According to reviews, these changes in insurance are mostly started by the leaders in the industry, adapted by startups and followed by small providers. Bermuda, recognized as one of the leading provider of insurance plans has also been catalyst for change. However, present situations in health care, a necessary insurance plan everyone should have, give the United States great focus. Even big companies acknowledge that health care which has been caused by the drift outpouring of needs is already shifting its outlook.
Companies in Bermuda like Axis Capital, with its group of insurance and reinsurance branches in Singapore, Australia and United Kingdom rely on their counterpart in the United States for the recent development in health care issues to update their own systems.

The following are the following issues and complaints which still wait attention regarding health care systems and insurance services around the world:
1. Inverse Care
Those who need health care the most are most often the ones who do not have health care insurance. Ironically, those who earn and have a stable income are the ones who have. Public spending on health services often benefits the rich. One reason for this may be the illiteracy of low-income individuals on their eligibility to avail insurance
2. Product and Market Issues
Health insurance companies offer a wide array of products to help individuals and their families access and afford the health care they need while also providing financial protection when unexpected injury or illness arise. Health plans are actively driving innovations to improve quality for patients and reduce the skyrocketing cost of health care.
3. Rising health Cost
The new health insurance tax, costly benefit requirements and age rating restrictions will drive up the cost of coverage for many consumers and employers. When this happens, many younger and healthier individuals could decide not to get coverage, which would further drive up costs for everyone else.
4. Growing Scam Insurance
Because of the high cost of insurance, many fraudsters are taking advantage to offer their “services” promising cheaper premiums. These fake individuals escape often under lax in penalty system.
