Health Insurance and Risk Management

Published on Friday, May 3, 2019

Toronto  -  In her column published by Risk & Insurance, Joanna Makomaski, President of Baldwin Global Risk Solutions Inc., discusses the fundamental risk management principles underpinning health insurance.

She write: "A risk pool is a group of individuals who together allow the higher costs of the less healthy to be offset by the lower costs of the healthy. The young offset the elderly. Able-bodied offset the impaired. The employed offset the unemployed. The broader the risk pool, the more predictable and stable the premiums. This is not a social statement. This is insurance."

When comparing the US system to others, including North of the border, she concludes that Canada must do something right.
