HEALTH DECLARATION

 

FOR UK TRAVEL ONLY

 

If you are only travelling within the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man during your trip, it is a condition of this policy  that you can comply with the following:
1. You are fit to travel and undertake your planned trip.
2. Following any claim investigation, your doctor confirms they would have agreed with or recommended your travel plans when you took out this policy, booked your trip or at the time you travelled (whichever is later).
3. You are not travelling with the purpose of having medical treatment or a consultation.
4. You are not awaiting the outcome of any medical tests or an appointment at a medical facility for any medical investigations.
If you are unsure whether we will be able to provide cover for your medical condition(s), please contact the Customer Service team on 01903 235042 for further advice.

FOR TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF THE UK

You will not be covered for any claims arising as a direct or indirect result of a pre-existing medical condition if, in the 12 months before taking out this policy or booking your trip (whichever is later), you:
• were referred for tests, investigations, treatment or surgery, or were awaiting the results of any referral;
• attended or were due to attend a hospital or clinic as an out-patient or in-patient;
• consulted a medical practitioner for a medical condition; or
• received treatment, including prescribed medication;

unless the condition(s) has (have) been declared to and accepted by us in writing.

You should contact the Medical Screening Team by calling them on 02392 419897 if (a) you need to declare a medical condition; (b) you are unsure whether a medical condition needs to be declared or not.

In the event that you are not accepted for cover having been screened, we may be able to offer you alternative cover. Please CLICK HERE

 

CHANGE IN MEDICAL CIRCUMSTANCES AFTER THE DATE THE POLICY IS ISSUED

If your health changes after taking out this policy and before your trip, you do not need to tell us about the changes, as long as your doctor has confirmed that you are fit to travel. Medical condition(s) that you declared, which we are able to cover, are shown in the ‘Medical Screening Declaration’ that we will send to you. You need to check this information carefully and contact us if there is anything wrong or if you need to declare any other conditions. Please let us know within 14 days and be aware that any changes to the original declaration, particularly if declaring another medical condition, could affect our decision to cover you, or may mean an extra premium has to be paid. Based on any extra medical information you provide, we will confirm if cover can be offered for your declared medical condition(s), and/or if an extra premium needs to be paid. If an extra premium is required, cover will not start until this has been paid and we have issued written confirmation.
