These products may be designed as special products or additional benefits.
The amendment decree also revised the General Law for the Inclusion of Disabled Individuals, which prohibits any type of discrimination against individuals with any type of disability. The decree defines various disabilities, including physical, mental, intellectual and sensorial disabilities; these definitions will pose challenges for insurers when designing products that comply with the new mandate.
Insurers must register the new products and benefits that comply with these amendments with the National Insurance and Surety Commission.
