Zacca Embraces National Health Insurance Plan


President and CEO of Sagicor Group, Chris Zacca says the private insurance sector remains fearless as the country inches closer to implementing a National Health Insurance Plan.

Experts say implementing a public health insurance plan could take the country between two and ten years depending on the challenges and resources, but it’s a partnership Mr Zacca welcomes.

He’s also urging the government to move swiftly in introducing the initiative, citing an obvious need for health insurance in the country.
