Life Insurance with Angioedema

Overview

Often standard insurers are willing to offer Life Insurance at an increased premium for those who have well-controlled Angioedema.

If you have not already been declined for life cover, you could consider approaching mainstream insurers first.
 

Make a Life Insurance Enquiry

If you need a specialist underwriter.

If you have not been able to get a suitable quotation for Life cover, Pulse specialise in taking your Angioedema and any other specific conditions and needs into account and finding you Life Insurance cover, if it is available.  

We use our knowledge and experience to find a solution when other Life Insurers have declined to quote.

It will be easier to find cover if your condition has become stable.  It is almost inevitable that we will require a Medical Report before cover can be issued. We will discuss this with you when you enquire.

 

Conditions which may occur with Angioedema

There are some conditions where it is more common to also suffer other conditions at the same time than not. Equally, it is not always the case that these multiple conditions go hand in hand.

In all cases, you have multiple conditions whether directly related or caused by your other condition, please ensure you tell us about all of them. In some cases, you may find it easier to complete each of our specific enquiry questions for each condition. Or you may prefer to detail everything at once when answering your primary condition questions.

 

To complete multiple conditions, select your first condition and when that is complete, you will have the option to add more one at a time till you are ready.

The following conditions are known to present alongside angioedema:-

Your application with Pulse Insurance will always be individually considered by our human underwriters based on the specifics of the details you provide; you will not be subject to some glib computer system assumption extracted from a condition name or worse. 

If you are at all unsure how to proceed, please to not hesitate to give our friendly Pulse Team a call on 01280 841430

 

Why Pulse Insurance?

  • Pulse Insurance have been focused on finding unusual cover since 1998
  • We strive to offer a caring and sensitive service
  • We are knowledgeable insurance professionals who work as a team
  • We provide a personal service to guide you through
  • If we cannot help, it will not be for the want of trying or know-how

While finding cover for everyone is not always possible and the premium will be higher to reflect your increased risk, we like to think we are rather good at helping people find the cover they need.

In most cases of Angioedema we can offer indicative premiums and/or a sense of whether cover may be available or not early on; so you can decide how to proceed.

 

Being Transparent

It is always important to declare your Angioedema and any other medical conditions completely.

 

Your Personal & Medical Details

Everything you disclose about your Angioedema and any underlying conditions to any life insurer or life agent should be treated with sensitivity and appropriate levels of privacy.

 

Your Health

Your Pulse underwriting specialist will look to gain a detailed picture of your health and you should take care to disclose everything. These factors will be explicitly considered when determining the fair premium, you would pay.

Life cover is issued based on a “snapshot” of your health.  Once your policy has been issued, neither your premium or your cover will be adversely affected if your health subsequently worsens.

 

Requirements for more information

While our initial enquiry may not gather enough information to provide an indication of cost, our insurers may ask for more in depth information regarding your Angioedema and/or any other conditions. Sometimes the details you can provide may allow them to reduce the premium they seek.

As you have a medical condition, it is possible that underwriters will need to seek a Doctor’s report or for you to undergo medical examinations, blood tests or other tests that will confirm your health to allow them to quote an accurate premium and confirm cover details. The costs involved in obtaining the medical information are usually paid by the underwriter, but if not, you will be informed before they are requested.

Pulse will never sell your details to anyone ever. We will use your details to provide the service you have asked for according to the permissions you grant us– read our Privacy and Data Protection policy in full.

 

Medical Reports

If you have any recent or relevant medical reports, these can enable underwriters to provide a more accurate indication. 
Please send these either to medical.reports@pulse-insurance.co.uk or post them to us
n.b. Do not worry if you don’t have any medical reports as they are not usually needed to give an indication of cover / cost.
It may be necessary anyway for separate specific medical reports to be sought if you decide to proceed with an application.
If you have any queries, please give a member of the team a call on 01280 841430.

Additional Covers

Pulse may be able to offer covers beyond everyday Life Insurance to give you the peace of mind and protection you desire.

The reasons you may need life cover may be simple or complex, but having the right covers brings peace of mind for you and your family.
