Assistance with Top-Up Health Insurance
Wednesday 05 February 2014
The sums payable to assist with complementary top-up health insurance have been increased this year.
If you have a complementary ‘top-up’ health insurance policy you may be entitled to assistance with the insurance premiums.
The assistance is provided through L’aide à l’acquisition d’une complémentaire santé (ACS).
The level of the assistance depends on your age, but since January 2014 for a couple aged at least 60 years it is €500 per person, equivalent to €1,000 a year for a couple!
Entitlement to support is subject to a test of resources. The current income thresholds are shown below. They will be revised again in July 2014.
| ACS Income Thresholds|
|Each Additional Person||+€4,640|
