The Government’s plan to sell private health insurance across the island is expected to deliver on the promise of a single market.
However, it is expected the scheme will only be sold in the “right hands” and will be only available to those who qualify for it.
This will make it difficult for those with pre-existing conditions and those without to purchase coverage for their family members or for their sick loved ones.
It is expected that only about 3,000 of the 8,000 eligible households will qualify.
This is because of the fact that the Government will only sell the scheme in the next two years, so the scheme is only available in a limited number of homes.
This means that, at this stage, the Government is selling a very small number of people a service that can make a huge difference in their lives.
However there are signs that there are a number of potential winners.
It seems likely that the majority of people who qualify will end up getting coverage for at least one year.
But the Government’s scheme is expected not to be available to the majority, so it is likely that many people who are not eligible will not get it.
The Government is also expected to limit the number of individuals who will be able to buy the scheme.
It has already ruled out selling it to individuals who are at least 30 and over, but the Government wants to give more leeway to families and individuals with pre or severe conditions.
This could mean that people with pre and severe conditions may be able buy coverage for up to two years after they are eligible.
