How to Get Travel Insurance Whilst Awaiting Surgery

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Guest Writer

Being on a waiting list for surgery doesn’t mean you can’t take that trip to Spain or Mauritius, or go skiing in the Alps – it just means you need the right travel insurance.  You may find that many other insurers may refuse you cover if you’re awaiting surgery, but we won’t, we’re different.

We can cover you for over 30 medical procedures*, just as long as you are not travelling against the advice of your doctor. And if you’re awaiting a type of surgery not on our list, fear not – we can still offer you a policy, we will just have to exclude your pre-existing conditions.

We can cover you if you’re awaiting any of the following operations:

• Adenoidectomy

• Arthroscopy of knee
• Arthroscopy of hip
