Medical screening for breast cancer travel insurance
Medical screening is an important part of our process as it enables insurance providers to determine your medical background and provide you with suitable cover based on this.
Once you declare breast cancer (whether that’s a past diagnosis and remission, or present cycle of treatment) it’s likely that you might be asked a series of questions about the nature of your condition.
For instance, you might be asked about the course of treatment you’re receiving, or if you’re in remission - how long it has been since you got the all-clear. You might even be asked whether cancer has spread to another part of your body.
Of course, the answers you provide will be personal to you, so it’s therefore imperative that you answer as accurately as possible.
What’s typically covered in an insurance policy for breast cancer?
Your travel insurance policy could offer coverage for a variety of different things, including:
- Lost, Stolen or Damaged Personal Belongings - this could include medication you bring with you.
- Emergency Medical Expenses and Repatriation - in the event that you would need to pay-out for a hospital trip, or even full medical evacuation back to the UK.
- Cancellation and Curtailment - the insurance provider will cover you in the event of needing to cancel your holiday or cut it short as a result of your condition.
- Travel Delay - this won’t always be included, check with your provider.
- Personal Liability - if you cause accidental damage to another person or someone else’s property - cover is provided.
Specialist insurance including breast cancer might include further cover in other areas, but generally, these are the types of things you should expect to be included in your policy (so be sure to check as you compare).Get a quote
