For those in good health — low blood pressure,
not smoking and so on — it’ll soon get easier to save on private health insurance. Currently, less than two percent of insurance
subscribers take advantage of potential discounts for staying healthy. But the Financial Supervisory Service plans
to require insurance companies to explain those special clauses, how to sign up for
them and the possible discounts they offer, which will result in average savings for men…
of 4 to 5 percent,… and for women… 1 to 2 percent. For life insurance, that’ll bring down premiums
by up to 14-point-7 percent. The FSS also plans — by this year — to roll
out an online service so bank consumers can see their insurance details right alongside
their bank account and credit card balances.
