Insurance cover - UK

Posted , 8 users are following.

After my recent diagnosis of AF I'm obviously more concious of the need for insurance (life, health, travel) but I can't find anywhere that would include treatment for AF (regardless of cost) should I need it in the future (I've had what is considered to be a successful ablation 6 months ago and am currently on no meds). Has anyone got any advice as I would like to go on holiday but I'm holding off as AF would be excluded from any policy, I've also tried to get private healthcare cover but cant get AF included on any policy either - any advice would be very welcome thanks

    I've spoke to aviva today and basically the only way I can get cover for AF is to be clear of it for 5 years - so it can't pop up in my medical history for 5 years, so nothing from a GP appointment to a full blown a&we visit for 5 years - then I don't have to declare it apparently.
