The European Union “Third Non-Life Insurance Directive” (“the Directive”) sets out the requirements for the internal market for Member States regarding non-life insurance, including health insurance.2 It allows individual Member States to adopt these requirements in a manner most appropriate to their particular national legal systems and national healthcare systems. The Directive was transposed into Irish law through the enactment of the Health Insurance Acts, which legislated for the four principles of private health insurance in Ireland, namely, community rating, open enrolment, lifetime cover and minimum benefit.
