We have announced the exciting news that the Irish Life Group has agreed to acquire Aviva Health and take full 100% ownership of GloHealth. We plan to combine these two businesses to create a new force in the market to the benefit of over 2 million health insurance customers.

This is good news for all of our customers as we’re combining two businesses with strong reputations for providing innovation and customer value. Backed by the customer focus and expertise of Ireland’s leading provider of life insurance, pensions and investments the aim is to create the benchmark for health insurance in Ireland.

The acquisitions, which are subject to regulatory approval, should be completed in Q3, 2016. We will keep you updated as this progresses. In the meantime existing GloHealth and Aviva Health customers will continue to enjoy the benefits of their existing health insurance plans and the same customer support as normal.

It is business as usual here at Irish Life and this announcement will not affect the quality service we provide to you.
