Insurance product for the elderly (human age)
The twilight age turned out to have its own appeal for insurance companies. Some insurance companies make special products for these seniors. Through this product, it is expected that the parents are more awake and assured of their health so there is no need to worry when having to pay for treatment in the hospital at an exorbitant price when sick.

The insurance company providing opportunities for seniors provides two of the following different types of insurance:

  • Stand-alone health insurance or pure health insurance such as Allianz insurance products, AXA Insurance (General), Cigna and Sinar Mas,  
  • Life Insurance Link Unit with additional benefits (rider) in the form of health protection such as only Manulife (MVP – Manulife Value Protector)
