Co-Founder Khet Singh, ClaimBuddy has expressed his gratitude for the investment and the support. He said, "This initial support and investors' belief in our vision to create an ecosystem will help to streamline the health insurance claim processing in India."

He has worked in healthcare before his MBA at IIM-B. Thus, it has always been the space that he wanted to bring innovation in. "At ClaimBuddy, we help the hospitals manage their insurance department by providing them with a tech-backed end-to-end management solution for processing their claims. Over 90% of the Indian Hospitals are individually-owned units. They lack the required technology and domain expertise to manage the insurances. It ultimately results in delays/deductions and rejections of health insurance claims. This entire broken process affects the patients the most. With our solution, we aim to bridge this gap and help hospitals improve their financial and operational efficiency. Thus, topping it up with improved patient experience," he further added.

Ajit Patel Co-founder, ClaimBuddy said, "Health Insurance in India is under-penetrated. I have seen the problems in claims processing closely during my work experience of about 10 years at insurance companies and hospitals. So, I knew that this problem is worth solving and has scale. We started working closely with our first client hospital to understand the issues and established a working model before implementing the same in other hospitals.”

Bipin Shah, Partner at Titan Capital, said, “The pandemic has seen rapid growth to the digital shift in the industries, and by leveraging technology, ClaimBuddy has done a praiseworthy work of providing one-stop solutions for all medical insurance claims. Health insurance is an important aspect of a healthcare institution. The domain knowledge which the team has is worth appreciating ensuring hospital’s insurance claims in a much smoother way which is very patient-centric.”
