Niva Bupa Health Insurance Company Limited (formerly known as Max Bupa Health Insurance Company Limited) launched LiveWell webinar series to empower customers with knowledge around healthcare needs and instil confidence in people to take charge of their health and life. The first webinar under LiveWell was organized on Mother’s Day to discuss various concerns related to mother and childcare in the pre, during, and post-pregnancy phases.
LiveWell is an initiative conceptualized by Niva Bupa Health Insurance to bring together medical experts and consumers on a platform to drive awareness and bust myths around common illnesses and general misconceptions related to healthcare. The initiative is in line with Niva Bupa’s endeavour to amplify the brand proposition of ‘Zindagi Ko Claim Karle’, to enable consumers to lead a fulfilling life and leave behind financial worries on the health insurer.
The webinar panel included eminent speakers including Padmashree Awardee Dr. Malvika Sabharwal, Chief of Department of Gynaecology & Obstetrics at Jeewan Mala and Apollo Spectra Hospitals and Dr. Chavi Das from Niva Bupa Health Insurance.
Speaking at the first session, Dr. Malvika Sabharwal, Chief of Dept. of Gynaecology & Obstetrics at Jeewan Mala and Apollo Spectra Hospitals said, “Motherhood is an important phase in a woman’s life, and it was great to interact with the audience to highlight the importance of healthy living and well-being before planning to start a family. Women often ignore their own health either in the pre or post pregnancy journey in fulfilling the needs of their child. Through the Niva Bupa platform, I would urge all women to prioritize their physical and emotional wellbeing as they are the key to a happy and healthy family.”
Dr. Chavi Das, General Manager, Claim Adjudication, Niva Bupa Health Insurance said, “Today’s women and mothers are much evolved and understand the significance of financial security during different life phases. Health insurance helps in building a safety net against rising medical inflation and offers various benefits including maternity coverage, health check-ups, wellness benefits, child vaccination, etc. Motherhood is an important phase and women deserve the best care and medical support during this journey.”
