In celebration of the triumphant 60 years, Sri Lanka Insurance introduces the ‘Medi 60’ exclusive medical insurance for senior citizens to cover an array of health insurance needs. The product was launched as a tribute to the senior generation for their valuable contribution towards the economic progress of Sri Lanka and recognising their limited access to health insurance due to age constraints.

As the private sector pension and savings schemes are fragmented and have limited coverage, social protection for the elderly is weak. Due to the high dependency and not having arrangements to cover health and medical expenses, senior citizens are a highly vulnerable consumer group.

Being excluded from insurance due to the age limitations those who have crossed 60 years of age and fall in the senior citizen age segment are more susceptible to health disorders that require serious medical intervention, making health insurance cover for senior citizens an absolute must-have. 

The ‘Medi 60’ Health Cover enables senior citizens to reimburse medical charges, including hospital and surgery costs and medicinal expenses. Senior citizens between the age of 60 and 70 are now eligible to apply for this cover, while the policy can be renewed until the policyholder reaches 80 years of age. Moreover, policyholders also receive attractive discounts for laboratory tests, medicine delivery, and free wellness programmes in collaboration with ayubo.life.

The insurance policy covers a wider array of health insurance-related expenses including hospital room, nursing home charges, and medicine expenses and fees of the doctors covered under the inpatient hospitalisation benefits. Further coverage is extended to 136 day care procedures.
