People are generally risk-averse but when it’s a matter of buying health insurance, they are mostly reluctant assuming nothing would happen to them. 

Especially in India, it’s difficult to make people buy insurance on the fact that, if some uncertainty happens and they get hospitalized. 

Rather I believe it’s easier to sell a product that would give a good return on premium if they follow some healthy habits and make a difference in their health condition. The overall return on the premium can be combined with saving on tax and it should be larger than what they actually end up paying as a premium.
