What is private health insurance?
Private health insurance is designed to cover the cost of treatment in private and public hospitals and help meet every day medical expenses.
Plans can cover the cost of inpatient and outpatient treatment, so you have the security of being treated at the right time and place. The cover can be varied to suit your budget and there is a wide choice of options to consider before taking or switching your plan. If you’re confused by all the different plans that health insurance companies can offer, we can guide you on selecting the most suitable product cover at a price that suits your needs.
We can arrange health insurance cover for clients in the following areas:
- Individual insurance – cover for an individual and their family based in Ireland
- Leaving an employer scheme – reviewing your options to maintain cover, following retirement or ceasing of a company policy.
- Switching health insurance – cover for an individual who wishes to switch their health insurance
At Howden, we’ve also teamed up with Irish Life Health to give you even more. Our health insurance not only covers the cost of treatment, but also rewards you for embracing a healthier lifestyle.
The plans available offer great benefits such as Healthy Minds, Digital Doctor, Back Up and Nurse on Call, but you can also get a plan that offers you money back on fitness wearables, your gym membership or a visit to a dietician.*
Contact us to speak about which plan might be the right one for you depending on your needs or budget, we are happy to advise.
