In terms of GWP and paid claims the leading classes are MTPL and health insurance. At that premiums of MTPL increased just slightly - by 0.3%, but paid claims saw a very rapid growth rate - by 20.6%; in health insurance premiums jumped by 2.1 times and paid claims went up by 92.4%.

Changes in the mentioned leading classes are mainly caused by that in health insurance from October 1, 2017 the government launched CHI (compulsory insurance), which should cover public employees, as well as the most underserved people at the first stage of introduction. As for MTPL - in April 2017 direct reimbursement system was established which fundamentally changed the whole picture. Besides, insurers are actively promoting online MTPL policies and automation of many processes, related to this type of insurance.
