Do I need to declare high cholesterol as a pre-existing medical condition?

High cholesterol is considered a pre-existing medical condition and it’s vital you declare it on your insurance policy.

Although having high cholesterol may not affect your physical ability, it can increase the chance of developing other conditions. That’s why it’s essential to declare it on your policy.

Medical treatment abroad can put a large strain on your wallet, from medical repatriation (being flown home as a medical emergency) to hospital stays.

But if the worst happens when you’re away, having proper cover in place can help minimise the stress, and the unnecessary fees that come with medical treatment away from home.

We see it that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right. We’re sure you agree.

After all, having the reassurance that you have the support there when you need it is the key to any happy holiday.
