HI... I AM 65 AND MY WIFE IS 53. WE BOTH WANT TO TAKE CRITIAL ILLNESS + MEDICAL INSURANCE. I DID SEE ENTRY AGE LIMIT UPTO 80 AND SO ON. BUT I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS. DOES THE INSURANCE PERIOD IF TAKE INSURANCE AT 65 ENDS AT 80 OR IT JUST MEANS MAX. ENTRY LEVEL SHOULD BE 80 AND INSURANCE WILL CONTINUE BEYOND 80 AND TILL END.
