The pandemic has impacted the health insurance sector both positively and negatively. In a positive sense, awareness of health insurance has gone up multiple times as demand for health products in the industry has grown substantially. On the negative side, the insurance company had products that had not taken into consideration the pandemic scenario when it came to the health insurance part.
