    Default Health Insurance

    I am looking for a Health Insurance plan. I am 80 years old and in good health. Can anyone give me requirements and cost of a plan. Any and all replies would be appreciated. Thanks, Luperon Gringo

    Hopefully you will get some better responses than this-------you cannot get health insurance if you are over 70. That is my experience and I will be watching this thread to see if things have changed.

    On a brighter note,- the cost of health services is extremely reasonable.

    I suggest that you find reputable people that deal with this and can answer your questions.

    Angie at EPS in Sosua has insurance plans. Pedro Clisante Street # 13 809-571-3451. Angie knows her products and I feel can best to advise you. She speaks English.

    We still use/changed our U.S. insurance provider at a rather large discount being that live in the D.R., but covers us world wide.

    Good luck.

    You can get it in some circumstances of you had insurance at an earlier age, or work for a company with a group plan.

    But 80 is going to be a tough find.

    Our group has a member who turned 70 and his rates went up significantly. But he has insurance.

    I buy International coverage from IMGlobal....covers me everywhere

    Google them....but 80 might be a push

    I don't know of any major health insurer here that insures people over 70. I have Universal and they won't even allow anyone over 65 to even upgrade or change their policy.

    Palic does our group, but you have to join before you are 70. And policies arew underwritten with pre-existing conditions excluded.

    Thanks to all for the info. I feel really good, wake up every morning pain free, here's hoping I won't need it.
