Business Wire

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m6gxhw/personal_accident) has announced the addition of the "Personal Accident and Health Insurance in Brazil, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018" report to their offering.

The personal accident and health insurance segment is the smallest in the industry, accounting for 15.2% of the industry's gross written premium in 2013. Every Brazilian and foreigner residing in the country has access to the country's SUS. However, due to perceived inadequacies, the rich and the middle classes are increasingly using private healthcare services. As on 2013, more than 25% of Brazilians had private health insurance. The gross written premium registered by the segment rose during the review period.
