How to cut the cost of your health insurance

More than a million people are due to renew their health insurance in the first three months of the new year, yet many of them are still paying too much.

If your renewal is due, now is the time to review your plan to make sure you are getting the best deal.

According to Health Insurance Authority (HIA) research, more than a third of respondents switched their health insurance provider in the last year.

However, despite the rising costs of health insurance and living in general, the HIA’s research showed more than half did not switch, with many citing difficulty comparing plans as a key factor in their decision to remain with their current provider.

Health insurance in Ireland

In Ireland, health insurance is offered by three providers, Laya, VHI and Irish Life Health. In theory, with just three insurers, it may seem easy enough to review the market.

However, there are literally hundreds of health insurance plans available and it can be incredibly time consuming to research the market and find the best package to suit your needs.

Furthermore, not all plans are made available to the general public.

Unfortunately, these factors tend to result in policy holders paying higher health insurance premiums than they need to.
