APA Insurance and Hollard Health Launch State-of-the-Art Health Insurance Solution
APA Insurance and Hollard Health have announced the launch of a new international health insurance solution named APA Hollard Health. This innovative offering integrates state-of-the-art technology with a personalized approach, empowering individuals, families, SMEs, and corporates to manage their health and well-being effectively.

APA Hollard Health emphasizes preventive care and wellness, distinguishing itself with extensive support, easily accessible information, and a commitment to top-notch care. This member-focused strategy is facilitated through the user-friendly HealthMov wellness app. This app enables users to oversee their health independently, encouraging healthy lifestyle changes and rewarding positive habits – all conveniently accessible via smartphones.

Depending on the selected plan, coverage spans across Africa, India, Europe, and globally. With five comprehensive plans available, members can choose the option that best aligns with their requirements and financial considerations. APA Hollard Health actively strives to enhance healthcare quality by incorporating wellness programs that not only cut down healthcare expenses but also promote overall health.

“The primary aim is to encourage healthier living among members, which in turn reduces healthcare costs and improves overall health outcomes,” said Ashok Shah, Group CEO of Apollo Investments Limited. “With APA and Hollard Health’s combined expertise, innovative solutions and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, we are setting a new standard for healthcare coverage in the region.”

With 80% of Kenya’s population under 35 years old, there is a notable preference for more digitally enabled health insurance options. Moreover, the program addresses the continent’s transition from communicable diseases to lifestyle-related ailments. These distinctive healthcare solutions, which reward healthy behaviors, empower employers to oversee employee health for optimal individual and business results.

Pravin Kalpage, CEO of Hollard International, remarked, “Recognizing Africa’s unique needs, we are dedicated to supporting the continent by offering cost-effective health insurance solutions that are tailored to diverse requirements. With a mission to make quality healthcare accessible to all, we empower people to manage their health by providing clear information and intelligent tools, enabling them to make informed choices for their health and future.”

The HealthMov app utilizes advanced technology to monitor and provide real-time feedback to users, facilitating gradual daily improvements that significantly impact long-term health. The platform features a comprehensive array of functionalities, including personalized health monitoring, lifestyle tracking, educational resources, goal setting, and progress monitoring.

“The HealthMov app is so intuitive, it can scan facial features and movement to measure heart rate, breathe rate, stress level and BMI. This information is then collated to give feedback, suggestions and rewards. Members have a virtual doctor, personal trainer, health coach and mentor in their pockets,” added Pravin Kalpage.

Additionally, the APA Hollard Health app incorporates telehealth capabilities, enabling members to consult with doctors remotely irrespective of their location. Furthermore, access to a second medical opinion is provided, empowering members to make well-informed healthcare decisions.

This innovative initiative stems from a strategic partnership forged in November 2023 between Apollo Investments Limited, the parent company of APA Insurance, and Hollard International. This collaboration aims to unlock fresh business opportunities across Africa for both insurers.

“We believe that collaboration is key to driving meaningful change in the healthcare landscape,” added Ashok Shah. “APA Insurance and Hollard Health are dedicated to empowering individuals to lead healthier lives and access quality healthcare when they need it most. With the introduction of cost-effective plans, comprehensive coverage, access to high-quality medical services and an efficient, quick claims processing system, we have specifically designed our offerings to address the healthcare needs of the East Africa region today and in the future.”
