Insurer ties-up with fintech firm to launch "bite-sized" offerings in India

Health insurer Max Bupa has announced a partnership with fintech firm MobiKwik to promote “bite-sized” insurance products on MobiKwik’s payment platform, according to a report from The Economic Times.

Bite-sized insurance products are affordable insurance offerings that can be purchased over the counter for specific health needs. One such offering that will be made available on the MobiKwik platform is HospiCash – a plan that offers a daily cash allowance for hospital stays, with the amount tied to a flexible monthly premium.
