A pre-existing medical condition is one which you are already aware and/or have sought medical treatment prior to the Insured Travel, or a side effect of or secondary condition caused by this condition.
If you have a pre-existing condition you will need to seek approval from your treating physician to undertake your proposed Journey. If this approval is given the policy will provide cover for unexpected and unforeseen complications arising from your condition. The policy provides no cover for expenses that are expected or foreseen – including the cost of scheduled check-ups/treatment, maintaining ongoing pharmaceutical treatment, or other planned expenses.
If your treating practitioner recommends against travelling the policy will not provide cover for your pre-existing condition. If you require travel insurance in this circumstance please complete the pre-existing condition form and return it to insurance for insurer review.
Note that the insurer retains the right to:
- Agree to insure, or
- Partially insure, or
- Decline to insure the proposed travel.
Note that all costs associated with the assessment and any additional premium is the responsibility of the Traveller. These costs are not covered by the University.
