Senior Citizen Plan

You could choose United Insurance Senior Citizen policy if you’re 60+, with pre-existing complications or if nobody is willing to insure you. However, if you have other alternatives, this policy could be a letdown, considering, they don't offer the full cover for several diseases and they make you wait 4 years before covering complications arising out of pre-existing illnesses.

What's good here?

co_pay

You’ll never have to split the bill

The insurer will bear the entire cost of treatment (up to the sum insured). You won’t have to pay a single penny. Meaning this policy has no co-payment.

Long waiting period for pre-existing diseases

If you’re already dealing with diabetes, cardiovascular problems or any such illnesses, the insurer will cover all costs arising out of these pre-existing problems only after 4 long years. It could be much shorter you know? Like 2 years perhaps!

What's okay here?

pre_post

Pre & Post hospitalization expenses covered up to a certain limit

No worries if the doctor had to run a host of diagnostic tests before or after hospitalizing you. The insurer has your back. They will cover this amount upto 10% of sum insured for about 30 days before you are hospitalized and 60 days after discharge. This includes the cost of medication by the way.

Some coverage if you are forced to hospitalize at home

The insurer will pay up to 10% of the sum insured if you are forced to hospitalize at home due to a medical condition or the hospital running out of beds. In insurance lingo, they call this a policy with domiciliary cover.

What's lacking here?

restoration

No Restoration Benefit

Some policies will tell you - Even after you claim part of the cover on one occasion, you will have the full cover restored, if you are hospitalized another time during the same year. So if you have a family cover and multiple members of the family are hospitalized in the same year, this feature will come in handy. Unfortunately, this policy offers no such benefit.

ncb

No Bonus for being healthy and not claiming insurance

Some policies offer you extra cover if you go an entire year without claiming your insurance. This policy, however, offers no such benefit.

health_checkup

No free Health Checkups unless you wait 3 years

If you’re planning on getting a full body checkup just to make sure you’re in fine working condition, the insurer will cover the cost once in 3 years. However, just so you know, most insurance policies offer free yearly health checkups.
