HIV+ patient may get medical insurance soon

People living with HIV (PLHIV) may get medical insurance policy in India soon. National Aids Control Organisation (NACO) is meeting with Insurance Regulatory Development Authority to press them to make insurance inclusive for PLHIV.

Currently, HIV is excluded from all insurance policies available in the country. At present, only Star Health and Allied Insurance has an insurance policy for PLHIVs in four states -- Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu which provides a health cover of Rs 30,000.
