Don't fall into VHI trap the way I did

Where do I begin? I speak of the VHI hike. I have no option but to opt out as I just can't afford this exorbitant, unjust rise at this time of economic crisis that affects so many in our midst.

I have been with the VHI for over 35 years. I joined when I married and had a family and was too scared not to have private cover. Bigger the fool I was, but it's easy to be wiser in hindsight.

My advice to any young couple contemplating VHI health cover would be, think again. They (VHI) will do exactly the same to you when you reach a certain age, the age at which you might need to avail of that cover.
