Health premium rise less than forecast

The annual health insurance premium for an adult is set to rise by an average €79 this year, NOS TV reports today. The increase is less than the government had forecast.

The increase means the average cost of a year’s basic coverage is €1142. People covered by collective insurance policies through their work will pay slightly less.
