Sunday Times: Money Q&A: what’s the best health cover for my family of four?


Ireland’s leading health insurance expert, Dermot Goode of, answers your personal finance questions:

According to Mr. Goode, “the first point is you are potentially under-insured compared with your children. The second is the children are insured on a dated “consumer” plan, which is expensive relative to other options. We would recommend you “re-balance” the cover to move the children on to a better-value corporate plan and use the savings to upgrade the cover for yourselves.
