Insurance for travellers with glaucoma
B Portwood & Co Ltd can provide cheap travel
insurance for travellers with medical conditions such as glaucoma or
other eye infections or melanomas.
is a requirement that all medical conditions are disclosed when travel
insurance is effected as the probability of incurring a re-occurrence of
the medical condition with the attendant medical expenses is increased
and this is reflected in the correct premium to be charged for the risk.
Redwood travel insurance can cover travellers with glaucoma, usually at
reasonable cost. Indeed we have already provided quotations and arranged
cover for many travellers with glaucoma.
However whether glaucoma
can be covered depends on the particular circumstances of the traveller.
Travel outside Europe, for long
periods, as well as other medical
conditions are all factors, as is the traveller's age. We specialise in
the over 65 travel insurance market and are therefore used to arranging
cover for a plethora of conditions.
product is suitable for travellers up to the age of 85, so being over
70, over 75 or even over 80 may not be a problem. In addition the
maximum length of a trip is 365 days - we are therefore uniquely
suited to covering long stays for customers - even to America
or Australia. Online medical screening
asks for details of all medical conditions and an immediate quote/ no
quote can be obtained. People with glaucoma who require an annual travel
insurance (up to 75) or cruise insurance can also be accommodated.
will help if full details of the medical condition are to hand e.g.
number of medications. Please note we do not recommend family members to
complete the application on behalf of the person suffering from glaucoma as
they may not have all the information to hand and, as medical bills can
be expensive, could be costly. (Often other information such as whether
the traveller can walk a suitable distance without having to pause for
breath is requested.)
note that we do not apply an increased excess for medical expenses, due
to glaucoma. We have three contracts, bronze, silver and gold, offering
increased benefits and default excesses of £100, £50 and £25. These
may be removed upon payment of an additional premium which in some cases
represents extremely good value for money.
