Which Health Insurance policy should I buy for my senior citizen parents

I want to buy a medical policy for my mother, father and me. I cannot decide whether to go for a health insurance or a medi-claim policy. I am looking for something that can help me cover hospital and major medical expenses. My parents are senior citizens (65yrs). I am getting very mixed reactions for the same. Please help me with: a) the difference between health insurance vs mediclaim, b) which one should I consider, considering my parents are senior citizens. Annual premium limit is not an issue. Please suggest?
