Insurance coverage for Older Workers

Question

Hi All,

We have some staff who will be reaching 70 years old, and we understand that there are no current insurers that provides any insurance to cover these senior workers. While the rest of the staff are all covered by the company insurance, how does your company care for this group of seniors and not let them feel left out?

I do not have any employees at that age group yet but with the ageing population, we will all come to this someday. I suppose all these senior workers are Singaporean? If they are, can the company subsidise their medishield premium?
