[December 2018] Laya healthcare has today announced details of price reductions across 15 schemes along with the introduction of a new ‘Family Value Offer’, saving families up to €343 per child. 

The 15 schemes are reducing by an average of 7.1% and includes a reduction of 5.6% on Flex 175 Explore, one of laya healthcare’s most popular schemes.
The exclusive ‘Family Value Offer’, means that parents only pay for the health cover of one child, with every subsequent child covered free of charge. The significant savings from this offer are available from the 15th of December across three of laya healthcare’s schemes -Flex 125 Explore (savings of up to €343.36 per child), Essential Connect Family (savings of up to €250.53 per child), and Essential Health 300 (savings of up to €234.60 per child). The offer is available to all children and teens under the age of 18.
This price reduction announcement is the second major price decrease from laya healthcare in six months and couldn’t come at a better time as it coincides with the busiest periods for health insurance renewals, as well as one of the most expensive times of the year for families.

Commenting on the Family Value Offer, Dónal Clancy, Managing Director of laya healthcare says: “Affordability without compromising on health cover is important to our members, especially those who have young families and we take this into consideration. We also strive to continuously invest in our benefits and services to add extra value for our members.
