Health Insurance Overview
Alongside motor insurance, health insurance is one of the first products usually considered by people in Ireland to protect themselves against unforeseen events. However the health insurance market in Ireland is now a very complex place. There are 4 providers, over 200 different private health insurance plans available, many different types of plans, lots of terms and conditions, and lots of jargon.
Lyons Financial Services has emerged as one of the leading independent advisers in the health insurance market in Ireland to individuals and groups. We pride ourselves on understanding your requirements, making clear recommendations to you in plain English (we don’t like the jargon either!) and helping you to get the best plan for you in place without any fuss. It’s our job to understand the ins and outs of all of the different plans. This enables us to make sure you can get the right cover in place.
We also make it easy for companies and other organisations to operate health insurance schemes on behalf of their employees or members. We operate highly efficient salary deduction schemes, which make it easier for employers and employees alike to manage the payment of their health insurance contributions and to claim their tax relief on these payments.
We’ve all heard the widely held belief that “your health is your wealth”, that staying healthy is the key to living your life to the full. For this reason we all try to eat well, get some exercise and generally look after ourselves. However, unfortunately from time to time something goes wrong and we need to access health care. That can be as simple as seeing your GP, but at other times it may require more specialist care and indeed on occasion, a stay in hospital.
At these stressful times, we all have a common goal: To get well again! We want to be able to access the right care immediately and with the minimum of discomfort. We don’t want to have to worry about the cost of that health care.
This is where health insurance comes in.
