Pakistani doctor devises Insurance scheme for urban poor in India

Asher Hasan is a Karachi based doctor who has brought some amazing changes in the lives of the urban poor. In a survey Hasan discovered that low income individuals can never take advantage of Insurance in cities and big towns.

Hasan came up with a novel idea. To get large corporations, educational institutions and NGO’s to buy group Insurance. This way all low level employees, like peons, drivers etc get insured in an economical way.

Hasan talked about his ideas recently in Mumbai. He gave a talk at the Observer Researcher Foundation on Healthcare and Urban Poor.

Through his NGO, Naya Jeevan, Hasan is trying to improve the lives of the urban poor. It has been a decent success in many Pakistani cities with tie-ups with 80 corporations. Asher hopes to start operation in India soon.

With a huge pool of low income clients, costs for Insurance providers are reduced. And Naya Jeevan adds an advantage to the Insurance Policy. When a claim gets rejected, the NGO takes over through their own reserve fund.
