The insurers are privileged sources of tips in terms of physical and financial well-beingr for consumers

Mores two thirds of consumers are interested in physical and financial well-being, yet onlys 8 % of insurers have implemented the resources needed to answer to.

Paris, the 20 september 2022 – The report of Capgemini and Korus published today, entitled World Life and Health Insurance Postponement, noted that them consumers place insurers among both sources privilegedes1 some advices in matter good– being physical and financial. Neverthelessmost of insurers do not worry not to interact with their customers and to make them aware of adopt systematically are steps favorable to welfare. Given the current situation macroeconomic uncertainties and policies, but also sanitarypolicyholders have become more sensitive to physical and financial well-being.

“Well-being as a service” (Wellness-as-a-Service) offers a flexible model for life and health insurers looking to align their offerings with the changing needs of their customers. In order to be able to offer high value-added well-being solutions, insurers will have to focus on developing a modular technological architecture, based on data and platforms, in order to exploit the full potential of proprietary and third-party data. . This first report sheds light on consumer preferences and defines a roadmap for insurers who wish to offer “well-being as a service” in their individual and group insurance offers.

Understand customer behaviors related to welfare
With longer life expectancies and the accumulation of challenges such as demographic trends, retirement savings deficit, inflation of medical costs and shortage of healthcare personnel, well-being has become a priority for customers. The report reveals that more than two-thirds of consumers surveyed* are interested in physical (69%) and financial (67%) well-being, and that 37% and 24% of policyholders consider insurers to be their preferred potential partner when it comes to physical and financial well-being, respectively.

Iinnovate for to propose hyper-personalized services
Consumers are ready for this transformation. According to the report’s findings, 83% of them seek on-demand customer services, 78% ongoing support with physical and financial well-being, and 74% value-added services and hyper-personalized rewards. However, only 8% of insurers have effective wellness value-added offerings and resources in place. The report indicates that InsurTechs are ahead of insurers in key resources for hyper-personalization, namely the exploitation of artificial intelligence and the machine learning (28% of InsurTech vs. 14% of insurers) and cloud (44% of InsurTech vs. 19% of insurers), while both are at the same level when it comes to product innovation. However, only 43% of insurers co-create or innovate effectively with strategic partners or their ecosystem.

What we have been through these last two years proves that well-being must be a priority, and insurers need to understand how to propose effectively good servicesbe. This report illustrated the need for insurers to transform and focus on hyper-personalized services that meet individual customer needs, said Samantha Chow, Global Head of Life Annuities and Health Insurance at Capgemini. That involves switch to one model “Well-being as a service” leaning on the data, with a technological innovation that put the customer to foreground. This will allow insurers toestablish a closer relationship with their customers and that the will help address them how and when where they need it most. »

To meet these new expectations, the report says, insurers need to focus on three priorities that will help their customers make the connection between physical and financial wellness initiatives:

  • First, insurers can help their customers get well physically by accessing day-to-day and/or emergency medical care; and financially by meeting their current financial needs.

  • Second, insurers can help them to avoid to face health problems (by ensuring that they respect their medical prescriptions, their therapeutic protocols or routine medical visits), or financial difficulties, by helping them to anticipate unforeseen expenses or by raising their awareness income protection solutions.

  • Finally, insurers can help them to to improve their physical well-being through daily health advice as well as their financial well-being by offering them better financial planning solutions, better opportunities and more education.

John Berry, CEO of Qorus says: “ Over the past few years, we have seen our insurer partners innovate and evolve to a state ofspirit of prevention, for the benefit of all. In fact, customers have closer relationships with the insurers who genuinely care about their well-being. insurers and public bodies are fully aware ofthe advantages linked to convalescence shorteres, and to health problems that have been avoided, grace to technological advances that allow better monitoring and better support for all. »

According to the report, to transform the customer relationship from a transaction-focused to a relational approach, insurers will benefit from adopting a “Well-being as a service” approach, based on a deeper understanding of customer expectations. . This will enable the delivery of hyper-personalized wellness initiatives leveraging technology, creating a wellness-centric business model and developing an ecosystem between InsurTechs, HealthTechs, big tech players and well-being actors.

Key initiatives to implement in order to meet customer expectations
The report concludes that this transformation will require insurers to rethink their offerings and how they are monetized, but also where they should invest. For individual insurance, emphasis will need to be placed on a closer relationship with the customer, personalized incentives, ongoing underwriting and the promotion of the tangible benefits of well-being, beyond the peace of mind offered by basic offers. With regard to collective insurance, it will be essential to rethink benefit packages and to strengthen transfer capacities from the group to the individual. This will involve educating employers on how employee well-being drives retention and productivity, the benefits of personalized perks and the increasingly popular optional offerings.
