India is referred as ‘diabetes capital of the world’ with the diabetic population in the country expected to hit an alarming mark of 69.9 million by 2025 and 80 million by 2030 (2). A significant number of India’s population who are diagnosed with diabetes are currently under-insured. With diabetes being termed as a chronic disease, those diagnosed with it find it challenging to get comprehensive life cover to financially secure their family’s needs.
To empower diabetic individuals and enable them to have peace of mind about securing the life goals of their loved ones, Bajaj Allianz Life, one of India’s leading private life insurers, has launched an exclusive term plan Bajaj Allianz Life Diabetic Term Plan Sub 8 HbA1c. This is the first of its kind protection plan in the Indian life insurance industry designed especially for Type 2 diabetic & pre-diabetic individuals.
Bajaj Allianz Life’s Diabetic Term Plan Sub 8 HbA1c offers life insurance coverage by factoring in the nuances of the health condition of those having diabetes. For pre-diabetic or Type 2 diabetic individuals whose HbA1c is up to 8% (3) the comprehensive plan will enable them to provide financial security for their loved ones.
Speaking at the launch of this exclusive product, Tarun Chugh, MD & CEO, Bajaj Allianz Life, said, “As Life Goals enablers we continue to innovate and challenge ourselves, so that more individuals can secure their life goals. With this first-of-its-kind term plan designed for diabetics, I’m happy that we will be able to help several Indians secure their family’s long-term financial plans by giving them the well-deserved peace of mind.
