I had BUPA (now named Aetna) for 6 years. Can recommend it, for those under age 70.

During those years, I had only one claim, a big one -- major surgery with 2 weeks in hospital -- and they paid in full with no problem at all.

BUT ... As soon as I turned 70 years old, they said goodbye to me due to old age. No renewal possible. I'm now without medical insurance.

I signed on with AETNA (BUPA) before my 65th birthday. While the premium has gone up 3% a year, they have been very good. I was 70 at my last renewal and will be 71 at the next. AETNA has implied I can renew again with the traditional 3%. Premium now is B10,700. a month.
