  • International Travel insurance for senior citizens

    Filed Under: Blogging
Senior citizens find limited choices and insurance providers willing to offer coverage for international travel. Most of these plans are pretty expensive and sometimes unaffordable by these aged people.

Individuals with pre-existing medical conditions are often charged twice the premiums as compared to young adults. This is because the claims filed in case of any medical complications are also very high during old age as recovery is slower and difficult. Treatments may take longer and the amount of medical attention required is also quite high.

Now that the average life span of individuals has increased, the number of senior citizens in the country has also increased a lot and the insurance demands of this section of people are very high. Exclusion of certain claims for travellers who have crossed the age of 70 is also another problem.

As the trend of parents visiting their children staying in the US increases, the availability of visitors insurance plans for the older people is slowly increasing as the huge players come with certain insurance plans which are beneficial and affordable for this section.
