BUSINESS IN SHORT

Private health insurers lukewarm over defunct rival's clients

DESPITE initial interest from other private health insurers in acquiring the clients of defunct health insurer Európska Zdravotná Poisťovňa (EZP), no competition for the 128,000 clients of EZP has actually materialised. None of the private companies has made a bid to take over the clientele under the terms offered by the Health Care Supervision Office.

DESPITE initial interest from other private health insurers in acquiring the clients of defunct health insurer Európska Zdravotná Poisťovňa (EZP), no competition for the 128,000 clients of EZP has actually materialised. None of the private companies has made a bid to take over the clientele under the terms offered by the Health Care Supervision Office.

The liquidator has now prepared another solution, offering better terms based on the insurers’ declarations, the SITA newswire reported.

“Subsequently two health insurance firms, Apollo Zdravotná Poisťovňa and Union Zdravotná Poisťovňa, have submitted draft takeover contracts,” said Richard Demovič director of the Supervision Office. The last private health insurer, Zdravotná Poisťovňa Dôvera, didn't join the process.
