Major insurance companies in the country are refusing to abide by the IRDA order to include Ayush products and services in the mediclaim insurance policy.

IRDA issued a directive in this regard sometime in last February after repeated representations from ayush industry.

IRDA under section 5(1) of the IRDA (Health Insurance) Regulations, 2013, had issued a notification directing inclusion of the Indian System of Medicines (ISM) in the mediclaim insurance policy.

But, no insurance companies have taken steps to comply with the IRDA order so far. [Source]
