Health insurance is calculated on age and gender, the older you are, the more expensive it becomes. We need your date of birth to ensure when we generate a quote, and it’s not too close to your birthday. The policy is valid from the day you sign the form and payment has been made. In some cases, weeks may pass from sending a quote and signing the policy, in which time the insured is a year older.
When you are ready to proceed from your quote to full application, we need a signed copy of the following documents:
- Passport Page
- Valid Visa Page
- Bank Book
- If you have a work permit, we need a signed copy of current work permit book
- If you pay monthly, we need you to sign a direct debit form.
Yes, everyone over 50 must undergo a medical. The medical will be scheduled after the policy has been signed and payment made. If you fail the medical, you will be notified by email and payment will be refunded to your bank account. We do not know why you failed the medical as your health records are kept private.
