Travel Insurance with Chemotherapy
My husband is newly diagnosed with Stage 4 Bowel Cancer and going onto 12 cycles of Chemotherapy. We were thinking about having some weekends away in the UK to keep spirits up. Technically we don't have to have travel Insurance as he will be in within the NHS and they aren't going to be very expensive trips - if the excess and premium was high it wouldn't be worth it! I thought I would try and get a couple of quotes though just to see and my existing Insurer and Staysure have turned it down - I think because he is on current chemo. It has spread to his liver. He has no operations planned currently and is not terminal. Nationwide said they wouldn't insure him if he was terminal.
This has also made me a bit nervous about whether in the future he would get cover to go abroad - i wouldn't expect us to go abroad unless he was on a chemo break but we would like to make the most of things
Does anyone know if you can get Insurance while on Chemo and which company did you use?
