Health Insurance for Senior Citizens – Why Do You Need It? by KV Gopalakrishnan

May 14, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

When you are more than fifty years of age, it is natural that your  requirements for medical assistance increases. Periodical visits to Medical  centers become important now for safeguarding you from health problems and also  for making it possible for you to recoup should you fall ill. Until now, you had  been keeping mostly healthy and your own medical requirements have either been  paid by your company or organization or effortlessly been managed with your  earnings and savings.

Now that you are contemplating to retire and enjoy life, this is the time to  consider choosing a health insurance policy for senior citizens to take care of  your (and your spouse’s) health-related expenditures. Here are some more points  to consider:

  • Hospital Expenses tend to be skyrocketing these days particularly since most  of us have the tendency to choose treatment in branded Private Hospitals. This  can create a dent on your retirement savings in the event you do not have  medical insurance for senior citizens.
  • For anyone who is preparing to retire and survive on pension or interest  earnings from savings, a medical emergency can lead to a monetary crisis. To  steer clear of this, it is advisable to consider a comprehensive policy of  health insurance.
  • The medical coverage, which you had in the course of your career, generally  ceases when you retire. Suitable Medical insurance can replace this insurance  cover.
  • It may not be a good idea to count on your children to avail their  employee/group insurance for you as this insurance cover would also cease when  they happen to change occupation.
  • Pre existing ailments are excluded from health related insurance for senior  citizens for a period of two to four years in most instances. If you join early,  you can avail the policy even for treatment of existing illness (after the  stipulated period), before the illness develop into a serious one.
  • If you are confused as a result of the countless choices available in the  field of insurance available to senior citizens, do not hesitate to seek  guidance of an independent insurance adviser.
  • In normal instances, for availing insurance, medical checkups are essential  for anyone above 45. In case you are reluctant to undergo such tests, you will  even be able to find policies, which are provided without these tests.  Nevertheless, it is best to declare your pre-existing illnesses truthfully, to  steer clear of rejection of your future claims.
  • Please be aware that recently Government of India has issued some  stipulations (July 1, 2009) which makes it mandatory for all health insurance  companies to refund 50% of the expenses made by you on medical tests related to  the policy, in case they accept your policy.
  • Government of India has also issued guidelines that every health insurance  company has to offer insurance coverage for individuals up to 65 years of age.  There is also a provision for shifting insurers if you are not satisfied with  the current provider.

 

Please keep it in mind that there is a great deal of differences in terms and  conditions in the policies of health insurance for senior citizens provided by  various companies. You will even find companies which even offer “No age  restriction for enrollment” and “assured renewal for life”. Take your time to  choose a suitable health insurance policy which meets your personal needs.

Wish you a happy, healthy and enjoyable time after 50.

Why Do Senior Citizens Need Travel Insurance? by Troy Benning

April 17, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

There are a lot of senior citizens that love to travel and see the world, but  they don’t know how much they need to be covered while their in the air. Senior  travel insurance is really perfect for seniors who love to always travel, as  they will be protected at all times. They will be fully protected while they are  overseas. If they are in need of medical assistance or simply any kind of  assistance, their travel insurance will be there for them to solve the problem.  So basically, they don’t have to worry about anything when they’re on a  vacation. This is a very important coverage that every senior that loves to  travel needs. If you are a senior citizen that loves to travel, you have to make  sure that you are safe if ever an incident occurs.

  • What is senior travel insurance?

 

Senior travel insurance is a type of insurance coverage that will protect the  senior citizen if any incidents occur while they are overseas. The great thing  about this coverage is that you can have a peace of mind to know that no matter  what happens to you, their will be someone to help you. If you need help to find  your lost luggage, or missing travel documents, there will be special assistance  available for you anywhere around the world.

  • Why do senior citizens need travel insurance?

 

Seniors don’t have an idea of what can happen to them while they are  traveling. If you go to a foreign country, you can accidentally eat or drink  something that your body system cannot manage. If something like this does  occur, your senior travel Insurance will cover and take care of you so that you  can continue your vacation.

  • How much is the coverage for senior travel insurance?

 

The premium is based on the actual age of the senior, health status, and the  area they live in. There are rules and  restrictions, but your insurance agent  will be glad to explain to you what they are so you can avoid any delays. They  can do other different types of coverage that will be perfect for you so that  you will be able to find a coverage that meets your budget.

There are many insurance companies that may offer this type of coverage  online. However, you must make sure that you are dealing with the right company  that will provide you a coverage that is actually needed. Try not to deal with  anyone who isn’t licensed or registered with the Department of Insurance, as  they may not provide any coverage for you if you are actually in need of help.  These people only want to collect your monthly premium and will not give any  service whatsoever. Don’t let these con artists take your money, as they are  very manipulative. It is advisable to contact your nearest Department of  Insurance for more information about unlicensed solicitors. This will give you  an idea of what you should do to avoid getting ripped off.

