eave the worry at home with travel insurance for a gallbladder condition

If you’re going on holiday with a gallbladder condition, it’s important that you tell us about your condition, along with any other pre-existing medical conditions, when you buy your travel insurance.

With our cover for gallbladder conditions, if the worst happens on holiday, you’ll feel well protected. After all, if anything goes wrong, we’ll always aim to put things right.

Why letting us know about your gallbladder condition is important

John1 was on holiday in the USA in February 2019 when he had an unfortunate accident.

Having received urgent medical attention at a hospital, he phoned our medical emergency medical support team for help.

We set John’s mind at rest straight away, reassuring him that we’d contact the hospital directly to sort out the bill.

Because of us, John didn’t have to make any credit card payments, or dip into his life savings. With our help, he was able to focus on what was really important – getting better.

Where possible, if a medical bill comes to more than £350, we’ll try to pay it directly to the hospital.

It’s vital that your travel insurance matches your medical history. As John knows, if you’re unlucky enough to have an accident, our travel insurance is there to help put things right.

What sort of questions will I be asked about my gallbladder condition?

To make sure the quote we give you matches your personal needs, we’ll ask a few simple questions about your gallbladder and other health conditions. It’s all quite straightforward and we’re always there to answer any questions you may have.

Depending on the nature of your condition, they may include:

  • Are you awaiting any procedures to treat your gallbladder or bile ducts?
  • Have you had any symptoms related to your gallbladder or bile ducts in the last 12 months?
  • If you have gallbladder cancer, has there ever been a spread from the bile duct to other parts of the body?
  • If you have a gallbladder polyp, is this polyp benign or malignant?
  • Has there ever been a spread from the bile duct to other parts of the body?
  • Have you had a cholecystectomy? (gallbladder removal)?
  • If you have had gallbladder removal, are you awaiting any further investigations or treatment for biliary stones?
  • How long ago was your last procedure to the gallbladder?

If I buy my travel insurance but then my medical conditions change, what should I do?

You’ll need to let us know as soon as you can. Don’t worry, we specialise in covering people who have pre-existing medical conditions, and we understand they can suddenly change. Call our Customer Service Team and they’ll be happy to help.

As long as we can insure your updated health conditions, we will be able to add them to your policy.

Forgetting to tell us about a health condition may affect the validity of your travel insurance, and your claim could be denied if you need us in the future.

Will my gallbladder condition be covered by my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

If your holiday or trip includes Europe, you should carry your EHIC with you at all times.

The EHIC entitles you to free or subsidised healthcare in most European countries when using the state healthcare system.

But remember, EHIC is not the same as travel insurance, and it will not cover you for cancellation of your trip or emergency travel home following a health problem. For that, you’ll need travel insurance with pre-existing health condition cover.

Your EHIC can help to reduce the cost of your medical treatment in countries where subsidised healthcare is available. If you use your EHIC for emergency treatment and are asked to pay a subsidised fee, we will waiver the excess fee for your medical emergency claim.

Before you travel, you should always check that your destination is covered by EHIC. That way you can know what to expect if you do need treatment for your gallbladder or other health conditions during your trip.
