Saransh Garg, CEO & Co-founder, of Nova Benefits said, “While the world continues to battle and overcome the impact of the pandemic, it is no secret that medical expenses have also increased in parallel. In such a situation, it is of utmost importance for employers to support all their employees with health insurance and benefits, as a basic requirement. With this free health check-up drive, we wish to spread awareness of the need for regular health check-ins and access to basic healthcare facilities. It is heartening to see more and more companies take Initiatives on this front, to help and support the health needs of all employees. In line with the same, we at Nova, aim to cover 10 million lives in India by 2025, irrespective of status, bringing health and wellness benefits to as many employees as possible.”
