Britam Insurance Company (Rwanda) has unveiled a new health Insurance cover targeting small and medium sized companies in the market. The ‘Britam Health’ product is a flexible health insurance plan targeting organizations with five or more members, but will not be offered to individuals.

Britam Health offers inpatient cover and a newly introduced fund managed outpatient cover. The cover will cater for consultation and all other expenses and fees that one would incur during hospitalization.

Britam Insurance Rwanda’s General Manager Antoine Uwamungu said the new scheme would cover all routine outpatient services, and give clients the choice to decide on the specific services they require with guidance from the Britam staff.

He said the product is in line with two key pillars of the Britam Groups 2016-2020 “Go for Gold” Corporate Strategy, namely customer service, and product innovation.

Refund policy

“The new fund managed outpatient program provides refunds to clients for all their unutilized funds. This means clients only pay for that which they use and at the end of the insurance period, the unutilized funds may be carried forward to the next period or refunded to the client,” Uwamungu said.
