Apollo Dkv Insurance
Apollo hospital has earned a repute of its own in providing the medical services. It had a brand value and better understanding of the health sector prevailing in India. The group finally expanded their activities by venturing in the health insurance sector which was still in its infancy. The company commenced as a joint venture between Apollo Group of Hospitals and DKV AG, Europe's largest private health insurer (Deutsche Krankenversicherung AG) on the 8th of August, 2007. The approach of Apollo DKV was to re-define the health insurance sector in India. The two companies held the stake in the ratio of 74:26 (Apollo Group of HospitalsDKV AG). The company was previously known as Apollo DKV Insurance Company Limited. The other group DKV has its headquarters in Cologne, Germany. It has been the market leader in Europe and one it is one among the top 5 health insurance providers in the world.
Apollo DKV initiated a variety of health insurance products, which were unique and thus are still among the best medical insurance policies in the nation. Some of the plans by Apollo DKV were:
Easy Health Individual Health Insurance Plan
Easy Health Family Health Insurance Plan
Easy Travel Insurance Plan
Personal Accident Insurance Plan
Health insurance being a new sector initially there were numerous complaints against Apollo DKV. But with passage of time Apollo DKV customers care gaining a better way in solving customer query reduced the Apollo DKV Complaint to a considerable level. This could be easily seen in various blogs on the internet. In a popular user-generated content and consumer review website on the Internet a consumer wrote an entire article on how the insurance helped her in getting a peaceful surgery and she had to pay nothing (the site is recipient of Red Herring Asia Top 100- 2008 Award). She mentioned her experience truly remarkable.
The health insurance sector is a bleeding sector in the country. There are often claims mounting in the companies and thereby the companies make loss. On the other hand genuine customer feels betrayal with unwanted delays and complication. But the approach that Apollo DKV has used has made it one among the fast emerging companies in the country. With the ongoing improvement in the customer service the company is sure to reduce the cribbing of Indian customer and their reluctance towards health insurance.
The thing that keeps the company going is the innovation. The company continues to bring out pioneering products. Apollo DKV was renamed as Apollo Munich Health Insurance in December 2009. Apollo Munich presents a huge figure of customer care services to help people stay healthy and fit always. The expedition of easing and making health insurance peaceful in the country seems to be the ultimate aim of the organization and with the continuous improvement it has just given the clear indication that they have just begun and will go a long way. Make a try and insure your health!
