Travel Insurance for medical conditions

Post by JB1 » Tue Oct 27, 2020 7:54 pm

I'm struggling to get a quote for travel to the UK as I have a pre existing medical condition. Anyone got any recommendations? Abbeygate have declined, as have Atlantic. Online searches seem to be for UK residents. Joyce

Strictly speaking, if you are a UK Citizen living abroad, you are not entitled to use the NHS. However, if you have the EHI card then any medical attention will be covered by the NHS. Perhaps all you need is cancellation policy?

I have previously obtained travel insurance with cover for a pre-existing condition though Status Insurance.

You could try calling UK 0808 164 1798 to see if they can help.

I think I would want to know exactly who I was calling before making any phone call !!
