My wife and I have just had out MM2H visa approved. We plan to arrive in Malaysia in October, and live in Penang. We are from the UK and know Malaysia well already.
I am concerned about the medical insurance situation. I am 60 and my wife is 69 (but doesn't look it!!). We are both in good health for our age, but - like nearly everyone over 60 - not free of pre-existing conditions (nothing serious).
I am aware that it is possible to people aged over 60 to live in Malaysia on the MM2H programme without any medical insurance - and to "pay as you go". I could afford the risk of doing that, but a major issue could still be a financial blow - even though medical costs in Malaysia are lower than in the UK.
Just wondered if any forum members have any views or advice on this option, please? Also, any tips on the best insurers to choose for cover in Malaysia only please?
Many thanks indeed.
