KPT and Zur Rose are launching an innovative model for basic insurance

The mail-order pharmacy and wholesale supplier to medical doctors Zur Rose is
marketing an innovative basic insurance model in cooperation with the health
insurance company KPT: For a premium discount of up to 20%, the insured parties

medication checking and patient dossier. The CEO of the Zur Rose Group, Walter
Oberhänsli, is convinced: "With the new model, we make a contribution to
lowering health costs and at the same time offer the insured parties an
extremely reliable, inexpensive and attractive drugs supply."
