VMware pays 100% of the premium costs for the VHI Company Plan PMI 1811 for you and your eligible dependents. Please note that you are liable for any tax associated with this benefit. You may choose to upgrade your cover (to Company Plan Extra L2 or another VHI plan), however please note that you are liable for any additional cost associated with this upgrade and Vhi Healthcare will invoice you directly for the difference. VMware shall not pay for any loading, excesses or additional premium imposed (such as Lifetime Community Rating) as a result of any special circumstances or conditions of or affecting any such persons. Please note if you are over 35 and enrol in the plan without previous healthcare coverage in Ireland you will be required to pay an additional levy known as the Lifetime Community Rating Charge direct to VHI Healthcare. The levy is 2% of the premium multiplied by each year in age over 35 for a maximum of 10 years.
Coverage for you and your dependents under the Healthcare plan will begin on your first day of active work as a VMware employee or from the month that you select it.
