Dôvera ranked best health insurer for second consecutive year

IN its second annual analysis of health insurance providers, the Health Policy Institute (HPI) think tank ranked Dôvera at the top and the state-run Všeobecná zdravotná poisťovňa (VšZP) at the bottom.

For the second consecutive year, Dôvera received an “A” rating. Union also received an “A.” Apollo and Spoločná zdravotná poisťovňa (SZP) both were awarded a “C.” And VšZP received a “D.”

Adam Hochel from the Health Ministry criticised the ratings, calling them biased and a promotion of private health insurance. Hochel also commented that Európska zdravotná poisťovňa was not ranked.

HPI explained that the insurer was excluded because its investors left the health insurance market.

HPI mentioned that both public health insurers were reluctant to participate in the rating, so the think tank got most of the data from public sources or websites.
