Achmea uses reserves to limit the increase in 2023 health insurance premiums
Achmea is contributing about € 35 million from its reserves to limit the increase in its basic healthcare premiums for 2023. The aim of this is to contribute to the affordability of the healthcare premium for customers of Zilveren Kruis, De Friesland, Interpolis, Pro Life and FBTO. These brands announced their 2023 premiums on Saturday. The amount mentioned will be charged against the result for the financial year 2022.
The main reason for the increase in premiums is the growth in healthcare costs in 2023. This is due in part to a further increase in the use of healthcare and pay rises for healthcare staff. In addition, the price of materials used by healthcare staff has gone up sharply.
Based on its cooperative identity, Achmea aims for a responsible balance between offering a good health insurance premium to its customers and maintaining a sound financial position for the company.
