We take a closer look at some of the great schemes they have on offer and why they are striving to keep their promise of “Looking After You Always”.

Welcome the New Year with a renewed commitment to living healthy. Having fresh expectations for yourself is important to both your physical and mental health. Obviously, that's easier said than done. While changing your diet and exercising more might be high up on your list of priorities this month, a very big part of your New Year resolutions has to be sorting out that all important health insurance. With nearly half a million members nationwide, laya healthcare is Ireland’s second largest private health insurance provider.

Laya healthcare is composed of 440 team members who use their rich heritage and experience of the Irish market to help you access quality products with great benefits and friendly service. They are committed to looking after their members always and making sure they receive the best possible healthcare at all times. 

Taking care of your family’s health can be a worry but the clever people at laya healthcare have recently launched their Essential Connect Family Scheme as part of their Essential Suite. The Essential Connect Family Scheme will offer family’s savings of 19% over the VHI One Plan 150, providing best value family cover. For a family of two adults, two kids and one full time student, your cover is just €2,050 annually or a monthly payment of €175.96. The Essential Connect Family Scheme offers a wide range of benefits ensuring your loved ones have the essential cover they need.

So what’s included in this Essential Connect Family Scheme? Firstly your family is covered for semi-private accommodation in private hospitals including the Beacon Hospital. Other benefits include specialist cardiac procedures in the Mater Private Hospital, comprehensive cancer care and overseas cover. Essential Connect Family is subject to a once off €300 in-patient excess per policy per year.

If a family package isn’t for you, another fantastic option from laya healthcare that has caught our eye is their new Create Your Scheme online tool, which allows you to create a flexible scheme that suits your needs, giving you more choice and greater control over the price you pay, and to us, that sounds like music to our ears. You select the level of hospital cover you need, choose an excess that suits you and choose the level of everyday cover you want. Create Your Scheme was developed to allow choice and flexibility and to allow you create a scheme around your own budgets and needs.

Innovation is also at the heart of everything they do. When you join laya healthcare or renew your policy, you can avail of their free heart screening, HeartBeat.  HeartBeat screens for the detection of underlying heart conditions that may lead to, or cause, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS). Your HeartBeat screening comprises a personal and family history questionnaire, body mass index, blood pressure check, a physical examination and an electrocardiogram – all carried out by laya healthcare professionals.

As a laya healthcare member, you will also have access to excellent hospitals, doctors, consultants and healthcare.  They have a dedicated Nurseline service available to members for added peace of mind. The service is available 24 hours a day and is run by qualified nurses who have a wide range of clinical experience and are ready to lend a friendly ear to any questions or concerns you have on any health issues.

So what are you waiting for? Go get your health insurance in shape!
