ANS concludes that Amil’s portfolio of individual and family plans should no longer be sold to APS | Economy

The ANS determined this Friday afternoon (29) that Amil’s portfolio of individual and family plans will no longer be sold to APS.

With the agency’s final decision, the 340 thousand lives will be the responsibility of amil.

According to the ANS, the decision was taken after the realization that APS, in view of the request for information, “would not be able to autonomously manage the acquired portfolio, jeopardizing the continuity and quality of health care of linked consumers” .

In December 2021, Amil sold its entire portfolio of individual health plans in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Paraná to APS.

In early February, however, the National Supplementary Health Agency (ANS) decided to prevent the sale and corporate change of APS. The measure was in force until this Friday’s decision (29).

According to ANS, the decision to prevent APS’s current partners from withdrawing from the company’s membership, as well as prohibiting Amil’s current parent company from withdrawing from Amil’s membership, was taken “due to the lack of information to the regulator on the alleged acquisition of the corporate control of APS”.

At the time, the decision took place in the midst of customer complaints regarding lack of service and changes in the accredited network.
