Oskar Health Insurance is now offering a new insurance option for those on a low income or with a limited budget.
The new insurance package is available for a maximum of five people and costs just €11,500.
The plan covers all the basics, including dental, vision and life insurance.
The policy comes into effect on October 15.
The policy will cover a range of healthcare costs including hospitalisation, prescription, prescriptions, doctor visits, home healthcare, emergency medical services, physiotherapy, orthodontics, chiropractic and home care.
The company said that it has a strong and diverse patient base, including those from the Irish Traveller community, who are seeking healthcare for the first time.
The aim of the new insurance plan is to make sure that every person on a €1,000 income or less can have access to the services they need.
It also includes a number of other benefits, such as maternity, dental, prescription and prescription drugs.
“The new insurance is based on the principles of the Universal Health Care, the principle that everyone is entitled to the same level of healthcare and that everyone should be covered equally,” said Oskara Healthcare CEO, Jeroen van de Vos.
“The Universal Health care is a cornerstone of our approach to health insurance, and Oskars policy provides us with the flexibility to cover people who do not qualify for universal coverage, or who need extra help for a specific condition or disease.”
The new policy is the latest offering of a variety of affordable healthcare services, as the Government’s healthcare reforms have brought significant changes to the way people can access healthcare in the country.
Since the election of Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the Government has introduced several measures to increase healthcare coverage, including the establishment of a National Health Insurance scheme and universal health care.