Health Insurance For Senior Citizens by Ram Mohan Susarla

April 12, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

If you are a senior citizen and do not have health insurance, the thought of  having to go to an emergency room in case of illness may be troubling you. You  should have planned for your retirement but if you did not include the details  of having Health Insurance after you retire, you are at the mercy of the ER and  without coverage you may even have to forego treatment. For many people in the  US, health care costs often result in bankruptcy even when they have insurance  because not all illnesses are covered by the policy. When it can happen to the  people who have insurance, it can be a nightmare for those who do not have  it.

In recent months, the issue of health insurance for senior citizens has  received extraordinary coverage and attention in the US because of President  Obama’s plan to have universal health care available to all citizens. This  measure from the Obama administration has drawn critics and supporters alike and  the battle lines are drawn in an increasingly bitter battle. The issue at stake  is whether there should be a public option that would enable the senior citizens  access to health care provided for by the government. The public option does not  guarantee free coverage but includes an option for the employers and the  government to provide for an eventuality.

Senior citizens need healthcare and they need it more than the other age  groups as they need access to quality medical assistance because of their  advancing age that makes them vulnerable to disease and disability. It is for  this reason that medical care in many countries is free for senior citizens and  they have access to the best medical facilities. Likewise, the US should also  have a health care system that provides for its senior citizens and ensures that  they get proper treatment for their various ailments.

In the context of the baby boomers retiring in large numbers and without the  proper tools for some of them to plan adequately for their retirement and health  care, there should be a comprehensive plan for access to medical coverage by the  insurance companies as well as the government. There are several insurance  companies that have special plans for senior citizens as they allow for the  coverage with all facilities provided for them. However, there are other  companies that do not encourage coverage for senior citizens on the grounds that  they are a high risk category and hence the premiums do not justify coverage.  There are some commentators who call for an old age premium to be placed on the  coverage plan so that senior citizens can get coverage at the rates provided by  the insurers, albeit with a premium.

The point that is being made here is that senior citizens better plan for  their retirement when they are in their forties and fifties so that they do not  become a burden on their children and that they retain coverage beyond  retirement and after they are well into their sixties.

Senior Citizens Can See The World With Travel Insurance By W Scott

April 12, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Retirement age can be the golden age of your life! Your children have grown  up and are independent. You do not have a full-time job. There is nothing  holding you back. This is the time of your life to fulfill all your dreams of  traveling the world! There is virtually nothing holding you back!

Know The Ins And Outs Of Travel Insurance

Senior citizen travel insurance is vitally important when planning any trip.  A travel insurance policy helps to protect you against unforeseen circumstances,  such as trip cancellations. There are numerous travel insurance firms that offer  great packages for senior citizens who are 65 and older. There are even policies  these days that provide for those who are 50 and above.

Senior citizen travel insurance is provided in two formats; annual travel or  single trip coverage. Annual travel is ideal for individuals who take a variety  of vacations over the course of the year. Single trip coverage is, as the name  implies, for a single travel event. Coverage details vary from company to  company. Receive quotes from several different travel insurance companies.  Compare each policy in detail to find the one that suits individual needs at an  affordable price.

Choose An All Inclusive Travel Insurance Package

Senior citizen travel insurance packages provide overall coverage for low  risk individuals. A good senior citizen travel insurance package will include  coverage for luggage theft or loss. Some packages also provide cover for medical  costs, including medical assistance or emergency services, which may be incurred  while on holiday.

Be sure to review your travel insurance policy in full. Ensure that you  understand every aspect of your travel plan. It must provide full financial  protection for any mishap that occurs while on holiday.

Look Before You Leap!

It is always wise to carefully review each portion of a senior citizen travel  insurance policy. Do not feel rushed. Do not feel intimidated or overwhelmed.  This is an entitled right when reviewing any insurance policy. A travel  insurance policy is no different. Ensure each portion of the policy pertains to  individual travel coverage needs. In the event that it does not, move on to  another insurance policy or insurance agency.

An often unmentioned fact about insurance policies is that the document is  considered a legal agreement. This means that in a court of law the terms and  conditions presented in the policy are legally binding. Obtain clarification of  anything that is not easily understood up front. Ask as many questions as  necessary until all aspects of the travel insurance policy are clear. Anything  not understood should be clarified by an insurance agent. If an agent is not  willing to do so, simply find one who will.

Senior citizen travel insurance is not intended to restrict travel  intentions. Rather, it is a sound financial decision providing protection and  peace of mind for senior citizens. With policy in hand, a senior citizen is  ready to explore the four corners of the world.

William Scott has authored a number of articles on holiday insurance. His site http://HolidayInsuranceTips.com, offers further  information on selecting the right senior citizen travel insurance  [http://www.holidayinsurancetips.com/category/senior-citizen-travel-insurance]
