A new health insurer has entered the Irish market with the launch of Irish Life Health. The new entity has been formed following the acquisition of Aviva Health, along with Irish Life acquiring ownership of GloHealth. The new company, based in Dublin’s Abbey Street, provides consumers with an alternative to the existing health insurance offerings.
With the combined market share of the two companies, Irish Life Health will now have a 21 per cent share and an estimated 425,000 customers. It plans to build from this strong position by offering innovative, great value health insurance plans and exceptional customer service to Ireland’s two million health insurance customers.
Aviva Health customers will see their policies rebranded as Irish Life Health and from later this year GloHealth customers can start joining Irish Life Health as their policies come up for renewal. Irish Life Health is part of the Canadian-owned Irish Life group, which has provided financial services needs for over 75 years.
