This study is part of a case study series designed to review products of some of the more prominent organizations offering insurance products to the poor. There are four general models of insurance: 1) Partner-Agent, 2) Full-service, 3) Mutual and 4) Provider Model. The GRET case study is a partial example of the Provider Model of insurance provision, as GRET is a mixed provider/full service insurer.
The study attempts to review its activities as a health care financing provider and aims to provide an understanding of the mechanisms and practicalities of the Provider model, as well as an indication of the level of satisfaction of their market. Additionally, this paper reviews the process by which the product was developed, tested, and implemented to provide information on the processes and to identify issues in the product cycle.
