Private health insurance remains the fastest growing insurance product since the beginning of the pandemic. Last year, more than 18,000 private health insurance contracts were concluded, bringing the number of active contracts in the segment to 62,000, according to official data from ISA.
In private health insurance, 10 non-life insurance companies last year collected a total of MKD 405 million (EUR 6.6 million), which means an increase of 48% compared to 2020.
Insurance companies paid over 23,000 claims in 2021 to cover the costs of insured citizens in private health insurance. The number of claims doubled compared to 2020. Nine non-life insurance companies paid over MKD 211 million (EUR 3.4 million), which means that the amount paid to cover medical expenses last year doubled as well.
