Ulcerative colitis travel insurance covers you if you are currently living with ulcerative colitis, or other medical conditions, and wish to travel with peace of mind. This type of insurance covers you for medical emergencies, even those related to COVID-19, which is vital to prevent unexpected medical bills and give you the support you need if you have any medical problems while you are away.
The 146,000 people that have ulcerative colitis in the UK will most likely agree: the condition can be unpredictable. You can never really anticipate when your symptoms are going to flare up. Sometimes you can have a long period of time without symptoms, only to have them appear suddenly when you least expect it. Everyone is different. That’s why with our ulcerative colitis travel insurance you can make sure you are fully covered, just in case you need any emergency medical treatment as a result of your condition.
All other members that are named on your policy are covered for curtailment if you need to come home early as a result of your ulcerative colitis (or any other unforeseen medical event).
If they are with a different insurance provider, you can still add Travelling Companion Cover. That means your travelling companions will still be covered for events that happen to you. Please note, in order for you to be covered for events that happen to your travelling partner, you will need to speak to their insurance provider.
If your medical condition is currently undiagnosed, we are not able to offer cover until you get a diagnosis.
If a doctor does confirm bowel obstruction, you can simply answer ‘yes’ to having had the episode during the questions about your ulcerative colitis.
If you decide to travel within the EU, carrying a European Health Insurance Card can help.
It allows you to get state healthcare at a reduced cost.
But always remember the EHIC does not replace your travel insurance. It won’t cover for you needing to cancel your holiday, or return any lost expenses if you need to come home early because of ulcerative colitis.
Also, while you are entitled to the same healthcare as local residents, it may still include relatively high expenses for treatment. Of course, if you’re travelling outside of Europe, travel insurance becomes even more vital.
We’re pleased to say we can still offer you a quote.
If you are yet to be given a date for your treatment, you have the ability to add the optional extra of Waiting List cover.
Also, be sure to answer that you are on a waiting list for treatment during the initial medical warranty section. That way, you will only be offered quotes which include the option to add Waiting List cover.
You’ll only need to declare ‘ulcerative colitis’ during the medical section.
The questions about ulcerative colitis will ask about medication. However, we’ll only need to know how many different types you’ve been prescribed – rather than the names of your medication.
If you have ulcerative colitis, then you should have a good idea of how to manage your condition. You should also have an idea of how to avoid things that trigger your condition. Going on holiday should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. However, the change in lifestyle can sometimes lead to people not paying as close attention to their ulcerative colitis as they might at home. With factors such as stress, sleep and diet affecting ulcerative colitis, you’ll want to make sure you have good travel plans in place.
