Heart disease is one of the UK's biggest killers. It affects millions of people each year. But one of the hidden issues surrounding heart disease and other health conditions is the fact that many travellers with heart disease are charged considerably more than others when it comes to travel insurance.
Medical costs abroad can be very expensive and, without adequate insurance cover, you can end up facing financial ruin if you suffer from a health-related problem while abroad.
There are numerous different options to help you choose the right pre-existing travel insurance and the best medical travel cover available in the market today. The good thing about travelling abroad when you are fully insured, but perhaps not in the best of health, is that you can relax and unwind while away without having to worry about issues such as whether or not you are covered should something should happen.
Something to bear in mind when looking for relevant travel insurance to cover a specific health condition is to remember that you should always tell the truth when making an application for insurance. If you do not reveal your full state of health and make a claim on your insurance at a later date, it could be invalid and you'd be left to cover full medical and repatriation costs back to the UK.
In order to make an accurate assessment of your risk, an insurance company will ask for your medical history in order to tailor the insurance to your specific case.
