The insurance companies both public and privates have officially launched the Rwanda Health Insurers Association (RHIA), the association that will help them to harmonize their activities. These founder companies are RSSB , SORAS, MMI and CORAR.
In his remarks, Dr Innocent Gakwaya, the president of the association said that RHIA has been set up to have the same opinion on the problems that can occur in the medical insurance field.
Dr Gakwaya said that the human being life takes precedence over everything and states that it is not a matter of competition, that’s why all these companies have preferred to work together.
Senator Rwabuhihi Hezekiah, who was the guest of honor during the event noted that the number of insured persons in Rwanda is still very low, but the mortality rate has been reduced through medical treatment accessible to all.
He said he is totally optimistic about the contribution of RHIA to help subscribers in medical insurances and the services providers.
