Problem
Senior citizens tend to become more and more dependent on their family and their medical expenses usually rise as well. Without a proper medical insurance, their medical expenses become a real burden on the family .Premium of Health Insurance has been increasing every year and they cannot afford the rising premium . The Central Government and IRDA should see that the Senior Citizens should get Health Insurance at an affordable premium. Finance Ministry should do away with GST which is 18 % on Premium. They should also subsidize the premium so that Senior Citizens /Pensioners can avail Health facilities and geriatric care wards to be furnished.

Solution
Do away with GST on Health Premium and subsidize the Health Insurance Premium for Pensioners / Senior Citizens .
