Von Willebrand Disease
Life Insurance for those with Von Willebrand Disease is often available from mainstream life insurers unless it is severe or there are other conditions or complications. However, please be aware that if you also have Hepatitis or are HIV positive that it may be difficult to obtain cover.
Mostly Von Willebrand Disease does not present increased risk to longevity. If you have not already been declined for life cover, you could consider approaching mainstream insurers first.
But, each person case is different and needs due consideration by a life underwriter. Pulse Insurance specialise and may well be able to find cover for those with Von Willebrand Disease and other conditions, when other insurers decline. However, we may not be able to offer cover if you also have Hepatitis or are HIV positive.
If you need a specialist underwriter
Pulse specialise in taking your Blood Disorder and any other specific conditions and needs into account and finding Life Insurance cover for you, if it is available.
We use our knowledge and experience to find a solution when other Life Insurers have declined to quote.

While finding cover for everyone is not always possible and the premium will be higher to reflect increased risk, we like to think we are good at helping people find the cover they need.
In many Von Willebrand Disease cases, we can offer indicative premiums and/or sense of if cover may be available or not early on; so, you can decide to proceed or not.
It is always important to declare your Von Willebrand Disease and any other medical conditions completely.
Your Personal & Medical Details
Everything you disclose about your Von Willebrand Disease to any life insurer or life agent should be treated with sensitivity and appropriate levels of privacy.
Every person with more severe Von Willebrand Disease knows that their state of health, any complications and their lifestyle will impact their risk and the cover available. These factors will be explicitly considered when determining the fair premium, you would pay.
Your Pulse underwriting specialist will look to gain a detailed picture of your condition.
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 Von Willebrand Disease 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. 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.
If you have any recent or relevant medical reports, these can enable underwriters to provide a more accurate indication.
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.
Pulse may be able to offer covers beyond everyday Life Insurance to give you the peace of mind and protection you desire.
