Good news for Bupa International Members! Bupa International has this October made changes to its pricing zones and Kenya has been moved under Zone 7 pricing. The zonal pricing depends on which country you are resident in. Previously Kenya was under zone 6. This is the result of savings made via their Third Party claims administrators which they can now pass on to customers
The result of this change is that those Bupa members resident in Kenya will now have a more favorable pricing under Zone 7, however the usual increase in premium due to Age and Medical inflation will still apply. Medical Insurance Pricing is dependent on a Providers claims experience and with the control of claims, providers seek to encourage Doctors, Hospitals & other health facilities to charge reasonably and this would have a positive impact on premium rates.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about these changes We endeavor to provide clients with latest information, please follow us on twitter, facebook & linked-in for such updates. These are also reflected on our website.
