It’s the first of many plans to be introduced in 2018.
This year’s plans are for those aged 18-35, with plans available for families, single people and pensioners.
The plan includes plans for a range of health services, including:1) an annual COVID-19 vaccination2) a range in health insurance for those in nursing homes3) a COVID vaccination4) the cheapest COVID vaccines for adults, children and pregnant women5) a PPL (pay per service) for people in low-paid jobs and for the elderly6) a ‘pay by the hour’ plan7) an online portal that allows users to access more information about a product8) a plan for the home, for people aged 55 or over, which allows them to access a range for their home or their properties, and also to pay by the month9) a Plan B for the newborn10) a maternity cover for pregnant women, or for the mother or partner of a pregnant woman.
A number of other plans have been introduced in recent years.
They cover a range, from a ‘basic’ plan to a ‘premium’ plan, including a ‘preferred’ one for those with pre-existing conditions, for example a respiratory condition or a heart condition.
The plans are expected to be offered across all sectors of the economy, from health and social services to transport, retail and hospitality.
The new plans are aimed at the middle class, who are expected, for the first time, to receive health coverage for COVID.
But for those who can’t afford it, they can find cheaper plans on the ‘prefer to pay’ option.
The cheapest plans are set at €7,800 for a family of three, while the most expensive plans are €17,900 for a single person, with the lowest rate of €1,500 for the ‘premiere’ plan.
