Investment tips for doctors

It is a fact that most of us lack the basics of managing our finances. It is not unusual to come across doctors who have little awareness about their income, expenses & future goals (for which money is needed). Here are some tips that could help.…
1. Life insurance: If you have dependents (children, spouse), life insurance is a must to safeguard their future in case of any unexpected incidents. Life #insurance is to protect the risk, and not an investment to get returns. Term plans are good.
2. Medical insurance: Medical care is expensive and we would have to bear the expenses if we or our family members fall sick. Family floater schemes are the best as premiums work out to be lower.

#Health #Insurance #India
Public sector general insurance companies in India are facing a huge challenge as they continue to lose market share in their #healthinsurance portfolio to private insurance Cos. Should you switch from a PSU to a Pvt Insurer
A thread🧵
1/n ⬇️
According to #Statista Pvt insurers across India held around 49 %  of the industry’s market share in FY 2021, compared to 36 % by public sector insurers. Standalone health insurers had a market share of around 8 % and specialized insurers had a market share of over 6 %
Public sector insurers are facing challenges such as low profitability, high claims ratio, outdated products, poor customer service, and lack of innovation. They have also been unable to compete with the aggressive pricing and marketing strategies of the private players.

This is borderline fraud by #Health and General #insurance companies in #India
The Misuse of "The Reasonable and Customary Clause" in #HealthInsurance
A Thread 🧵
We all know that health insurance is crucial, but a concerning trend has re-emerged post the pandemic in India. Insurance companies are back to misusing the "reasonable and customary clause" to reduce reimbursement claims, leaving ordinary people in a difficult situation.
🏥 Understanding the "Reasonable and Customary Clause"

The clause sets the maximum amount an insurance company will reimburse for medical procedures. It aims to prevent overcharging. However, some companies are misusing this provision

Insurance Policies in Native Language: Is it a must have for customer delight?
By: @rk_process9

In #India, #insurance penetration is very low. When an uninsured family member requires hospitalization, it can deplete a middle-class family’s entire savings.
1/n Image
Having a #healthinsurance policy comes as a boon in such times. Unfortunately, many individuals struggle to comprehend the benefits of these policies due to the complex #language and unclear #claim procedures.
This lack of understanding can be attributed to both the inadequate #communication of #insurance companies and the public’s difficulty in deciphering the complicated terms used in documentation.

#Organizations, #businesses, institutions generate a lot of #information which needs to be distributed to all concerned, in #languages that they can understand.

This requires #translation , not one way but both ways to establish a #communication channel. In an organization, there are often numerous information exchange touch-points, as well as information is created in many formats.
Translating all such information efficiently and timely can be a nightmare. Any delay can cause loss of a business opportunity. We therefore found it essential to enable our customers in a 360-degree way to ensure that they become truly #multilingual.

1) The fact is that @FDICgov #deposit #insurance is outdated. Don’t consider only the $250k or amount but underlying activities when assessing deposit insurance. It was designed for a Glass-Steagall world. Today, the #DIF should be priced relative to underlying business risk.
2) An old fashioned community bank that merely takes deposits and makes loans within its customer geography should be assessed at a different level than a bank that is also an asset manager, insurer, and investment bank.
3) #FDIC insurance should be priced based upon underlying activity AND business line risks. The DIF assessments for plain vanilla, old fashioned banks, should be essentially free up to a dollar amount that captures the deposit needs of their local customers.
