Hibernian Aviva has announced today the plan to increase prices by an average of 12% from october 09.
The main reasons of these new rates are medical inflation and an increase in claims.
The change in premiums means that the cost of cover for a family of two adults and two children will go up by €140 a year to €1,990 under the insurer’s Level 2 Hospital plan.
Hibernian Aviva mentionned to have done the best to minimise the rise.
Many healtcare providers could also increase prices due to Hibernian’s announcement.
“While other healthcare providers are leaving their customers exposed by removing benefits from plans and applying excesses, Hibernian Aviva Health remains committed to maintaining superior benefits and coverage across all of its plan range,” insisted Hibernian’s Jim Dowdall.
