One of the prominent moments at the conference was the discussion panel in which Carlos Zarco, General Manager of the Fundacion Espriu took part. Alongside Helton Freitas, Chairman of Seguros Unimed and Frederico Peret, Chariman of Unimed Belo Horizonte, they delved into the considerable advantages and strengths that the cooperative models offer in the area of health insurance.

Dr. Zarco presented the journey that over the last half a century has turned Assistència Sanitària and ASISA into two leading cooperative companies in the Spanish health insurance sector. He also emphasised the fundamental role played by the cooperatives, not only when providing medical insurance, but also for promoting sustainable healthcare solutions exclusively centred on caring for people’s health and well-being.

Along the same lines, in Paris, on the 6th of December a meeting of AMICE was held, the body that brings together the leaders of the insurance cooperative sector in Europe. Dr. Zarco intervened in a session that debated the digitalisation process in health insurance and the added value that the cooperatives provide when balancing the rights of citizens with the data requirements that the insurance companies require in order to be able to offer the health plans that best care for people.
