Vodafone Idea (Vi) has partnered with Aditya Birla Health Insurance (ABHI) to provide its prepaid users with health insurance coverage. Vi users can now get free insurance coverage from ABHI on the purchase of select prepaid plans. The telco has termed this offer as ‘Vi Hospicare’. It is a first-of-its-kind product for prepaid users in India. Under the offer, only two prepaid plans - Rs 51 and Rs 301 will come with the benefit of health insurance. Users will be able to get insurance coverage on a daily when they purchase either of the concerned plans.
