Insurance Age

New research from PruHealth shows

New research from PruHealth shows that the average private medical insurance premium has risen by 37% since 1999. This compares with Retail Price Index inflation of just 12% during the same period. Shaun Matisonn, chief executive of PruHealth commented that the huge increase in premiums was totally unsustainable and that urgent action was needed if the recent downward trend in policyholder numbers was to be reversed.
