The Technical Councils arose from the need for discussions in greater depth of matters pertinent to private health insurance and plans. These temporary groups consist of specialists from the ANS and / or representatives all of those involved in this sector, invited by the ANS and scaled to the level of complexity and importance of these issues. With a formal structure, these Technical Councils are established through an internal system that is also approved by the ANS Board of Directors .

Technical Groups may also be set up with similar structures and goals. As these Technical Groups conduct more specific technical studies in greater depth, they are not endowed with the formal structure of a Technical Council.

The conclusions reached through the discussions of the Technical Councils and Groups provide solid input underpinning the preparation of legislation.
