In the days in which this note was written, Prepaid companies should have defined how much they would increase in March installments., an increase that must be notified to its members 30 days in advance. However, of the seven entities consulted, only one responded and asked not to be mentioned, arguing that they manage vague definitions,
The increase they are anticipating, although far from being generalised, will serve as an example of the lesser evil for the people’s pockets. Over 6 million prepaid members There has already been a 75% increase based on the payments they made in December.
If we insist that the points given below cannot be taken in a general manner, there are two reasons for this. The first is that the decree of Javier Miley allowed entities to adjust their quotas without any official authorization, so that Everyone can put the percentage of their choice,
It should be remembered that in the first two months of the year, companies agreed to adjustments that were not uniform, but rather in a “scheduled” range, which produced results Complaints about “factionalism” of the region, For example, on behalf of the Civic Coalition, they pointed out that there was not actually competition among the actors, but rather “abuse”. And everything happened in the context of various judicial protections.
This is a very difficult topic because two incompatible realities coexist. Anyone who takes the time to look at the accounts reported by any small health company (without obvious ostensible ambitions) will see that increases in these months can be justified in minutes, always keeping the wheels of business turning. In the context of, something that cannot happen must of course be “bad”. But the point is that this business is dedicated Very sensitive topic for life: health,
At the same time, given the scale of the prospects of a typical family of the (now) former Argentine middle class, the increases in January and February were painful, they felt excessive and without a doubt they are proving excruciating for many families who His health was entrusted to these companies. This reality (in which a company that you fed day and night for years, one day simply “discards” you) also cannot be denied.
Returning to the axis of these lines (the increase in March), each company can raise whatever it deems appropriate today, and due to the stirring of cartelization signals, many of the six did not respond. bugle He emphasized that “in any case, everyone makes their own point of view.” A strong way to differentiate itself from any labels in the direction of posterization.
The second reason why the increase cannot be generalized was explained by the only source who spoke to this medium. They said today they are strong Two logics of growth: one hard and the other, one might say, “light”.
Inaccuracies regarding prepaid installments
“There are no definitions. We are looking at it and it will be finalized this week. This is a topic we do not discuss among ourselves,” the person who responded to Medium clarified, adding: “What I can tell you is that there are two arguments. is on one side economic parameters, on the other, commercial decisions,
The economic benchmark is what the largest companies have, which excludes inflation. They try to regain the points lost in the previous year When for a few months the government allowed the increase in fees to be much less than the increase in the sector between supplies, medicines and salaries.
This person said, business decisions focus not only on corporate social responsibility but also on Small companies fear losing customer base, This is a luxury they cannot afford, because they do not have the support of big companies.
“Recover what was lost? This work will be done little by little. we in march We’re going to match the fees to inflation, based on our February estimates. Currently I have two advisors. One says it will be 18%. Others, 22%. we will stay within that range They told.
This afternoon this idea began to be confirmed. Galen’s associates began receiving communications saying that dues would increase. 22.9% since March, “This will be included in billings that begin in April,” the letter sent by the entity said.
Accumulation of Increase in Prepaid
You don’t need to know anything about economics to do the calculations. With 20% being the most favorable scenario for March, and taking into account the 40% implemented in January and about 25% in February (according to each company), we immediately come to the conclusion that increase of 110% Regarding prepaid medicine installments since last December.
In other words, the quota will more than double, something that will not surprise those who were satisfied with the increase by their income declaration before the Superintendent of Health Services in the (these days, chaotic) December. Just as they received special raises, these associates also received an equally different slap With change of government.
“My goal in this crisis is Beat the peak of hurricanes, which will occur in March and April, when transportation, rates, fuel and schools go up again. The portfolio of associates should be included and the assets protected. Recovering what was lost will be long-term,” the source admitted, not without some concern about the dismissal requests.
Well, these are not less. In this area he warns that the year-on-year increase in “deportations” from prepaid companies is 100% today.
“I will give you an example. Yes, 7,000 people left me in January last year. This year I’m missing 14,000. Yes, they are compensated by the heights. But this year we have records for both,” he revealed. The person consulted confirmed that the solution for many companies is the new low-cost plans, “which many people are requesting.”
In short, if there are two arguments for adjusting quotas, it’s because “big companies don’t care so much about losing a little customer.” But not everyone experiences this escape in the same way: “I hope I’ll be able to come out in pairs. Matches or is just a little smaller.
