_________________________________________________________

Most standard holiday company insurance policies will not cover pre-existing medical conditions. However there are specialist insurance companies that will do so.

Prior to applying for travel insurance you should contact your doctor for written permission as most insurance companies will not provide coverage if you are travelling against your doctor’s orders. The insurance company will usually ask you to go through a medical screening process.

 Always disclose any pre existing medical conditions. Failure to do so could invalidate any subsequent claim.

From the 1st January 2006 the EHIC can be used to cover any necessary medical treatment due to either an accident or illness. If you are a UK resident, you are entitled to medical treatment that becomes necessary, at reduced cost or sometimes free, when temporarily visiting a European Union (EU) country, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. Only treatment provided under the state scheme is covered.

However, to obtain treatment you will need to take a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you.

For more information visit: EHIC or call 0845 605 0707.
