Summary (English)

The case study aims to document the systems and procedures of PREM-Plan's micro health insurance scheme for replication, better understanding and feedback for further improvement. Documenting the experience of PRHPS with a large membership base will give valuable insights into the functioning of such schemes and also help the PRHPS managers to have a critical perception of the scheme for its development. Authors hasten to add however, that this is only a critical documentation of the scheme and not an evaluation.
