You may fall sick or get injured at any stage of life. But the cost of medical care at private hospitals can be exorbitant. How can we lessen the burden of medical expenses?
You may consider enrolling in VHIS for yourself and your family to transfer the financial burden of medical care to an insurance company. Voluntary health insurance reimburses the insured for medical costs, whereby the insurance company shares the insured’s medical expenses incurred from illness or injury, thus reducing the huge financial burden faced by the insured when receiving treatment at a private hospital.
