Why do you need travel insurance for epilepsy?
When you’re looking for travel insurance for an upcoming trip, you may need to declare your epilepsy alongside any other medical conditions. If you don’t, you may end up with a policy that doesn’t fit your needs, so if something goes wrong while you’re away, you may not be properly covered.
A health insurance policy that provides specific cover for epilepsy takes away any worry, leaving you confident in the knowledge you’ll be covered should anything happen. What’s more, Medical Travel Compared makes the process of finding appropriate cover as simple for you as possible; comparing prices from over 40 leading health insurance providers in one place.
Unfortunately, as with many medical conditions, most standard travel insurance policies don’t include specific cover for epilepsy, even though almost 1 in 100 people in the UK have epilepsy.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t get cover that does. Medical Travel Compared can help you find a policy that protects you against the various costs you might incur as a result of your epilepsy, so you can concentrate less on worrying about how you’ll cope financially if something goes wrong and more on enjoying your trip.Get a quote
