Quinn Healthcare announces price rise of 12 per cent

The changes will come into effect next year, the company said today.

QUINN HEALTHCARE HAS announced that the average cost of its health insurance is to rise by 12 per cent in January.

The company said the move was “unavoidable” and was partly due to the Health Insurance Levy imposed by the government which it says cost it €100 million over the past two years.

The current levy is €205 for every adult and €66 for each child on a health insurance policy.

Quinn also attributed the rise to advances in technology, medical devices and new drugs meaning the cost of treatment was rising.

The company said that the changes would come into effect from various dates on 1 January of next year and for customers will come into effect at the next policy renewal date

All customers will be written to regarding their specific policy, Quinn added.
