality, Under the income tax rules, women in India pay less tax as compared to men in India. This helps them in saving more on their disposable income. Typically, as women have more longevity than men; these days insurance policies are designed to address this cause as well as with a motive to encourage more women to invest in health insurance plans.
Women across the globe play a vital role in managing and bringing up a family, whether she works or not but family responsibilities, kids’ responsibility is on mothers because they are assumed to be doing it and it’s their duty to do everything for the family. So, if she could least do something for her is taking a plan for her own as an individual.
Most women in India still remain ignored when it comes to seriously take charge of their health. They are either dependent or too busy with daily chores to even think beyond that periphery. Most of the rapidly spreading diseases are a result of unhealthy lifestyles but can be corrected if managed with little care and precautions. So it’s a time to make effort to adopt a healthy lifestyle with an independent health policy that can really benefitTanimaParticipant@taMay 31, 2021 at 11:21 pm #31673
In our world, specially in India, women are always expected to serve, to give. After a certain age her demands are stamped as selfish desires. They are taught to live for their husband, children and family selflessly.
However among the so called selfless services, we often forget that women have a body too which need proper care, the womb where she carries our future generations.
At first let us talk about common health issues like back pain and knee pain after 30, caused by lack of calcium, autoimmune disease, depression and anxiety, gynecological health etc. We, women don’t take proper care of ourselves, thus scarcity of vitamin and minerals are seen mostly.about 30% means one-third of women suffer from anemia in India, caused by lack of iron.
If we site maternal health, according to WHO, 295000 deaths occurred in 2017 of which 86% are among south eastern Asia and sub saharan Africa. And the worst part is 94% of these deaths are from lower and lower middle class due to some preventable causes like animia, high blood pressure during pregnancy, infection, unsafe abortion and so on…
About reproductive health, women don’t even take them in concern, not knowing how much rough they can be. Diseases like breast cancer, ovarian cancer, Interstitial cystic are getting too much common. But still women even from current generation are treating them like just a 100 degree of fever, which is gonna be fine in just a few days. No girls it’s not.
Women are not concerned even about their period hygiene, some families still make their girls use old clothes which comes as a major cause of uterus cancer and vaginal infection. So we have not only one but a fur list of issues growing in women. The tragedy is, we only concern women that how much weak their bodies are but never tried to strengthen them. Is it still that ancient time when women were used to be a child birth machine? Nobody had anything to say about their unfortunate death. Vaginal health is still a taboo. Breast cancer should be talked in whisper.
Yes, we lack vitamin, mineral, necessary protein, roughage, but you know what we lack most? It’s the general awareness. Treating health issues are doctors job in deed but treating taboo issues? That’s what we need most.shaifalikapoor03Participant@shaifalikapoor03June 21, 2021 at 6:29 pm #32690
Not only women but everyone residing in this country should take an individual health insurance plan. It’s the duty of every government of the country to make sure the life of it’s citizens is not compromised at any point. Human life is to be considered an important resource to every country.
Insuring a health plan to every citizen of the country, provides a mere assurance of their healthy life.
Also, women have been considered less than men. so far, women are trying to be independent and create an identity of their own in this very world of discrimination. Insuring a health plan to women would provide a protection to all the women in the country, they would feel assured when it’ll come to their health.
Most women today, try to be more independent and seek to stay away from homes in order to study or work, health insurance policies provided to them would help them achieve what they seek. Nowadays, many companies have introduced special health insurance plans specially for the benefits of women. Women must learn about them and buy the one most suited plan for them.
Health plans are the key to make a woman independent and empowered.Shumaila SiddiquiParticipant@shumailaJune 21, 2021 at 11:14 pm #32702
Women are at more risk with multiple diseases comparatively than men. They don’t look after their health properly due to the innumerable responsibilities and roles they have to play in their life. A huge time of their life is gone looking after others health issues rather than focussing on her own health.

Heart attack are common in me but nowadays, there is an increment in women getting heart attack more than men. Depression is likely to hit women mostly, and they need therapies and sometimes even a treatment . Reproductive health issues and breast cancer are the most common issue which every other women are dealing and struggling for a financial help for treatments .

