There are lots of things for us to discuss.
Let’s start with the most important one. Do you need health insurance? You’ll get a clearer picture of whether or not you need cover in the Choosing Your Policy section. It explains all the things you need to think about when considering health insurance.
You’ll also find information on this website about everything that gets wrapped up in the cost of health insurance.
One of the big issues at the moment is in relation to public bed charges introduced in 2014. Did you know that privately insured patients are charged 10 times more to use the public healthcare system than public patients for NO additional services? Now in 2017 we are really seeing the impact of this charge. Find out more here.
Then there’s the Government Health Levy, which adds up to €444 to the cost of your insurance and there are lots of other things you might not be aware of. For instance, most people don’t know that the government cut tax relief on health insurance in Budget 2014 which also increased the price of health insurance for most people.
There’s other stuff too that we’d like to explain like Lifetime Community Rating.
But don’t let us hog the stage. If there are topics you’d like us to talk about, please get in touch.
We’d also love to hear what you think about the healthcare system in Ireland. As leading providers of Health, Travel Insurance and Life Insurance in Ireland we love to hear your opinions on how we and the insurance industry can best meet your needs.
