Why do I need health insurance for senior citizens?

If you’re a senior citizen, it’s a good idea to have health insurance – especially if you’re retiring or already live abroad. As you enter your later years you may be more predisposed to medical conditions and the issues that arise from aging. And if you’re living abroad, you could run into problems, depending on the local medical system.

You may receive expensive medical bills, struggle with language differences, and you’re subject to that country’s rules and regulations. As a foreign national, you will likely not be entitled to free or subsidised healthcare.

We understand everyone’s needs are different, so our Seniors plan features a wide remit of care to ensure most bases are covered.

Our health insurance for seniors offers the same quality service as all Cigna Healthcare products.

Both travel medical insurance and international health insurance are both intended for people spending time away from their home country. But each product is different. Travel insurance covers emergency treatment when you’re visiting another country. International health insurance is comprehensive health care designed for those relocating to another country for a longer period of time.
