Families with senior citizens are searching for ‘reasonable’ cost medical cover for their elderly while many health insurance companies are either not taking the high risk age group or are charging high rates.
While health insurance is becoming mandatory in different emirates, families with aged people are facing a paradox of either paying high premiums or sending their elderly home where there may be no one to take care of them – if insurance is refused.
Speaking to Emirates 247, residents who have aged parents living with them, said taking a healthcare insurance package for their 60-plus parents is a tough task.
