Description:
The Health Insurance Authority (the Authority) commissioned two previous research studies (in 2002 and 2005) to assess consumer attitudes towards private health insurance, their knowledge of the market, the behaviour of private health insurance consumers and other aspects of the health insurance market. In 2007 the Authority commissioned Insight Statistical Consulting (Insight) to carry out a qualitative and quantitative research study of the private health insurance (PHI) market in Ireland with the following specific requirements: Provide a clearer perspective of the private health insurance market, including; − attitudes of consumers towards the private health insurance market, − information on the role of employer-based group schemes, − consumer knowledge of the private health insurance market, − switching behaviour of private health insurance consumers, − motivations for purchasing private health insurance, and − reasons why non-consumers are not covered and the conditions under which they may enter the market. identify key trends over the three surveys conducted in 2002, 2005 and 2007, identify effects of recent changes in the health insurance market (e.g. acquisition of BUPA Ireland by the Quinn Group, commencement of risk equalisation). This document presents independent research conducted on behalf of The Health Insurance Authority by Insight Statistical Consulting. The material presented in this report does not necessarily represent the views or opinions of The Health Insurance Authority.
