Appointment sought for Voluntary Health Insurance (VHI) Board – Ireland

The Voluntary Health Insurance Board (VHI), trading as VHI Healthcare, is a not-for-profit semi-State body which is the State’s largest provider of private health insurance. The Board was established at a time when a substantial percentage of the population, whose income was above a certain level, had no entitlement to free or partially free medical or surgical services. Since that time, eligibility for public health and personal social services has been significantly extended and the private health insurance market has been opened to competition. There are at present three other privately owned companies providing private health insurance and competing with VHI in the open market.
