THOUSANDS of people who have health insurance with Aviva and GloHealth are to be written to this week to tell them their insurer has been rebranded as Irish Life Health.

The takeover of the two companies has created a new health insurer with a 21pc market share and 425,000 customers.

Irish Life Health will be headed up by Jim Dowdall - pictured yesterday at the launch of the new brand - who was the boss of GloHealth.

He said consumers do not have to do anything and can continue to avail of all of the benefits in their plans the same way they have to date.

Aviva Health customers will see their policies rebranded as Irish Life Health, and from later this year GloHealth customers will be invited to join Irish Life Health as their policies come up for renewal.

All 160 employees of Aviva Health and GloHealth have moved to the Irish Life campus on Abbey Street, Dublin, where the Irish Life Health offices are located.
