Default Travel Insurance for 83 year old

Does anyone have actual experience of travel (health) insurance for anyone travelling to USA. Father-in-law, who is now 83 is coming for 60 days.

Last year, Lloyds covered him for $360 but looks like they are setting their own limit back to 80. Most companies don't cover over 80 but I guess someone must have done this..

I've booked his flight but now might be stuck getting insurance.

Anyone with ACTUAL experience with anyone this age or OLDER?

My 82 year old Nan came to visit us a couple of years ago and I am sure her insurance was through Help The Aged.

That's the problem, they are all pegging now at 80 Even Lloyds which did it last year when he was 82 say that 80 is their limit.

This is getting harder for OAP's to travel - take note....

My parents travelled here May this year and used Lloyds although they booked it November 2004. My father is 82 and my mother 80. Maybe it was because my mum was 80? I know my parents had a hard job trying to find an insurer that didn't cost the earth. Good luck and let us know as If they come over next year as we'll need to do the same.
