    Hi

    We are about to renew our health insurance for myself, husband and 6 year old. We are currently on Laya simply Connect Plus and it has worked well for us this year - my son has claimed all €500 on day to day expenses (mainly physio/ some consultant and GP - no underlying health issues just a busy year) and my husband had access to hospitals consultants as required (cardiac care / stent). I'm wondering if there are any cheaper alternatives I should be looking at which will give us the same/similar level of day-to-day and hospital cover?

    I am also helping my parents renew theirs - 69 and 72 year old. They are on Laya Simply Connect Plus as well...

    Thanks in advance for any help :)

    day case excess 50 per visit. Good day to day cover, max refund 500 per year.

    Thanks for getting back so promptly SnowyB - I presume that increase on day to day is only effective for renewal after 1st December?
