In detail, the research aimed to provide an update on the following: • A review of consumer attitudes to health insurance in recessionary times, including motivations for purchasing or ceasing health insurance. • An insight into other elements of the market from a consumer perspective, such as switching, changing plan etc. • An update on the employer group scheme market segment and possible insights into future trends. • An update of key trends among consumers
