Szv Urges Compliance Businesses Have To Pay Premiums Or Make Contact

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten Social and health Insurance provider SZV has seen a drop of some NAf 4 million per month in premiums since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020. This constitutes a significant loss for the solidarity fund that is built on a pay-as-you-go system that pays for the health care costs of all insured clients.

In spite of the drop in premiums, SZV is so far keeping pace with the needs of its clients. The decline in overseas medical referrals due to the pandemic has also helped as well as the availability of more treatments and specialists locally.

SZV has also seen the deregistration of some 4,000 jobs since the start of the pandemic in March 2020 to December 2020 Read more
