Who are GigVistas, Alyve, Care Health Insurance and what are their roles?

GigVistas is a platform for Gig Work that is reimagining the future of work. Our AI-powered platform empowers you to choose work that frees you and enables companies to better connect with critical resources at the right time.

Alyve Health is a Health “E”nsurance platform for groups. We bring care to insurance, fun to habits and a single gateway to health. Care Health Insurance (Formerly Religare Health Insurance) has been among the five private sector insurers to underwrite policies exclusively in health, personal accident and travel insurance segments. Care Health Insurance was adjudged the "Best Health Insurance Company" at the ABP News-BFSI Awards 2017 and again at the Emerging Asia Insurance Awards, 2019 and "Best Claims Service Provider of the Year" at the Insurance India Summit & Awards 2018.

Alyve Health works with the insurance and health ecosystem to put together unique health plans that meets needs of groups. GigVistas has partnered with Alyve to bring to the Gig Professionals a first of its kind insurance plan for independent contractors, freelancers, and Gig professionals. Care Health Insurance underwrites the risk of the insurance cover. It is the synergy of this ecosystem that enables this unique and extremely beneficial health policy cover for the registered Gig professionals on GigVistas.com

Can I avail the same directly instead of going through GigVistas?

No. This is a group policy and in order to avail this policy an individual must be a Gigvistas member and should purchase the policy through the web application of Gigvistas.com after signing in.

What is a group policy and how is it different from what I can get for myself individually from any of the insurance companies?

What we as individuals or even families can buy from the insurance market are retail policies. These typically are expensive in comparison to group policies and come with a longer waiting period for existing diseases. In addition, retail policies for senior citizens are difficult to obtain with adequate cover and often require rigorous medical screening that can be inconvenient for senior citizens. A group policy on the other hand provides the benefit at lower costs on account of risk being spread out through aggregation in number of policy holders. Group policies also have shorter waiting period requirements for pre-existing diseases. By becoming a community member of GigVistas, independent professionals can avail this unique policy with affordable rates and better coverage.

What is the difference between base policy and top up policy?

A base policy covers you up to the sum insured while a top up policy covers you for the limit under the policy only once the base policy sum insured limit has been exhausted. Let us assume that you have a base policy for 3 lakhs and a top up policy for 5 lakhs. In this case if you have an insurance claim of 7 lakhs, 3 lakhs cover will be provided by your base policy and the balance 4 lakhs will be covered by the top up policy. If for some reason you don’t have a base policy, then the 3 lakh amount will be treated as deductible (borne by you) and the balance of 4 lakh will be eligible for claim. On our platform the base policy is for 5 lakhs and top up is for 30 lakhs. The 30 lakh top up assumes that there is a base policy for at least 5 lakhs. The top up insurance of 30 L will cover expenses over and above this base value cover.

How to estimate premium and understand the cost?

Use our intuitive calculator here to estimate the cost. You can compare the costs with other retail plans available and will find this group policy to be very competitively priced.
