Hannover Re wins award for innovation

09 October 2014 Hannover Re

At this year's Insurance Conference Munich (inscom) Hannover Re was the recipient of the "I3 Award" in the category of Design Innovation for the "Energie Einspar Protect" (EEP), an energy savings product developed jointly with b2b Protect GmbH.

The prize is awarded in recognition of business models, services and products designed by companies that have the potential to deliver fresh impetus to the insurance sector and further advance the industry's development.

The EEP policy enables providers of energy-saving measures to offer their customers a warranty for the efficiency of their solution. If the measure fails to deliver the promised savings, the customer receives a compensatory payment from the insurer. This product opens up new potential to generate premium while at the same time making an active contribution to climate protection.

"We see this award as affirmation of our continued efforts to develop new risk solutions going forward and thereby position ourselves as an innovative partner for our clients", Chief Executive Officer Ulrich Wallin stated.

QUESTION

No developing economy has ever built a single-payer complementary NHI equivalent covering the entire population. NHI promises comprehensive care but it is also 100% free at the point-of-service. Is this practical?

ANSWER

It is doable but collaboration is key
South Africa is not in a position to build NHI
The only conclusion possible is that the private healthcare sector is not going to disappear or change
There is little chance that the NHI will be able to receive significant government funding
