Resolution Health increases premiums from next month

Resolution Health has raised its premiums by an average of 14 per cent for its medical cover from next month in line with the double-digit rise in insurance costs.

The company said the increase is in line with new benefits including cover for people suffering from pre-existing conditions like diabetes, asthma and heart disease.

Other new benefits for both individual and corporate schemes include maternity, dental cover, HIV/Aids where some limits have been revised upwards by Sh200,000.

“The cost of doing business has gone up. If you look at consultation fee in hospitals which is the bare minimum price indicator, it is up by 25 per cent,” said Peter Nduati, the chief executive officer of Resolution Health.
