Senior Citizen - Super Top Up Options

reply Share
28 Apr, 2021 by  Arshad Syed

Hello Team

My parents aged(64F & 72M) are having insurance with new india assurance family floater plan for 10yr now for sum insured of 5 lakhs. With coverage looking small, I started evaluating and my research suggest that taking new plan to have extended cover will be more expensive and top-up is best way to go.

Request your guidance on what would be ideal options. HDFC-Ergo offered only for age upto 66 and premium for 20L top up is 9K per annum. They don't have more than 66.

Your views appreciated.

Yes, it is better to enhance health insurance coverage for your parents via a super top-up plan. You can look at stand alone Health Insurers like Manipal Cigna, Aditya Birla Health, Religare & Star Health for options. They usually offer a wider variety of health plans (including top-ups) at all ages.

You can prune your choice using the following suggestions -

1) It's advisable to buy separate super top-up plans for your father & mother. This could save some premium for you every year.

2) If your base cover is for 5 L, choose a deductible option of about 4 L in your super top-up option. This ensures that your out of pocket expenses are minimal in case of bigger claims.

3) Compare your product options on aggregator websites like Policybazaar or take the help of your Insurance advisor.

Stay Insured.
