Ayurvedic Treatment covered by Insurance companies is a boon

Ever since Health Insurance Company agreed to cover patient who are undergoing Ayurveda treatment, more and more people are opting to cover themselves under this policy. The Ayurveda treatment and expense can now be covered under this section. Some companies were in favor to take along this sector and provide insurance cover and this has made it easier for people to seek this form of medication. Last heard was that New India Assurance will bear only 25 percent of the treatment expense, and that too only if you are admitted under to a government hospital. The company other than Ayurveda also covers unani and homeopathy at government hospital.

As we know that insurance companies like Cholamandalam, Star Health covers ayurvedic but not naturopathy under its health insurance policy. Likewise even Star Health covers ayurvedic treatment. Since they started this on experimental basis and the surging popularity has made the insurance companies to offer better product when it comes to deal with Ayurvedic treatment. So this again infuses trust in patient who wants to opt for alternative treatment other than allopathic.

Insurance companies started this on experimental basis and started to churn out creative with their products. Adding ayurvedic treatments to their covered expenses allows them to attract people who trust alternative medication. There are several medical conditions where patients have responded better to ayurvedic treatments. While insurance coverage for ayurvedic treatment may only be at its nascent stage, it has tremendous potential for the future.

Insurance companies, follow strict conditions when then offer to cover ayurvedic treatments. They do not follow all policies, so patient has to be careful when they have to claim for ayurvedic treatments if there is anything specific they underwent.
