Health insurance (also known as “accident and health insurance”) is a type of “insurance of the person”, in the sense that the subject matter of the insurance is the life, limbs or health of a human being. Some insurers now offer this kind of cover through their life insurance departments, but originally it was general insurance business, and still is for the purposes of this study.
