According to a government report, out-of-pocket medical expenses account for up to 62% of our total healthcare costs. These expenses include doctor visits, medicines, lab tests, etc. and create a huge dent in the savings of middle-class families. The larger impact is devastating,
pushing millions of Indians below the poverty line every year. This is where Kenko, India’s first integrated health management organization is actively solving the problem, helping you finance your healthcare expenses.

Kenko provides comprehensive plans that offer financing solutions for OPD expenses and daily healthcare in a single, pocket-friendly format.

Launched in 2019, Kenko manages over 1.5L+ lives and has crossed a milestone of settling 25L OPD benefits so far.
