If you or your parents are over 60 years old and travelling abroad for a vacation or to visit your children, don’t forget to buy travel insurance for senior citizens.
We all know that old people often have limited regenerative abilities and are more prone to disease, syndromes, and sickness than younger adults. In their case even a simple fall can cause fractures. Hip fractures are a common outcome of such falls and can call for hospitalization and long term medical care and at times can even prove fatal.
Though treatment for such ailments and injuries is available at an affordable cost in India, it can cost a bomb in a country like USA, where medical costs are exorbitant. Inpatient hip fracture care costs $26,000 per episode, which when converted to INR is a whopping INR 15,60,000. Let alone hospitalization, in US a doctor’s consultation fee alone can range from $150-300 (i.e. INR 9,000-18,000). So why not just play safe against such uncertainties and buy travel insurance for senior citizens beforehand.
Buying a comprehensive plan for travel insurance for senior citizens would ensure you are covered against a host of risks that include medical expenses and repatriation (including medical evacuation to a hospital in India pre-approved by claims administrator), personal accident, loss of baggage, delay in baggage arrival, loss of passport, hijack, trip delay, burglary at home and other such exigencies that can ruin your trip.
Also, note that in case of travel insurance for senior citizens the higher the policy maximum, the better it is, depending on your/ your parent’s length of stay, age, and activities.
