THE largest health insurer in the State is to cut the prices on a number of plans and said there would be no increases on other schemes.

VHI Healthcare is to cut the prices on seven popular plans by around 3pc.

This will mean savings of up to €90 a year for a family insured on the Family Plan Level 1.

The company said it was taking the “unprecedented move” of confirming there will be no price hikes on any other plans at this time.

“Vhi has also taken the unprecedented move of confirming that there will be no increase on any other plans at this time,” the company said.

VHI has more than one million customers.

The price cutting plans comes after Laya Healthcare cut prices on 12 of its plans before Christmas.

Price cutting is in stark contrast to multiple rises in premiums in the past few years.
