There is no escape from sub-limits and co-pay clause because most of the senior citizen policies come wrapped with these. For a coverage without sub-limits, you need to spend more. This is a good policy providing coverage at reasonable rates. If you are looking for a senior citizen policy, you may go with this plan.
