    Good question. I was just wondering the same thing. I'm here in the United States and am on Medi Cal (low income). I know it covers emergency room services, but unfortunately many hospitals wouldn't take me if I had something more to where I needed to be hospitalized. We are planning on traveling, but it definitely is a fear I'm afraid of.

    HI

    I was diagnosed 5yrs ago. I was on holiday in America when it happened. After diagnosis when I got home to UK I asked my consultant if I should get travel insurance against this in the future and he said there was no need to declare it. Luckily I havent had a flare up whilst away since but I always take an anti biotic prescription just in case.

    Yes. I get my insurance from my my Bank as part of the current account package, and have to declare every single medical condition and medication. I paid £116.40 in total for annual European and UK cover. Next year I will have to pay an extra £75 when I reach 70. On a recent holiday TV programme, a case was highlighted where an Insurance Company would not pay out for emergency life saving treatment, because the policy holder had not declared a condition, unrelated to the actual emergency, and it cost them thousands of pounds. Best to be safe than sorry.
