1% health market share could lead to Rs1.5bn covid claims in FY22 (based on data as of 6th Aug’21): Total covid claims received by insurance companies in FY22TD were 1.3mn of which 1.04mn claims have been settled. In terms of value, insurance companies have received total claims worth Rs146.6bn in FY22TD vs 146.8bn in FY21 of which Rs99bn has settled in FY22 vs Rs79bn in FY21.
