The Big Health Insurance Switch Amasses 4.6 Million Euro Health Insurance Buying Power On The First Day Of The Campaign
More than 4,000 people have now joined the Big Health Insurance Switch in the first day, making it one of Ireland’s fastest growing consumer campaigns.
After the success of the Big Energy Switch, consumers are once again flocking to join a people power campaign to do something positive about rising household bills.
To put the Health Insurance buying power of 4,000 consumers in to context:
- Based on the average consumer’s Health Insurance bill of €1,150 annually
- Just the first day of registrants for the campaign have a cumulative Health Insurance purchasing power of almost €4.6 million annually.
Amassing €4.6 million worth of health insurance buying power in 1 day is yet more evidence that consumers are furious about spiralling health insurance costs.
“4,000 consumers in the first day is an overwhelming response from the public, and just goes to show how serious people are about tackling the Private Health Insurance affordability crisis in Ireland.” said Director of Campaigns Sarah Ryan.
“People power has unlocked discounts in Electricity in Ireland already this year, we believe we can apply the same rule in Health Insurance to unlock more affordable health insurance offers in Ireland for the first time,”
“After being heavily involved in politics for the last number of years as a councillor and as a candidate, and running in these past local elections its very clear to me that one of the big bill stressors in peoples lives is health insurance,”
“I signed on as the Director of Campaigns of One Big Switch because I could see just how massively frustrated with these costs people are, and this is a real opportunity to create some real affordability in the industry for the first time in a long time’
