Health insurance is typically regarded as a means to allow financial risk protection and allow the low-income family to have access to health care. There are several types of health insurance that help to prevent the tragic medical events and commonly related to out of pocket expenditure. These insurance schemes help the government to finance health care, improve access to health care services and promote universal health coverage.
