Most people with higher cholesterol tend to have it under control with medication and because it’s not a condition you would have to deal with on a day to day basis, patients often don’t declare it to their travel insurance provider because they think it’ll lead to unnecessary higher premiums.
However, with Insurancewith medical travel insurance, we don’t hike up premiums unless the risk of you going away with your condition has an amount of risk attached to it, so adding high cholesterol shouldn’t greatly increase the cost of your insurance. It’s absolutely essential to travel with insurance which covers your condition no matter what type of medical situation you have. Should something happen whilst you were away that was linked to high cholesterol and you hadn’t declared the condition to your travel insurer, any travel insurance you might have bought could be declared invalid and you could end up receiving an expensive medical bill.
Whether you’re looking for a single trip, longstay or an annual multi-trip policy, we can help provide you with extensive medical cover insuring you for any conditions you might have, including high cholesterol. Our bespoke medical screening system allows us to tailor the quote to the person, enabling us to fully assess your individual risk, and offer you a fair and affordable quote.
Insurancewith have years of experience in insuring those with medical conditions, so we understand the complications and additional conditions which can go hand-in-hand with having high cholesterol, so other conditions such as previous strokes, narrowing of arteries and heart attacks can also be included in your cover.
Should something unexpected happen whilst you’re away, we have the team and the expertise to guide you through your situation calmly and efficiently, allowing you to focus on recovering without having the hassle or stress of thinking about money.
