Health insurance expert Dermot Goode of TotalHealthCover.ie has warned consumers to expect further increases as thr cost of many health plans have gone up, with some insurers imposing three hikes in 12 months. He said consumers need to be wary of average price rise figures as many plans could increase by double the figures quoted. “When the renewal notice lands, engage with your insurer or adviser to start the review process,” said Mr Goode.
