Indian Health Insurance Utilization Trends

HYDERABAD-December 6, 2021: The techniques used to evaluate the performance of a health plan are to some extent universal. Applying methodologies that he previously used to analyze American claims trends, Adam Powell worked with Preeti Singh to explore claims trends in a health insurance program for low-income people living in Andhra Pradesh, India. The article, Utilization Trends of a Government-Sponsored Health Insurance Program in South India: 2014 to 2018, was published by Value in Health Regional Issues, an Elsevier journal. In short, Singh and Powell found that the average cost per claim declined between 2014 and 2018, while mortality concurrently declined as well.

Since 2013, Adam Powell has served on the visiting faculty of the Indian School of Business (ISB). The Financial Times has ranked the Indian School of Business as the #1 Global MBA program in India, and #23 worldwide. In addition to teaching students at the post-graduate and executive level, Dr. Powell has engaged in research on the Indian healthcare system. It is of particular interest to him due to its structural commonalities with the American healthcare system. This publication is Dr. Powell’s third article written in an Indian context. He has previously examined electronic health record adoption and mHealth app privacy policies in India.
