Private health fund companies typically seek to:

  • Implement strategies to increase brand loyalty, thereby retaining current members.
  • Offer innovative services to attract new members, both from competitors and first-time private healthcare buyers.
  • Reduce operating costs, including through wellness programs that reduce claims.

The additional costs arising from overweight and obese members are spiralling out of control. Health insurance companies must face these challenges head-on in order to deliver the right care for their members and reduce operating costs. We believe newNRG offers an unique solution to tackle the issue of overweight/obese members and their rising health care costs.

The newNRG proprietary process, diagnostics and programs are proven to address many of the members’ challenges, whilst also keeping the health fund’s business competitive for today and tomorrow.
