Why choose private health insurance?

If you don't have pre-existing health conditions and are a high-earner with an annual income of €69,300 or more, it’s likely you’ll pay higher monthly premiums when publicly insured because premiums are based on your income.

However, in the private system, your premiums are based on factors such as your age, health status, and the benefits you want in your coverage. This means that for high-earners without pre-existing medical conditions, private health insurance is often the most favored option.
