Achmea is preparing for an increase in health insurance premiums next year, CEO Willem van Duin hinted at while discussing the insurer's half-year figures on Thursday, ANP reports.

"In recent years, health insurers limited the price increase buy using our reserves. That is obviously not a sustainable situation", the CEO of the Netherlands' largest insurer said. Last year Achmea reserved an amount of over 430 million euros to compensate for premiums that weren't covering costs.
