A Director at the Reserve Bank of Malawi has disclosed that the RBM still does not have full control over medical aid and insurance, pending completion of a regulatory framework on the matter.

There had been queries on the Registrar of Financial Institutions’ mandate to regulate medical insurance in the country, owing to disputes that arose about two years ago, between medical aid providers and hospitals.

There was a case, which saw disagreements over a medical aid institution’s failure to remit claim bills to administering health facilities.

The development led to the suspension of attendance to patients on medical insurance cover from the concerned Medical aid providers.

The Reserve Bank said then, that they could not intervene on such matters, as their mandate was limited.

This was due to a lack of a regulatory framework.

Speaking to Capital FM, the RBM’s Director Responsible for Pensions and Insurance Supervision Chimwemwe Kachingwe reveals that they have finalised drafting a Bill on the same.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any points for first-time blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.|
