Senior Citizen Health Insurance

Avail upto ₹75,000 Income Tax benefits under section 80D

Ageing makes you more prone to health conditions and injuries that may not have been an issue in your younger years but now need constant medical attention. This is because older people are more prone to certain diseases and recover more slowly.

These conditions require regular treatments and medications to manage, which can quickly get very expensive. Given rising medical costs, these expenses can eat away at your retirement savings and be financially burdensome. In such times, having a senior citizen mediclaim policy helps.


What Is Senior Citizen Health Insurance?

A senior citizen plan is a type of health insurance plan specifically designed to offer financial assistance to people over the age of 61. It covers medical treatments and procedures commonly prescribed to senior citizens.

According to the IRDAI, insurance providers can not reject health insurance applications and renewals from senior citizens without valid reasons such as:

  • Fraud.
  • Misrepresentation.
  • Moral Hazard (The intention to claim money from the insurance provider on death by committing fraud).

Why Do You Need Separate Health Insurance For Senior Citizens In India?

While you may think that the savings you have accumulated throughout your life will be enough to tide you over in your retirement years. The corpus may run out earlier than you think.

Here are some reasons why you should consider getting senior citizen health insurance.


Rising Medical Costs

Factors like rising medical costs, inflation, and medical emergencies due to unforeseen accidents or injuries can quickly deplete your savings. Investing in health insurance for senior citizens can be your way of shielding your savings.

Some of the best mediclaim policies for senior citizens will cover your hospitalisation costs and medical emergencies, so you do not have to worry about paying out of pocket for these expenses.


Critical Illness Cover

With old age, the possibility of injuries and critical illness diagnosis increases significantly. If this is the case, your policy will provide the necessary coverage for treatment


Annual Health Checkups

Physical health becomes an increasingly important factor as you age, significantly affecting your quality of life. Under most plans, senior citizens can avail free annual health checkups to undergo medical screenings regularly.

A benefit to doing this is that diseases are detected in their earlier stages, making them easier to treat, and it reduces out-of-pocket expenses.


Stress-Free Retirement

Medical expenses can be distressing for anyone to pay off, but they can be especially distressing in your retirement years as they can deplete your savings.

Having medical insurance for senior citizens can help alleviate this stress and give you peace of mind by securing your savings, as there is less risk of prematurely depleting your savings.

Easy Claims Process

At Tata AIG, we provide an easy claims process for reimbursements on health insurance for parents above 61. Our online facilities have allowed us to digitise this process, making it more accessible and faster.

To file a claim, you simply need to visit our website, fill out a claims form and upload the required documents. We also provide a claims tracking feature to promote transparency so you stay fully informed throughout the claims process.


Paperless Policies

Another benefit of digitising our processes has allowed us to go fully paperless in our transactions and application processes. So when you apply for a senior citizen mediclaim policy, the application process can be done fully online and in a matter of minutes.

Similarly, for claims processes, you only need to upload the necessary documents onto our site for us to settle your claims. You can also track your claims without needing any physical documentation.


Tax Benefits

This is one of the key benefits of health insurance. Like any other health insurance plan, our senior citizen mediclaim policy makes you eligible for health insurance tax deductions under Section 80D of the Income Tax Law.

As a senior citizen, you are eligible for deductions up to ₹50,000 if you pay the premiums yourself and an additional ₹25,000 if a family member (under 60) insured under the same plan pays the premium instead.

This benefit is applied on renewal for every claim-free year on consecutive renewals with us at Tata AIG. Under your senior citizen health insurance, you can get a maximum cumulative bonus of up to 100% of the sum insured.

We value your privacy and data. Our website is a safe place for you to input your details and complete health insurance premium payments. We promise to keep your personal and payment data 100% secure at all times.


High End Diagnostics

Covers the insured person for the diagnostic tests listed in the policy, on OPD basis, if required as part of a treatment, subject to a maximum Rs. 20,000 (over and above base sum insured) per policy year.

Benefits With Separate Limits (Over and Above the Sum Insured Amount) That Do not Affect the Cumulative Bonus

custom list

Maximum Age of Entry

While some individual health insurance plans provide coverage for people above 61, the minimum entry age for senior plans is 61 years and above.

Thus, before purchasing a senior citizen mediclaim policy, you must check the age of entry to ascertain if you are eligible to buy it.

custom list

Sum Insured

Your senior citizen health insurance plan must have an adequate sum insured. It should cover all your health-related expenses, like preventive health checkups, medications, and hospitalisations, and medical emergencies.

When deciding your sum insured amount, always make sure you account for all your medical expenses and for medical emergencies to ensure adequate coverage.

Cashless Claims

This facility can be claimed only in cases of treatment and hospitalisation at network hospitals and applies to planned and emergency hospitalisations. For a global cover, the cashless facility would be available for in-patient and daycare hospitalisations only and approved on a case-by-case basis.

To process your cashless claim under medical insurance for senior citizens, we must be informed:

  • At least 48 hours before planned treatments, procedures and consultations.
  • Within 24 hours after the hospitalisation or treatment for emergency medical procedures.

Notify the TPA/us 48 hours before any planned hospitalisations/treatments. For emergency hospitalisations, we must be notified 24 hours after the treatment/hospitalisation.

Upon notification, we will check your coverage and eligibility and send an authorisation letter to the provider.

You have to provide the ID card issued to you along with any other information or documentation that is requested by the TPA/us to the network hospital.

If approved, we will directly settle the bill with the network hospital.

In case of a rejection of the cashless claim, you can still apply for a reimbursement claim, as a rejection of cashless claims in no way indicates rejection of the claim itself.

Did Not Find What You Were Looking For?

Understanding Health Insurance Terms

  • Co-Pay If you’d like to lower your health insurance premium, you can opt for co-payment. You can promise to pay a certain percentage of each claim you make against your medical insurance policy, and your insurance provider will take care of the rest. If you’d like your insurance provider to settle the full claim, you can opt-out of co-payment.
  • Deductible This is a fixed amount that the insured individual has to pay towards their medical treatments before they can file a claim with their insurance provider. The deductible is a fixed amount and not a percentage of the total claim amount. Let’s assume that your deductible is INR 5,000. In a policy year, you undergo treatment worth INR 50,000. You have to pay INR 5,000 before you can make a claim for the balance amount of INR 45,000.
  • Pre-Existing Disease If the individual purchasing insurance already suffers from any disease, it is called a pre-existing diseases. The individual can purchase their medical insurance policy, but the pre-existing disease will only be covered after a given waiting period.
  • Sum Insured Your sum insured refers to the maximum amount that your insurance provider will pay in a given policy year. It basically reflects the total value of your policy. You can choose your sum insured when you purchase your health insurance policy. But, you should remember that the amount you choose will directly impact your premium.
  • Waiting Period The waiting period is a specific amount of time during which insured individuals cannot make certain claims against their health insurance policies. There are different waiting periods defined for different issues. The first is the initial waiting period. This is the time you must wait before making a non-accidental claim after purchasing the health insurance policy. The second is a waiting period for pre-existing illnesses. This can range from anywhere between 2 to 5 years. The third waiting period is for specific illnesses. Some health issues such as hernia or ENT disorders will only be covered after a few years of cover. Generally, the waiting period for these issues is 2 years. The final waiting period is for maternity cover. Most health insurance policies will cover maternity expenses only after a few years.
