Laya Healthcare Redirects Claim Cost Savings Back to Members until 30th June

We welcome the Government’s decision announced on Friday, 29th May 2020 to give back control of private hospitals at the end of June 2020, as originally planned. The Government’s actions in March were taken in the best interest of the nation in response to an unprecedented healthcare crisis, and we welcome the progress that’s been made in the fight against Covid-19.

At laya healthcare, we were proud to play our part in the collective national effort and we’d like to thank our members for their patience and understanding while private hospitals were re-organised during this time.

Putting money back in your pocket

As per our original commitment, we will redirect claim cost-savings to members until the end of June 2020.

In April, we announced that while hospitals were reorganised as a result of Covid-19, we would redirect claim cost-savings in the form of a benefit to the amount of €195 for every adult member and €60 for every child member. For a family of 2 adults + 2 children, that’s a total of €510. To date, we have made two payments – April and May, and we will finish with a final instalment benefit payment to our 600,000 members in June.

Members must have a current active policy on the 1st of each month to qualify for the monthly instalment.

In other good news, we’re delighted to announce that we are extending our unrestricted healthcare benefits to our members for the entire summer, until the end of August 2020. For more see here 

Extended Benefits

We're providing greater access to essential healthcare benefits & services.

This means increasing our team of GPs and Physios that are available to our members and removing existing restrictions at no additional cost for three months, so members can access key benefits and services remotely when they need them.
