Max Bupa’s digitally-enabled `AnyTimeHealth’ machines are a first-of-its-kind inno-vation in the industry, which will enable KVB customers to take a free health test and purchase a customised health insurance policy in just a few minutes according to businessline.

“In the first phase, we plan to install 25-30 machines at KVB’s branches across cities. We have customised three-four health policies to make it simpler for KVB customers. Of course, they can also choose other policies from our range of products,” said Ashish Mehrotra, Managing Director and CEO, Max Bupa Health Insurance Co.

“KVB has large distribution outside of big cities and those semi-urban and rural areas can be serviced better for health insurance with an or-ganisation like ours. We have about 7.8 million customers, and this tie-up will enable our customers access low-cost and suitably customised health policies through our branches,” said PR Seshadri, Managing Director and CEO, KVB. The health policies will cover all age groups, critical illnesses and hospitalisation up to T20 lakh.
