With over 300 plans available on the market, Cornmarket’s Health Insurance Comparison Service compares all existing health plans from the three health insurance providers on the market; Irish Life Health, Laya Healthcare and VHI Healthcare.

Commenting on the health insurance market, Dermot Wells, General Manager, Health Insurance Division, Cornmarket, said: “Due to the complexities of the health insurance market, many consumers understandably let their health cover automatically roll over each year but they are missing out on opportunities to get better value.  The market in 2019 is more competitive with health insurance providers offering some great additional benefits and flexible options around various policies.
