Welcome to Laya Healthcare - our story, our people

Laya healthcare is the second largest provider of private health insurance in Ireland with over half a million members. With a dedicated and passionate team of over 450 people, our sole focus is to Look After You Always.

In 2015, laya healthcare proudly became part of AIG, one of the strongest insurance organisations in the world with over 90 million customers in 100 countries and jurisdictions.  

With our experienced team and innovative insurance solutions, along with AIG’s financial backing, global expertise and long term commitment to Ireland, we expect to go from strength to strength, widening our offering and bringing value and innovation to Ireland’s insurance market.

We will continue to work closely with our members to educate and empower them in their lives, protecting their long term health and wellbeing for years to come. You can rest assured that laya healthcare will continue to operate in Dublin and Cork, providing the same excellent service for which we are known.

Together, we’re here to look after you always - whatever your need or stage in life. We do this by placing at your fingertips fair, transparent health insurance cover designed to suit your needs and budget. We have also extended our suite of services to include laya life, our simple and affordable life insurance offering.

Innovation is at the heart of what we do. You can access a wide range of hospitals, doctors, and consultants; quality cancer and cardiac cover; excellent maternity and child healthcare and direct payment centres. You can draw on the expert medical opinions of worldwide specialists, find cover for infertility treatment, or call our free, confidential 24 hour GP Line and Nurseline whenever you need their support.

And because we know that our members like to be proactive in managing their health, we cover health checks, screening, dental, optical and complementary therapies.

Our broad range of corporate healthcare schemes and health and wellness services are designed to help employers achieve their goal; whether it’s reducing absenteeism, increasing productivity, or maximizing employee engagement. And our Employee Assistance Programme is always there when your people need support.
