Comparing travel insurance after surgery
is really important as otherwise you might not be able to get medical attention costs reimbursed when you’re on holiday as this recent surgery is regarded as a pre-existing medical condition that needs to be disclosed.
A lot of people worry, that after having any type of surgery or surgical procedure, that they may not be able to find affordable travel insurance, however many are surprised to find this isn’t actually the case.
By using our travel insurance comparison service, you will be able to find affordable cover, specifically designed to cover you after surgery, be it heart bypass surgery, cardiac valve surgery or a cataract removal procedure.
Provided you have been given the ‘fit to fly’ by your doctor after your surgery, we should be able to find a policy to suit you.
The most common surgical procedures we encounter are:
• Heart bypass surgery
• Coronary stents
• Insertion of a pacemaker / defibrillator
• Cardiac valve surgery (such as heart valve repair or replacement surgery)
• Joint replacement or resurfacing surgery
• Organ transplants (such as kidney transplant surgery, liver transplant surgery and heart transplant surgery)
It is important to declare to the insurer whether you have had surgery or a procedure for any condition, particularly if it has been within a 24 month period.
Travel insurers need to have accurate disclosure of things like recent surgery to be able to accurately assess their risk. Failure to make this disclosure will mean the policy is null and void and could lead to the loss of the premiums too.
Don’t worry, just because you disclose your recent surgery doesn’t mean the premium will be high!
There’s no need to panic about the costs, by using a specialist travel insurance comparison website you can keep the costs under control and have peace of mind to enjoy your holiday without the risk of huge medical bills.
