We are delighted to introduce a new and innovative product benefit: 60+ Care.
Effective 26 September 2016, senior Gold and Platinum plan customers who have selected the International Outpatient module will be provided with outpatient cover for five common pre-existing conditions.

60+ Care provides coverage for certain pre-existing conditions, allowing customers to maintain their condition and lead a healthier lifestyle. We believe that the new 60+ Care benefit, coupled with the fact that there are no age restrictions on our plans, makes Cigna Global Health Options a very competitive option for senior clients.
60+ Care benefit overview
The five conditions included in 60+ Care are:

Type 2 diabetes
Osteoporosis /Osteopenia
Arthritis, joint or back pain

The 60+ Care benefit is available to customers who:

Are aged 60 years or older (including those who are turning 60 years old within the policy year);
