    IT is reporting that:
    The Government is also likely to order that holders of private health insurance will receive no special privileges for hospital admissions during the crisis.

    Sources say the health service will operate essentially as a “one-tier” system, with admission to hospital decided solely on clinical need.

    Which would be the correct action.

      As a holder/payer of the most basic of basic base level VHI, I agree that I should not get any privileges in this time of crisis.

        RTE: 16:26 “The State will take control of the private hospitals for the duration of the emergency”

    govt pays 350

      ger – what is your point?

      Ireland: €231+€350 = €581

      “Elsewhere in Europe employee gets 578 or more”.

      581 > 578

    I’ve got an idea of what is being announced at 4pm and it rhymes with flocktown….

    And if a person had a take home pay that is less than 350/week, they will now get more than their normal wage.

    Those damn blushirt fascists helping the lowest paid!
