Last week The Catholic Leader reported how NIB refused to cover Mr Mahoney’s operation even though he joined NIB more than eight years ago with family cover for himself, his wife Jodie and their four children.
“They told me my plan is no longer offered, and it won’t cover me in a private hospital,” he said.
“When I inquired as to what the current plans covered, they told me that if I was on any of their current plans, I would be covered.”
