Buying Advice from the Pros

Here are some time-tested nuggets of wisdom from the desk of our in-house insurance gurus

Coverage – The Higher the Better

Advancing age makes you more susceptible to illnesses. Thus, having a health insurance policy after 60 is vital. Ensure the policy offers maximum coverage and has little or no exceptions and sub-limits.

Waiting Periods – The Lower the Better

Insurers cover expenses for pre-existing conditions only after the relevant waiting periods are over. It is wise to choose a plan with shorter waiting periods.

As Far as Possible, No Co-payment

Most senior citizen health insurance plans come with a co-payment clause, which means a certain percentage of the total claim amount will have to be borne by the policyholder. 20% or lower is ideal.

What is a Senior Citizen mediclaim Policy?

  • Waiting periods – There’s an initial waiting period of 30 days that you will have to serve before getting covered under your mediclaim policy. Besides, there will be a 3- to 4-year waiting period in case of pre-existing illnesses. Look for plans with a lower waiting period.
  • Co-payment clause – Most medical insurance for senior citizens have the co-payment clause.
