Summary

South Africa contains the largest and the most-mature personal accident and health insurance segment on the African continent. The segment is competitive, and personal accident and health insurance companies which operate in the country contend for market shares against both private and public companies.

The South African personal accident and health insurance companies can be broadly classified into for-profit and non-profit businesses. Insurance companies that offer regular medical insurance and accident claim benefits function as for-profit businesses, in which the insurers provide cover to individual and corporate customers based on their written premiums. 

The leading insurance companies in the country, such as Santam, Mutual & Federal, Hollard Insurance, Guardrisk and Discovery Health, are considered to be for-profit companies. There is intense competition within the for-profit insurance business, since for-profit companies have to compete with other companies which offer similar products at low prices.
