The need for social insurance arises from the fact that the vulnerability of the poor informal worker increases when they have to pay fully for their medical care with no subsidy or support. On the one hand, such a worker does not have the financial resources to bear the cost of medical treatment, on the other; the health infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired. In order to overcome the problems of high medical expenses Government of Kerala has implemented various Social Insurance Schemes through the tying up with insurance companies. Thus, Social Insurance could be a way of overcoming financial handicaps, improving access to quality medical care and providing financial protection against high medical expenses. This paper aims at investigating to measure the comparison of Selected Social Insurance Schemes of LIC and GIC in Malabar region. The assessment has been made on the basis of its level of satisfaction and awareness.
