Health Insurance going up

With the new that VHI are set to rise their prices by an average of 3%, due to private health insurance been charged more for beds in a public hospital. I cannot see how this and other hikes due to government polices(reduce tax relief on health insurance) is going to save money for the HSE or the state. The only things it is going to do is make more people depend on the HSE/State to pay for hospital bills as they will not be able to afford insurance, and it will make waiting times at public hospitals even longer.
