If you own a medical insurance policy, you probably dread receiving that letter every few years, informing you that your premiums are increasing. To understand the complex factors driving the increase of these premiums, we look at inflation of medical costs, the healthcare financing landscape in Malaysia, and what can be done to ensure medical insurance remains affordable. Mark O’Dell, CEO of Life Insurance Association of Malaysia, and Azrul Mohd Khalib, CEO of the Galen Centre for Health & Social Policy, join Dr George Lee to explore these issues.
