Monday, 04 24 2017, Category: Health, Country: Egypt
The underwriting committee emanating from the high commission established by insurance companies and health care companies will hold its meeting by the end of the current month as it gathered all the health insurance statistics from member companies such as premiums, number of insured, and medical insurance cost in addition to the cost of each service taken individually.
“Al Mal” was informed that the committee will use these statistics in order to reprice health insurance on sound technical bases in order for the price or premium to be fair. An actuarial study will be developed in order to study the increase in health insurance costs and health service providers’ costs including hospitals, laboratories, x-ray centers as well as the increase in the costs of local and imported medicines.
