Frequently asked questions

Am I covered if I am pregnant?

Pregnancy is not deemed to be an illness and therefore is only covered if complications arise with the pregnancy. However note that airlines may not carry a pregnant woman flying around her due date. There is no cover under the policy if an airline refuses to board the passenger. 

What is a policy excess?

Most sections of the policy carry an excess. This is the first amount of any claim that you will have to pay. The amount may vary depending on the level of cover you have chosen. It is applicable per person per section. The excess will be reduced to NIL if you have used an EHIC (Formally E111) to reduce your medical expenses bill or if you have paid to add the Excess Waiver upgrade to your policy.

What is a Pre-existing Medical Condition?

Any medical condition where you have been prescribed medication, including repeat prescriptions, or received treatment or attended a GP or a specialist as an outpatient or inpatient in the last 2 years or for which you are currently on a waiting list for treatment or investigation; and

Any illness for which you have received a terminal prognosis or any heart, heart-related or circulatory condition; or any respiratory condition; any stress, anxiety, depression or any other psychological condition; any cancerous condition; or any cerebral condition; any undiagnosed symptoms (i.e. symptoms for which you are awaiting investigations/consultations, or awaiting results of investigations, or where the underlying cause of the symptoms has not been established).
