Why a merger?
Our industry has made quite a few headlines over the past few months with the issue of ever increasing healthcare costs highlighted as a main concern with various recommendations of how these costs could be better contained.
From a Resolution Health perspective, we have always placed our members – and their pockets – at the very centre of everything we do. Inorganic growth is one way in which we can further ensure the Scheme’s sustainability and affordability. This is, of course, a long-term strategy with these type of transactions understandably taking quite some time to finalise. This year has seen our discussions with Spectramed Medical Scheme progress very well and we are excited to propose an amalgamation (merger) of the two schemes as of 01 January 2019.
