Pack peace of mind with travel insurance for high cholesterol

If you’re going away with high cholesterol, it’s vital that you let us know, along with any other pre-existing health conditions you may have, when you buy your travel insurance.

With our help, you can enjoy your holiday knowing you’re well protected and if anything goes wrong, we’ll always aim to put it right.

Why letting us know about your high cholesterol matters

John’s(1) holiday  to the USA was sadly interrupted by a trip and fall.

Following emergency medical attention at a nearby hospital, he phoned our medical emergency medical support team to ask for help.

We took the worry away from John, reassuring him that we would contact the hospital and sort the bill out directly.

Because he’d bought his travel insurance with us, John’s fall didn’t hit his wallet. With his medical costs taken care of, he could concentrate on the important part, getting better.

It’s very important that your travel insurance reflects your individual medical circumstances. Like John, if you do have a medical mishap during your trip, our cover is there to help get you back on your feet.

What sort of questions can I expect to be asked about my high cholesterol?

To make sure that our travel insurance policy matches your needs, we’ll ask you some simple questions about your high cholesterol along with any other medical conditions you may have. We like to do things step-by-step to make sure we get everything right, but it shouldn’t take long. The questions may include:

  • Has a blood test EVER at any time shown your cholesterol level to be raised?
  • Have you been advised to take medication for high blood pressure?
  • How many medicines does your doctor advise you to take for high blood pressure?
  • Has your dose been increased or have you been prescribed a new tablet in the last six months?
  • Have you been advised to take medication to lower your cholesterol?

Will my high cholesterol condition be covered by a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

If your travel includes Europe, it’s important to take an EHIC with you.

An EHIC is free and allows you to receive healthcare for free or at a subsidised rate in most European countries when you use the state healthcare system (like our NHS).

If you need emergency medical treatment for your condition, use your EHIC but end up having to pay a subsidised fee for your healthcare, we’ll remove the excess fee on your medical emergency claim.

But do keep in mind: EHIC is not the same as having good travel insurance. It will not cover you for problems on your trip or holiday such as having to cancel your trip or emergency travel home following a health problem. To protect yourself for those and other unfortunate events, you need travel insurance with pre-existing medical cover.

Before your trip, do check that your destination actually is covered by EHIC (it applies in most but not all of Europe). That way, if you do need treatment for your high cholesterol or any other health condition during your trip, you can be prepared.

If I buy my travel insurance but then my medical conditions change, do I need to update my policy?

Yes, you’ll need to let us know as soon as possible. As long as we can insure your updated conditions, we’ll add them to your policy. That way, you’ll be able to travel with full confidence that you’re properly covered. Otherwise, we may not be able to cover you if you need to claim further down the line.
