IRELAND'S second largest health insurer, Laya Healthcare, has announced price cuts of between 10pc and 30pc in some of its popular products for adults and children.

The reductions, which come into effect from August 1, include policies which members can tailor to meet their own needs under its "Create Your Scheme" offer.

It is also cutting the adult rate on five other products by up to 22pc; Essential Connect, Essential First, Essential Connect Saver, Essential Starter and Essential Plus Excess.

A spokesman said that currently members pay from €44.18 per month for an adult and €17.85 per month for a child, for health insurance cover with "Create Your Scheme". From August 1 this option is subject to a 30pc reduction for a child, reducing to €13.21.

Where a member makes a choice on the level of cover to suit their needs the percentage price reduction would vary.

Managing director Donal Clancy said: "Our promise to members is that we are looking after you always. We are continuously striving to do that in every way possible and we are now offering major reductions on our most popular products."
