Looking For Senior Insurance

There's a thread in one of my yahoogroups about health coverage for the above 55. We all know that the elderly suffer more health problems than the younger set, however, this is also the time that they are starting to retire.

Not all HMOs cover senior citizens precisely because they have higher risk to get sick and hospitalized, which, from a business standpoint, is certainly not good. I am, however, still trying to see if there is an affordable option for seniors (checking out health insurance in NC right now) because I'm thinking that my mom may need coverage. I was told that Caritas can cover people up to 70 years old but the premiums are higher. That's still worth looking into.
