    My husband is insured with Irish Life Health on a Plan 16.1 which covers him for semi-private accommodation in a private hospital and €75 excess on most claims.

    With the renewal due soon and the cost increasing, we're wondering if there's a similar plan /benefits available for around what he was paying last year - €101.52 monthly?

    Thanks

    BlueButton,

    The following plans have a 100 excess and 50 excess per day case in private hospitals. Plans with a 75 excess would be similarly priced to his
    current plan.
    Details as follows;

    1. Irish Life Better Ultra; price 1300pa; all public, private and 3 hi-tech hospitals covered, 100 excess per private admission, 50 per day case.
    Good day to day cover.

    2. Laya Simplicity; price 1191pa; all public, private and 3 hi-tech hospitals covered, 100 x 2 max excess per year for all private admissions,
    50 per day case. Good day to day cover included - the first 100 not allowed. Note; this plan also fully covers a private room in a private hospital.

    3. VHI PMI 43 16; price 1171pa; all public, private and 3 hi-tech hospitals covered, excess 150 per private admission, 50 per day case.
    Good day to day cover included.
