The Reilly File and VHI

The Minister also confirmed he was to express concern to the board of
the State-owned VHI when he called them in the new year over the
company dropping cover for procedures aimed primarily at older
patients from its more popular plans.

He pointed to the VHI removing cover for hip replacements from its
Plan B, which he said was the most popular with people over 50. “I
believe they are trying to segment the market and it is undermining
community rating and I am not happy about that.” Dr Reilly said the
VHI’s move was aimed at “directly trying to manipulate the market”. (

Minister – The solution is to fire the board of the company you own.
Very simple really!
