SEWA Wage Loss Insurance Experiment: Evaluating the Sustainability and Scalability of an Insurance Product to Protect against Wage Loss

This project examines a novel insurance product that compensates people for lost wages when they must skip work to get hospital treatment. Existing health insurance plans do not compensate for this loss of income, which discourages utilization.  We conducted an RCT that varies prices for two wage insurance products for 9,948 households in rural Gujarat to estimate consumer demand and how adverse selection affects the cost of providing wage insurance.  We also estimate impacts on healthcare utilization and health. Our study will determine whether and at what price our NGO partner offers these products across 18 states in India.
