Description:
Background and Methodology ▪ The HIA has conducted consumer research biannually since 2002 ▪ This presentation reviews the findings from the 5th research project. ▪ The 2011 research has been conducted to gauge consumer (and employer) attitudes towards private health insurance, identify trends and assess the impact of the economic climate on customer perceptions. ▪ The 2009 questionnaire was altered as specified by the HIA; amendments are highlighted in this presentation ▪ A nationally represented sample of 1011 interviews were conducted faceto- face between November 2nd -27th 2011 ▪ Interviews were carried out using a hand held computer device, HAPI. One of its advantages is that it allows automatic routing of questions ▪ In order to ensure a representative sample of the adult population in the Republic of Ireland (aged 18+) quotas were set around gender, social class and region. ▪ The raw data was weighted to reflect the national population. Each chart in the report shows the unweighted base and the weighted percentage. ▪ Data for preceding years have been taken from published reports as previous research was not conducted by Millward Brown Lansdowne ▪ When reading figures presented in the report it is important to note that the margin of error for a sample of 1011 is +/- 3.2%. For a sub sample such as the number of respondents with PHI insurance (424 of the sample) the Margin of Error is +/-5% ▪ Specific questions were asked of policy and non policy holders with a group of questions towards the end of the survey being asked of the entire population Topics included; ▪ Incidence of Health Insurance ▪ Reasons for not having Health Insurance and the possibility of taking out Private Health Insurance in the future ▪ The number of adults and children on the policy, duration of policy ▪ Questions around switching (- incidence and consideration) ▪ Pricing ▪ Past actions and future intentions ▪ Work schemes ▪ Claim experience ▪ Complaint experience ▪ Attitudes towards PHI ▪ Impact of economic downturn ▪ Awareness of the Health Insurance Authority (HIA)
