GCR Publishes the South African Medical Schemes Sector Risk Score

GCR views industry solvency to be prudent, benefitting from adequate reserve accumulation, inherently low product risk, and comparatively contained levels of market risk exposure. Regulatory oversight contributes towards continuing reserve sufficiency across the industry, while a high level of information transparency and availability supports a strong regulatory assessment. Active regulatory intervention has enforced key legislative measures such as corporate governance effectiveness, while also facilitating market consolidation in the interests of member protection.
