Like many financially-savvy youngsters, Prakriti Verma, 23, started investing in mutual funds through the systematic investment plan (SIP) route soon after she landed her first job.
However, the Delhi-based digital marketing professional has not accorded similar importance to health insurance. “I am covered under the group insurance policy provided by my employer, and also in the family floater policy bought by my father,” says Verma.
Like Verma, research analyst Ashutosh Bhardwaj, 23, has not purchased a health insurance cover. He is planning to buy one, but isn’t sure whether he needs one.
