I live in Germany and here, if someone does not work or is NOT on jobseeker status, he or she should pay their own health insurance. Its actually illegal not paying some form of personal health insurance.
My question is if this is the same in Ireland. Am I obliged by law to buy for myself a health insurance (usually private but can also be one of the public funds)?
Is it an obligation?
(yes I know as EU citizen I can carry with me the EHIC card but that at some point does expire)
