“We extend our heartiest congratulations to Plum. Plum epitomises the kind of innovation that IIA seeks to support and nurture,” said Shwetank Verma, Cofounder IIA.
Plum’s Co-founder and CEO, Abhishek Poddar said, “Healthcare inflation is a reality in India. Further, the pandemic has shown us how even one major health emergency cannot just wipe out a family’s savings but potentially push that family into debt. This makes it urgent and necessary to provide more and more people with the safety net that health insurance provides as early as possible. Plum helps organisations provide high-quality insurance and health benefits at an affordable price for employees and their families. We have always been focused on pushing the envelope and launching innovative products and services which enhances the affordability and accessibility of health insurance. The IIA award comes at an opportune time as we have just embarked on a new financial year with even more determination to challenge the status quo and redefine the health insurance landscape in the country. We would like to thank the entire IIA team for the recognition.”
Plum Co-founder and CTO Saurabh Arora said, “We are honoured to receive the IIA award. At Plum, innovation is at the core of everything we do. We have always believed that hassle-free services are directly proportional to health insurance accessibility. And therefore, with the help of advanced technologies, we have focused on making the entire experience simple and digitally integrated.”
Plum, with its product-led innovations, aims to accelerate the pace of health insurance adoption in India and encourage all businesses to think about employees’ health-first.
