You MUST apply for cover for any other pre-existing medical condition(s) that are not described below, even if you no longer receive treatment for them and you do not require any additional cover.

 

How To Apply For Cover For A Pre-Existing Medical Condition

To add a pre-existing medical condition(s), you MUST let us know at the time you buy your policy and complete medical screening. We will ask you some questions about your health and then determine whether we can offer you cover and if so, on what terms. This process can be completed online while purchasing your policy or over the phone.

Depending on your condition, we may decline to cover you, limit the amount of cover, exclude specific medical condition and/or agree to provide cover for an additional premium.

Each condition that we agree to cover will be noted on your certificate of insurance after you pay any applicable additional premium. You are not covered unless the condition is noted on your certificate of insurance.

We will only pay for treatment that was not expected at the time we agreed to insure you.
