27 June Afternoon Forum

Health insurance experts from the Data and Analytics team within NMG Consulting have conducted a study across more than 30 health insurers in South Africa (where large specialist health insurers service more than 15% of the 60M population). The team will present some of the outcomes of that study, including:

  • The impact of the (strict) regulatory environment in South Africa on health insurers
  • The potentially changing role of insurers given the impending passing of a National Health Insurance Bill
  • Economic challenges and the impact on the ability to afford health insurance  
  • The impact of the COVID pandemic on insurers, both direct and ongoing
  • Changes in underlying healthcare usage patterns, and insurer responses to these
  • Insurers’ role in access to healthcare for their policyholders.

The data and insights are specific to one market but the learnings from it are likely to be common across health insurance markets. Some key findings applicable to Asian markets will also be outlined by the Data and Analytics team members based in Asia.

Presenters: Adam Lowe (virtual from Johannesburg) and Roberto Malattia (SG)
