Average IPMI premiums in Thailand

Thailand’s premiums are slowly climbing, even though it is still the lowest among the countries we’ve surveyed. On average, individual IPMI plans are priced at USD $2,035, whereas family plans cost about USD $7,367. That said, premiums in the South East Asia region are generally increasing.

Key drivers of IPMI premiums in Thailand

“Insurance premiums may be rising due to the fact that COVID-related/OIC mandated cover is compulsory for all onshore insurers in Thailand.” Ricky Batten, General Manager at Pacific Prime Thailand

With the introduction of the omicron variant and the subsequent spike in COVID-19 cases, insurers are mandated to cover certain related costs. Hospital quarantine costs are just one example. Moreover, tourists visiting Thailand are also required to obtain COVID-19 coverage.

Global insurance trends in 2022

Here is a quick summary of the trends rippling through the industry right now.

1. Healthcare utilization and costs are on the rise

IPMI premiums are increasing in the majority of the locations we surveyed. This is a sharp departure from the previous year in which most people, including policyholders, refrained from getting non-compulsory medical treatments. Along with the lingering mental health crisis, these are just a couple of many contributing factors.

2. Digitalization of healthcare

The pandemic has brought forth innovations in technology, for better or for worse. Telehealth is widely used and relied on during this time.

3. Anti-fraud analytics boom

With the increased reliance on technology and online transactions, it’s no wonder that cybersecurity is a must-have for any organizations, including insurance providers.