Most of the women working outside their homes juggle between two jobs- a work-from-home and a job at an office. Taking care of kids and handling demanding jobs keep them busy throughout the day. They hardly find time to concentrate on their health. Many brought up as ‘housewives’ often put health issues in the background. By the time 45 years of age, women are expected to spend more time on health management than men. Men will be at an advantage as they join the ranks of senior citizens and already have acquired solid health records. But sadly this is not the case with women. Most women are health conscious, they just do not pay attention to their health needs as compared to men. The main reason behind this kind of mindset is employment. Women are mostly a part of the workforce and this has made them busy in their lives.
Every woman should be encouraged to take an individual health insurance plan, it is an investment towards her good health. A regular checkup and screening of any possible disease or disorder can detect issues like pre-term labor, pulmonary embolism, and osteoporosis in the early stages. Postmenopause, women can be benefitted from hormone therapy and screening measures. Of course, the benefits vary depending on your age and condition. Women’s health is different from men’s in many ways. Heart disease, diabetes, and stroke, women are more vulnerable to these deadly diseases which can be prevented with regular exercise and the right eating habits. But until now women have been less concerned about their health.
There are many reasons to encourage women to take up health insurance in India. A woman is not only the income-earner but also the head of the family in most cases and this makes her financially responsible for their well-being. This proves a huge information gap between the two. Hence, it acts as an incentive for them to take out a health policy for themselves and/or their families. A health insurance plan for women is a popular choice for many. It is meant to give financial support during serious illnesses like heart attacks and cancer. These medical cover plans are designed to help the female have a better standard of life during emergencies in need of advanced treatment.
A lot of women, nowadays, contribute very much to their family’s income. Even, a woman who is not the earning member in her family is essentially playing an important role by taking care of the family. Thus, even she must be provided with medical insurance to safeguard her interests. The insurance industry has also seen an increase in many other products. Medical insurance for women is one such product. It is designed to cater specially to the needs of women and target their concerns. The medical insurance for women policies is intended to offer adequate coverage at an affordable price.PALAK KASHIVParticipant@palakJuly 3, 2021 at 6:10 pm #32951

It is time women take care of their health and invest promptly for their total wellbeing that these ailments increase their intensity and quickness. Most Indian women continue to be disregarded when it comes to addressing their health seriously. They depend on each other or are too busy every day to think even beyond that peripheral. Most of the diseases that spread rapidly are caused by bad lifestyles, but can also be remedied by poor care and prudence. Women can definitely profit in the long term from a conscious effort to adopt a healthy lifestyle and an autonomous health policy. Women in India pay less tax than men in India under the income tax rules. This helps them to save more on available revenues.
As women usually live longer than males, insurance policies are designed to address this problem and motivate more women to invest in health insurance coverage. Women, in general, get a lower premium with discounts up to a certain age. Women all around the world play a key part in family management and development. Whether you are a customer or not, women’s medical insurance provides enough coverage and many more maternity, critical illness, etc. benefits.
Women have an enormous prominence in health insurance. It is critical for women nowadays to pick one of the greatest health policy early in life, so they can look after yourself without the stage of financial instability. The average life span of women in India, according to the results of a study, is 69. The best health insurance coverage for women does not need to worry about guaranteeing their financial safety while being physically and mentally weak during a medical emergency. While many young men have chosen to work with their parents for health insurance.
In the past, it was quite rare for women to invest in separate health insurance. But women learned over time that their investment in a separate health policy was vitally essential. Sedentary lifestyles and critical diseases and accompanying costs are one of the main reasons why women should be involved in investing in a separate medical plan. It is currently necessary for women, because of sedentary lifestyles and other conditions, such as cardiovascular disorders, breast cancer, osteoporosis, heart diseases, and others, that they ensure themselves against expensive medical costs.DISHA SAPKALEParticipant@42dishaJuly 7, 2021 at 8:27 pm #33014
