Responsibly and period. Responsibly, without adjective restritions, because it cannot be admissible the responsability for sectors, areas in life only. The man as a being must be responsible. Every generation disposes of an economic, social and enviromental legacy to build its mark of creativity, comprehension and work. Every generation has an inheritance and its experience in this planet should make the planet better, or at least, not make it worse. For the business intitutions or not, public and private, that are the fruit of the organization of men that have gathered together with specific goals and interests, it is worth the same principles. There is no merit in success, growing or enrichment without restraint in the lagacy that is avaiable for the next generations. Even if our resources were infinite, the man, responsible being, and the intitutions he constitutes should compromise with the maintanance of what he explores for his own survival and welfare. A matter of character. But then the resources are finite so it is a matter of character and the survival of the planet. Unimed Cuiabá believes in the good character of the human being and understands sustainability as a principle of relationship between men, a relationship between generations and, above that, a relationship with God. Nature can be perfectly maintained if the man is good and responsible, inclusive with the planet. Doctor João Bosco de Almeida Duarte Every generation has an inheritance and its experience in this planet should make the planet better,
7 Administrative Council 1.2 Word from the Executive Director and Vicepresident of PróUnim Challenges and Oportunities President João Bosco de Almeida Duarte The publication of this Sustainability Report is another step accomplished, that makes us proud and also makes us responsible for new challenges. From the initial effort of few, we, today, contemplate the crescent adhesion of people who are commited to the cooperation for a planet in balance and a healthier society, in all the ways. It is an unmistakable demonstration of the central line that guides the evolution of the Cooperative, positioned without fears in the market and that is also known for its transparency, gravity, honesty and, above all, its strategic vision. In 211, Unimed Cuiabá made real the most important project of the Cooperative for the last years, with the construction of the Unimed Fácil service. The deliberation for the investment with its own resources was made in a general assembly of members in 29 and it represented the most important break of paradgim redirecting the possibilities of growth for the Cooperative. The adoption of its own resources served, preminarily, the need of repositioning itself in the market, with the main goal of shielding Unimed Cuiabá against possible incursions by foreign competitors attracted by the potential of Mato Grosso and Cuiabá. The problem transformed itself in a business oportunity when the Cooperative identified an emerging market niche not yet comtemplated by the health care plans avaiable. In 28, Unimed Cuiabá launched Unimed Fácil, more accessible, destined to the social classes C and D that started aspiring for a health care plan as a dream just less desirable than a house. The plan was launched and was immediately a success of sales and rentability. The challenge then renews itself with the perspective of the implamantation of its own physical structure that promises the high standard of service estabileshed by Unimed Cuiabá. Another external fact that calls for a gigantic administrative effort is about the normatives demanded by the National Health Agency with the objective of regulating the sector. It occurs through resolutions most untimely ones and the National Health Agency amplifies the list of cover for contracts that already exist, which results in a great impact on costs without the correspondent autorization for the reajustments in the plans. This causes a force that increases terribly the claim rate, generating an unbalance between revenue and expenses. Controls costs, enlarge the sales, without compromising the service and maintain the claim rate in an aceptable margin are articulated points that will keep the rentability of the plan and the satisfaction of the clients and members.
