Under what conditions, existing diseases  will be covered for Elders?

    What I mean elders, above 50.

    1. Yes , then my comment applies them , health insurance is someting you need to plan well in advance . not in case of emergencies of problem arises!

    What do you mean by elders here ? Is it senior citizens ?

    If you are reffereing to very old citizens , then yes , all the preexisting desieases are not included , thats very valid thing from business point of view
