Pre-existing Medical Conditions

Preexisting travel insurance

 

Medical claims abroad can be expensive. If you have pre-existing medical conditions, please let us know and we can confirm whether we are able to offer cover.

 

What are pre-existing medical conditions?

They include conditions that have been treated in the past and may be currently stable but may be exacerbated by the travel. This may include conditions treated many years ago. Travel insurance only covers overseas medical events that are unforeseen. Medical conditions that were pre-existing at the time of the policy being issued are not covered, unless they are a condition that we expressly agree to cover.

If you have a pre-existing medical condition that is not covered, we will not pay any claims arising from, related to or associated with that condition.

Before you can purchase the policy, you must contact the insurance company to declare any pre-existing medical conditions. You can call one of our friendly team on 1800 426 439.
