All too often, MIA finds that young girls are left out of a family’s health insurance policy, as the household avoids a higher premium for covering an additional person. In some insurance schemes, enrollment numbers suggest the families insure their sons, but often do not insure their young daughters. Without insurance to cover the costs, young girls may not receive sufficient medical care if they fall ill. As girls grow up to become mothers, exclusion of girl children can leads to cyclical consequences.
In an effort to ensure that girls are also covered under the family plan, MIA has created a family floater policy, which covers all members of a household for a flat premium. Your support will help raise awareness about the importance of insuring young girls in the household.
